This repo is a set of tools for Nightingale.


It's a bash script to compile Nightingale and upload nightlies if there are changes on a branch of the repo. You have to configure it by editing

rsync is used to upload files on, so first be sure to generate keys, and upload your public key on your account:

(Be sure to avoid passphrase if you want the script to run automatically)

How to:

cp #copy the sample to the config file
nano #edit config file using your favorite text editor
chmod +x #to make the script executable
./ #to launch the build process
./ -f #to force build even if there are no changes in the branch

You can put an entry in cron (/etc/crontab) to build it everyday:

# m h dom mon dow user     command
  0 0   *   *   * youruser /home/youruser/./

Linux/Mac users:

Be sure to have rsync and git installed
