Development/Building

To build your own version of Strut you'll need Grunt v0.4.0 or later.

  1. Install the latest Grunt: npm install -g grunt-cli
  2. Clone Strut: git clone git://github.com/tantaman/Strut.git
  3. cd Strut
  4. Install Strut's development dependencies: npm install
  5. Run Strut: grunt server (the server runs at localhost:9000)

To make a production build of Strut run grunt build. The resulting build will be located in Strut/dist.

RELEASE NOTES

v0.5.3 - Positioning and transformations of components in edit mode now exactly match the positioning and transformations of components in the final presentation.

Contributing

Strut is composed of several bundles which provide distinct features to Strut. The set of bundles that compose Strut are defined in https://github.com/tantaman/Strut/blob/master/app/scripts/features.js

This design allows features to be added and removed from Strut just by adding or removing bundles from the list in features.js. E.g., if you wanted a build of Strut without RemoteStorage you can just remove the RemoteStorage bundle from features.js. If you didn't want any slide components for some reason then you can remove strut/slide_components/main from features.js.

Bundles contribute functionality to Strut by registering that functionality with the ServiceRegistry. You can take a look at the RemoteStorage bundle for an example: https://github.com/tantaman/Strut/blob/master/app/bundles/common/tantaman.web.remote_storage/main.js

If a service is missing Strut continues to run without the functionality provided by that service.

New development that isn't essential to the core of Strut should follow this pattern in order to keep the code modular and allow the removal of features that don't pan out or can only exist in specific environments. For example, RemoteStorage can't be loaded if Strut is being served from a file:// url.

The ServiceRegistry also allows for runtime modularity. I.e., services can be added and removed at runtime and Strut will update to reflect the current set of features & services that are isntalled. Try to keep in mind the fact that services won't necessarily be present or if they are present they might go away. This approach allows the user to add and remove plugins from 3rd parties at runtime.
