A project which demonstrates a Reason workflow with Esy.


You need Esy, you can install the beta using [npm][]:

% npm install -g esy@latest

Then you can install the project dependencies using:

% esy install

Then build the project dependencies along with the project itself:

% esy build

Now you can run your editor within the environment (which also includes merlin):

% esy $EDITOR
% esy vim

After you make some changes to source code, you can re-run project's build using:

% esy build

And test compiled executable (runs scripts.tests specified in package.json):

% esy test

Shell into environment:

% esy shell

Create Prebuilt Release:

esy allows creating prebuilt binary packages for your current platform, with no dependencies.

% esy release
% cd _release
% npm publish
