Simple.Web is a REST-focused, object-oriented Web Framework for .NET 4. More information on it's background can be found here.
You can build Simple.Web using the command-line options outlined below, or simply through MS Visual Studio or MonoDevelop. It is recommended that anyone planning to contribute to the project familiarise themselves with the command-line as it will be the successful completion of this build process that will stand your pull-request in good stead.
The command-line process uses RAKE, a Ruby build system. It will therefore be necessary to have Ruby >= 1.9.2 installed. Dependent on your operating system there are several options to accomplish this but we first recommend you can check current installation by typing
ruby -v from console prompt.
> ruby -v ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [x86_64-darwin11.1.0]
If you do not yet have Ruby installed on your system check out RubyInstaller (for Windows) or RVM (for *nix). You can also use RVM to install and manage multiple versions of Ruby in a *nix environment.
RubyGems are Ruby's own managed packages and it's through this system we need to install some build dependencies. To simplify their installation simply type the following at the console prompt:
gem utility it should install the
Albacore gems. You can check currently installed gems at any time by typing
gem list --local from a console prompt.
From the root of the repository you can see all available build tasks by typing:
> rake -T rake build # Build rake clean # Remove any temporary products. rake clobber # Remove any generated file. rake full # Build + Tests + Specs rake publish # Build + Tests + Specs + Publish (remote) rake publocal # Build + Tests + Specs + Publish (local) rake quick # Build + Unit tests rake test # Build + Tests (default)
You can specify any of these tasks when building Simple.Web, or simply just type
rake for it's configured default.
Task: Build + ...
The variation available is to faciliate faster repetitive build times depending on your current workflow. For example if you are regularly compiling mid-development you may choose
rake quick which confines it's boundary to unit tests. If you are looking for greater assurance
rake test (the default) will run both unit and integration tests. Finally you can choose
rake full to run all tests and specifications.
This will remove all intermediate files creating during the build process, but leave build artifacts and results intact.
This will remove all build-time generated files, effectively restoring your repository to that in source control. This should be the same as performing
git clean -xfd.
Task: Publish / Publocal
Allows you to package Simple.Web's nuget packages and publish to either NuGet.org using
rake publish, or an alternative nuget server using
To enable publishing you will need to set the appropriate environment variables:
rake publish apiurl_local -- NuGet server url (e.g. "http://nuget.org") apikey_local -- ServerAPI key that authenticates your publish rake publocal apiurl_remote -- NuGet server url (e.g. "http://nuget.local") apikey_remote -- Server API key that authenticates your publish
Due to a [variance validity bug] 1 in Mono 2.10.x you will require version 3.x (MDK Installer recommended). We continue to petition Xamarin to make another 2.x STABLE release to address this. In the meantime our continuous integration setup will continue to run against 2.x STABLE and 3.x BETA releases of Mono.
NuGet.exe on *nix with Mono
If you are running on *nix or OS X Darwin (before Mountain Lion) you may need to tell Mono which certificate authorities to trust when performing NuGet operations over https:
> sudo mozroots --import --sync Mozilla Roots Importer - version 188.8.131.52 Download and import trusted root certificates from Mozilla's MXR. Copyright 2002, 2003 Motus Technologies.

Contributions to Simple.Web are gratefully received but we do ask you to follow certain conditions:
- Fork the main markrendle/Simple.Web
- Use a branch when developing in your own forked repository, DO NOT work against master
- Write a unit test to validate new logic, ideally using TDD
- Ensure all projects build and tests pass, use the command-line option
- Make a pull request from
- Provide a description of the motivation behind the changes
.. but all that said, don't be afraid :-)
Versioning is of assemblies and nuget packages is dictated by that specified through
VERSION.txt. The main contributors to the project will manage releases and SemVer-compliant version numbers. We ask you do not include VERSION.txt in any of your pull-requests, just indicate in it's accompanying description any thoughts in this direction.
