lychee.js Harvester

The lycheejs-harvester is a Continous Integration server that helps to ease up the development of Projects and Libraries that use the lychee.js Engine stack.

It can be seen as a webserver and peer-to-peer server that synchronizes the Artificial Intelligence's knowledge, automates the build, compile, refactor and packaging pipeline and serves as a WebSocket server for peers of the Application.

It also integrates the Remote Debugging protocol and the analytics part of the Artificial Intelligence that helps it understand what went wrong in case of errors.


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

cd /opt/lycheejs;

lycheejs-harvester; # show help

lycheejs-harvester start development; # start development profile
lycheejs-harvester status;            # show whether running (with PID) or not
lycheejs-harvester stop;              # stop

lycheejs-harvester start development --sandbox; # start in sandbox mode



The lychee.js Harvester should be run in one instance per machine. If more instances are required, try out the downstream fork lycheejs-harvester that can be run on a per-folder basis.

  • start <profile> starts a server with the given profile.
  • status shows if a server is already running (e.g. Running (1337)) or not (Not running).
  • stop stops a server (if any server is active).


The sandbox mode can be seen as the development mode, as it prevents the software bots from synchronizing broken / unstable code to the peer cloud and disables the automated build, compile and refactor pipeline.

  • --debug enables debug mode and shows more debug messages.
  • --sandbox enables sandbox mode and disables integration with the Software Bots.


The defaulted profiles are development and production.

Another example profile is also available, which shows the custom setup of the website.

All profiles are also available in the filesystem. The folder where profiles are stored in is /opt/lycheejs/bin/harvester.

For example, the development profile is stored in the file /opt/lycheejs/bin/harvester/development.json.

Each profile's file consists of a JSON structure that has these settings and properties:

	"host":    "localhost", // host of server
	"port":    8080,        // port of server
	"debug":   false,       // enables debug mode
	"sandbox": true         // enables sandbox mode
