rebar

rebar is an Erlang build tool that makes it easy to compile and test Erlang applications, port drivers and releases.

Build Status

rebar is a self-contained Erlang script, so it's easy to distribute or even embed directly in a project. Where possible, rebar uses standard Erlang/OTP conventions for project structures, thus minimizing the amount of build configuration work. rebar also provides dependency management, enabling application writers to easily re-use common libraries from a variety of locations (git, hg, etc).

Building

Information on building and installing Erlang/OTP can be found here (more info).

Dependencies

To build rebar you will need a working installation of Erlang R13B03 (or later).

Should you want to clone the rebar repository, you will also require git.

Downloading

You can download a pre-built binary version of rebar from:

https://github.com/rebar/rebar/wiki/rebar

Building rebar

$ git clone git://github.com/rebar/rebar.git
$ cd rebar
$ ./bootstrap
Recompile: src/getopt
...
Recompile: src/rebar_utils
==> rebar (compile)
Congratulations! You now have a self-contained script called "rebar" in
your current working directory. Place this script anywhere in your path
and you can use rebar to build OTP-compliant apps.

Community and Resources

In case of problems that cannot be solved through documentation or examples, you may want to try to contact members of the community for help. The community is also where you want to go for questions about how to extend rebar, fill in bug reports, and so on.

The main place to go for questions is the rebar mailing list. If you need quick feedback, you can try the #rebar channel on irc.freenode.net. Be sure to check the wiki first, just to be sure you're not asking about things with well known answers.

For bug reports, roadmaps, and issues, visit the github issues page.
