Eclipse is recommended for development as the project settings are preconfigured.
- Import the gitblit project into your Eclipse workspace. There will be lots of build errors.
- Using Ant, execute the
build.xmlscript in the project root. This will download all necessary build dependencies and will also generate the Keys class for accessing settings.
- Select your gitblit project root and Refresh the project, this should correct all build problems.
- Using JUnit, execute the
com.gitblit.tests.GitBlitSuitetest suite. This will clone some repositories from the web and run through the unit tests.
- Execute the com.gitblit.GitBlitServer class to start Gitblit GO.
Building Tips & Tricks
- If you are running Ant from an ANSI-capable console, consider setting the
MX_COLORenvironment variable before executing Ant.
- The build script will honor your Maven proxy settings. If you need to fine-tune this, please review the settings.moxie documentation.
