A dependency orchestration tool.
Building from source
Dux uses Google's Bazel as its build system. Follow Google's installation instructions here: https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/install.html to get Bazel on your machine. Note: we have had problems installing Bazel on Fedora (although it worked on CentOS).
The IDE support for Bazel does not seem to be that mature right now (at least for IntelliJ), so we have just been using Bazel from the command line.
Once you have Bazel installed, run
bazel build //:dux from the top-level
directory. The resulting output is in the /output directory. To run the
./bazel-bin/dux [options]. A typical use case would be:
First, demonstrate a build to dux:
./bazel-bin/dux -b "bucket_name" -c command_to_trace
Then, check dependencies on another computer after copying over the config file:
./bazel-bin/dux -b "bucket_name" -k
This will not do anything meaningful until you set up a cloud backend for dux. See /credentials/README.md for details.
Dux also uses Travis-CI for testing. Again, see /credentials/README.md for info on how to configure your credentials with Travis.
