mct Omnibus project

omnibus-mct (media conversion tools) includes several multimedia conversion tools and libraries, such as:

Installation

You must have a sane Ruby 1.9+ environment with Bundler installed. Ensure all the required gems are installed:

$ bundle install --binstubs

Usage

Build

You create a platform-specific package using the build project command:

$ bin/omnibus build project omnibus-mct

The platform/architecture type of the package created will match the platform where the build project command is invoked. For example, running this command on a MacBook Pro will generate a Mac OS X package. After the build completes packages will be available in the pkg/ folder.

Clean

You can clean up all temporary files generated during the build process with the clean command:

$ bin/omnibus clean

Adding the --purge purge option removes ALL files generated during the build including the project install directory (/opt/mct) and the package cache directory (/var/cache/omnibus/pkg):

$ bin/omnibus clean --purge

Help

Full help for the Omnibus command line interface can be accessed with the help command:

$ bin/omnibus help

Kitchen-based Build Environment

Every Omnibus project ships will a project-specific Berksfile and Vagrantfile that will allow you to build your omnibus projects on all of the projects listed in the .kitchen.yml. You can add/remove additional platforms as needed by changing the list found in the .kitchen.yml platforms YAML stanza.

This build environment is designed to get you up-and-running quickly. However, there is nothing that restricts you to building on other platforms. Simply use the omnibus cookbook to setup your desired platform and execute the build steps listed above.

The default build environment requires Test Kitchen and VirtualBox for local development. Test Kitchen also exposes the ability to provision instances using various cloud providers like AWS, DigitalOcean, or OpenStack. For more information, please see the Test Kitchen documentation.

Once you have tweaked your .kitchen.yml (or .kitchen.local.yml) to your liking, you can bring up an individual build environment using the kitchen command.

$ bundle exec kitchen converge ubuntu-12.04

Then login to the instance and build the project as described in the Usage section:

$ bundle exec kitchen login ubuntu-12.04
[vagrant@ubuntu...] $ cd mct
[vagrant@ubuntu...] $ bundle install
[vagrant@ubuntu...] $ ...
[vagrant@ubuntu...] $ ./bin/omnibus build project omnibus-mct

For a complete list of all commands and platforms, run kitchen list or kitchen help.
