This is the Maximus client. Maximus is a BlitzMax module manager.

The client allows you to install BlitzMax modules that are available from the
Maximus website (http://maximus.htbaa.com, but you can also host your own).
When you attempt to install a module the client will scan your module directory
to see which modules are already installed and if you're missing a dependency
the client will fetch that module as well along with the rest of its dependencies.

Modules not being managed by Maximus are left alone. When you attempt to install
a module not currently managed by Maximus it will simply tell you which modules
it skipped. Missing dependencies will still be installed.

Maximus is built with cross platform compatibility in mind, meaning it will work
on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. Which are all platforms that are being supported
by BlitzMax.

GETTING THE CLIENT

You can either download a precompiled binary from http://maximus.htbaa.com/client
or you can try to compile the client yourself.

To compile Maximus yourself you'll need to install the (latest versions) of
the following additional modules:

    * bah.volumes    (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/bah/volumes)
    * gman.zipengine (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/gman/zipengine)
    * htbaapub.rest  (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/htbaapub/rest)
    * duct.variables (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/duct/variables)
    * duct.objectmap (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/duct/objectmap)
    * duct.json      (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/duct/json)
    * duct.locale    (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/duct/locale)
    * duct.clapp     (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/duct/clapp)
    * duct.time      (http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/duct/time)

Once you have these modules and their dependencies installed you can continue
by compiling maximus.bmx as a command line application.

Maximus GUI is being build with Logic GUI 5.4. Unfortunately Logic GUI isn't
available for free but can be bought from http://jsp.logiczone.de. Because of
this some external files aren't included in the repository. The files I'm
talking about reside in gui/ExternalTypes and come with Logic GUI.

GETTING STARTED - CONFIGURATION

Run maximus(.exe) from the command line. If Maximus can't detect your BMXPATH
you have to explicitly set this environment variable.

    On Windows      $ set BMXPATH=C:\BlitzMax
    On Linux        $ export BMXPATH=~/BlitzMax

It's also possible to change the configuration defaults for Maximus by creating
a config file. You can do this by creating a maximus.config file. For Maximus GUI
on Linux you need to create this file with at least the maxpath setting specified.

    On Windows      : C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\maximus\maximus.config
               -OR- : C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\maximus\maximus.config
    On Linux        : ~/.maximus/maximus.config
    On Mac OSX      : ~/Library/Application Support/maximus/maximus.config

An example configuration file would look like this:

    language en
    maxpath C:\BlitzMax
    modpath C:\BlitzMax\mod
    sourcesurl http://maximus.htbaa.com/module/sources/json
    sourcesfile sources
    proxyserver 1.2.3.4:8080
    autoupdate true

You should only add a setting for which the default isn't optimal for your
situation. For example, the proxyserver setting can be set if you require any
outgoing connection to use a proxy server. The proxyserver setting will accept
anything in the format of [protocol://][user:password@]machine[:port].

GETTING STARTED - COMMANDS

A few examples you could try:

    $ maximus help install
    $ maximus help list
    $ maximus list htbaapub
    $ maximus list duct

To install a specific version of a module:

    $ maximus install htbaapub.rest/1.06

To install the latest version of a module:

    $ maximus install htbaapub.rest

To install the latest development version of a module:

    $ maximus install htbaapub.rest/dev

DEVELOPMENT

The development process of the client uses git-flow. You can find more
information about it at the following places:
