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)
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
$ node node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js
There is a Debian naming conflict where the package manager installs
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/node) or call the local gulp instance directly using
$ nodejs node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js
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
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
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
