This repository

A quick, easy-to-use command-line utility that wraps access to GoodData APIs to simplify creating projects, building data model, extracting and loading data.

README.md

This is GoodData data integration toolkit. The toolkit contains data modeling, transformation and loading utilities that work on top of the GoodData REST APIs.

Unless you wish to participate in development of the tool, you should choose the easier binary install.

Building from sources

See separate Windows and Unix instructions.

UNIX/Mac installation

  1. download the code and unpack (or git clone this repository):

  2. make sure you have Apache Maven installed:

    $ which mvn
    /usr/bin/mvn
    
  3. create the M2_HOME environment variable that points to the Maven root directory

    $ export M2_HOME=path-to-your-maven-installation-dir
    
  4. Make sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable points to your Java installation directory. Please note that only the Java versions 1.5 and 1.6 are currently supported.

  5. build the toolkit:

    $ mvn install
    
  6. build the client distribution

    $ cd cli-distro
    $ mvn assembly:assembly
    
  7. unpack one of the distributions that have been built in the cli-distro/target subdirectory:

    • gooddata-cl-1.1.0-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz
    • gooddata-cl-1.1.0-SNAPSHOT.zip
  1. run the gdi.sh without arguments to get help from the unpacked distribution:

    $ ./bin/gdi.sh
    usage: GdcDI
     -h,--host <arg>       GoodData host
     -p,--password <arg>   GoodData password
     -u,--username <arg>   GoodData username
    [...]
    

Windows installation

    Apache Maven 2.2.1 (r801777; 2009-08-06 21:16:01 +0200)
    [...]
    
  3. create the M2_HOME environment variable that points to the Maven root directory

    C:\> SET M2_HOME=path-to-your-maven-installation-dir
    
  4. Make sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable points to your Java installation directory. Please note that only the Java versions 1.5 and 1.6 are currently supported.
