Fake - Fancy Make

Fake is a build and automation tool for Fancy, similar to Ruby's Rake. You write your tasks in pure Fancy code, by default saving them to Fakefiles.

A standard collection of common Fake tasks will be added soon.

Installation

To install Fake use Fancy's built-in package system:

$ fancy install fancy-lang/fake

Also make sure that ~/.fancy/packages/bin is in your $PATH environment variable. Set it in your ~/.bash_profile or similar:

export PATH=$PATH:~/.fancy/packages/bin

Tasks

Fake allows the definition of tasks that may depend on other tasks to complete.

Given a Fakefile with the following contents:

Fake tasks: {
  clean: {
    desc: "Remove all *.fyc files"
    run: {
      sh: ("rm", "-rf", Directory list: "**/*.fyc") verbose: true
    }
  }
}

You can invoke it like so:

$ fake clean

To list all available tasks run:

$ fake -T
fake clean    |  Remove all *.fyc files

To see a list of general options use the help command:

$ fake --help

Namespaces

You can place tasks in namespaces by placing them inside a named block that doesn't contain its own run option:

Fake tasks: {
  namespace_a: {
    task_a: {
      run: {
        # ...
      }
    }
  }

  namespace_b: {
    task_b: {
      depends: 'namespace_a:task_a
      run: {
        # ...
      }
    }
  }
}

Specifying dependencies

You can specify dependencies via the depends option, like so:

Fake tasks: {
  task_a: {
    desc: "This task shall be run before task_b"
    run: {
      "Running task a" println
    }
  }

  task_b: {
    desc: "This tasks depends on task_a"
    depends: 'task_a # pass an array of task names if you depend on more than one task
    run: {
      "Running task b" println
    }
  }
}

When no task is specified the default task will be run (as with Rake).

Note:

This is still in the making. More features are coming soon, but defining basic tasks and dependencies between them works already.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
