slyft

command line client to slyft-server

Run slyft

To run slyft, fetch the appropriate release zip file, extract and run:

$ ./slyft

For a comprehensive documentation, please see www.slyft.io/docs

Build slyft

Before you begin, make sure you have Golang and Node.js installed. For the Go sources to build successfully, you also need $GOPATH and $GOBIN to be set (for this example, $GOPATH is set to ~/golang):

 $ cd
~$ mkdir -p golang/bin
~$ export GOPATH=~/golang
~$ export GOBIN=$GOPATH/bin

Then clone the repo to $GOPATH/src/github.com/thingforward/slyft-cli. That done, you can build slyft as follows:

$ sudo npm install --global gulp-cli
$ npm install 
$ gulp

This will create a binary for your platform in the folder bin and a zipped archive (e.g. dist/slyft-0.1.0-darwin_1bb262da570bff653a8d8be9e785fb40.zip) in the folder dist. You can try it by running bin/slyft or (on Windows) bin\slyft.exe.

What's Gulp doing here? It fetches any missing Go dependencies, formats and vets the source, builds the binary, and runs the tests.

You can also call gulp build (same as the default task), gulp test (just run the tests), gulp watch (watch source files and trigger builds when they change) individually if you prefer.

If you find that gulp is not recognised (or you had to skip the first step because sudo is not available), you can call the local copy of gulp installed by npm directly:

$ node node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js

Ubuntu

There is a Debian naming conflict where the package manager installs nodejs but gulp expects the executable to be called node (that being the standard name of the Node.js binary).

To solve this problem, either install nodejs-legacy (which adds a symlink from /usr/bin/nodejs to /usr/bin/node) or call the local gulp instance directly using nodejs not node:

$ nodejs node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js

Docker

Use the Dockerfile to build the slyft client, use it from within a container, or copy it over to the host:

$ docker build -t slyft-cli .
(...)

$ docker run slyft-cli

Usage: Slyft [OPTIONS] COMMAND [arg...]
(...)

$ docker run -v $PWD:/tmpdist slyft-cli /bin/sh -c 'cp *.zip /tmpdist'
$ ls *.zip
slyft-0.1.1-debian-8.6_d80891d37976c3106093b391445cec40.zip

Windows

On Windows, be sure to build the program from Git Bash or a similar, unixy command prompt. gofmt in particular expects tools such as diff to be available.

When submitting pull requests, consider disabling Git's auto-detection for line endings:

git config --global core.autocrlf false

Avoiding crlf is important as gofmt standardises on Unix line endings.

If you're not on Windows, you may wish to cross-compile a Windows binary by entering:

$ gulp build-win32
