GPII for Windows
Contains platform-specific components of the GPII architecture for Windows. See http://gpii.net/ for overall details of the GPII project. After checkout out using git, this project will require node.js and npm to be installed - please consult http://wiki.gpii.net/w/Setting_Up_Your_Development_Environment for installation instructions.
Note that tests and function involving the High Contrast setting will fail on all current versions of Windows (including Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8 SP2) unless the following hotfix from Microsoft is applied: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2516889
See http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-49 for more details of this issue.
We are in the process of adding support for building and running utility tasks with grunt.js. At some point these will replace the current build scripts.
To use these, you must be running a recent version of npm, necessarily greater than 1.4. If you need to upgrade npm you can issue the following command:
npm install -g npm
To build the GPII for Windows using grunt, perform the following:
git clone https://github.com/GPII/windows.git cd windows npm install --ignore-scripts=true grunt build
Note that whenever you run the
npm install task for this project, you must use the option appearing above.
This project is still bundled with command-line build scripts (with the same effect as the above grunt builds) - support for these will be withdrawn soon. You can operate these as follows:
build.cmdwill check out GPII's universal project https://github.com/GPII/universal in a subdirectory.
start.cmdwill run the GPII personalisation system
