Suggest install node through nvm

go get -u
npm install -g webpack
npm install

Your need to know what is react, and golang. In develop mode, Support react hot reload

npm install
make dev

Open another terminal

go build && ./gohttp



POST /upload-dir

upload-dir is just a name which you can change it easily.

Field name Description Example
file Upload file file=@upload.txt
path Upload path(optional) path=/tmp/
name Save name (optional, need version set) name=foo
version Upload version version=1.2.0


# Normal upload
curl -F file=@upload.txt ${SERVER}

# Versioned upload
curl -F file=@foo-windows.txt -F file=@foo-mac.txt -F name=foo -F version=1.0.1 ${SERVER}

# will create dir structure
  |- foo-latest(symlink) -> foo-1.0.1
  `- foo-1.0.1/
      |- foo-windows.txt
      `- foo-mac.txt


  3. update package.json dependencies
  4. react hot reload QA
You can’t perform that action at this time.
