Learn uv for fun and profit, a self guided workshop to the library that powers Node.js.
Before You Start
Read the learnuv gitbook which explains some libuv and related C language concepts that will help you complete the exercises.
Requires Python 2.6 or 2.7 to be installed.
If python is not in your path set the environment variable
PYTHON to its
location. For example on Windows:
git clone https://github.com/thlorenz/learnuv && cd learnuv npm install
learnuv comes with build commands that you can use instead of the manual steps explained further below.
- ./learnuv ninja
Compile your sources with ninja, stored inside
- ./learnuv make
Compile your sources with make, stored inside
- ./learnuv xcode
Generate a learnuv Xcode project, named
Ninja and Make do not work on windows except via cygwin.
Highly recommended since it builds faster than any of the other options, so get ninja and do:
./gyp_learnuv.py -f ninja ninja -C out/Debug ./out/Debug/01_system_info
Works on Linux and OSX.
./gyp_learnuv.py -f make make -C out ./out/Debug/01_system_info
Works on OSX only. Highly recommended to ease debugging and code navigation.
./gyp_learnuv.py -f xcode open learnuv.xcodeproj
Works on Windows only. TODO need to adapt vcbuild.bat.
