lychee.js Breeder

The lycheejs-breeder is a Command-Line Wizard that helps to create and manage Projects and Libraries that use the lychee.js Engine stack.

It can be seen as a wizard that eases up annoying copy/paste actions and that automates configuration of any kind.

The workflow and how it is used is explained in the Workflow chapter.

Initializing a Project

The lychee.js Breeder can be started in the Terminal (bash) via the lycheejs-breeder command.

The init action will create a new Project or Library using the Boilerplate. This new Project is then already fully integrated into the lychee.js Engine stack, including peer-to-peer networking support and serialization and sandboxing features.

The pull action will isolate a Library into the Project's ./libraries folder so that you can distribute external dependencies with your Project - e.g. for deployment on static web servers.

cd /opt/lycheejs;

lycheejs-breeder; # show help

mkdir -p ./projects/my-project;
cd ./projects/my-project;

lycheejs-breeder init;                   # init a project
lycheejs-breeder pull /libraries/lychee; # pull a library

# (developing phase)
# (fixing phase)
# (fertilizing phase)

lycheejs-breeder push;


Isolating a Library

The lychee.js Breeder can also isolate Libraries into the Project, so that a static build or deployment is possible.

cd /opt/lycheejs;

cd ./projects/my-project;

lycheejs-breeder pull /libraries/harvester; # pull a library


All local libraries are stored in the ./libraries folder for each project.

If the local libraries folder is not existing, the global /opt/lycheejs/libraries folder will be used as a lookup for a library.

If you want to revert a pulled library, simply remove the ./libraries/<identifier> folder and it will get back into the defaulted global lookup behaviour.

Note that libraries are typically injected in the index.html or harvester.js file. So you have to remove the require() statements or <script> elements accordingly afterwards.

Publishing a Project or Library

The lychee.js Breeder can also publish Libraries and Projects, so they are publicly available for the Artificial Intelligence cloud called lychee.js Garden.

This will make your project or library available to the public. If you want to have other people's AIs learning from your code, this is the necessary step to achieve that.

However, as the AI is modifying and improving your code, the license will change accordingly to the license as stated in the of the lychee.js Engine.

cd /opt/lycheejs;

cd ./projects/my-project;
lycheejs-breeder push;

Now follow the instructions of the lycheejs-breeder wizard to publish your project or library.
