Hola Fellas 🙂
My new experiment(on ubuntu platform 🙂 ) with Mozilla App Maker.
Recently “Habitat” branch patch landed in “developer” branch (main branch in app maker). This will make the running App maker locally easier and now no need to be depend on foreman and all other complex and crapy stuff 😉
All thanks to Scott Dwane (:thecount) for landing the patch 🙂
Getting Started :
This section covers how to get Appmaker running locally. The workflow is optimized for contributors.
Make sure you have nodejs, npm, and git installed.
Build the System :
Step 1. Create a root mozilla-appmaker directory:
Step 2. Forking And Cloning The Repository
Fork this repository, and then clone your fork into the mozilla-appmaker directory:
Your directory structure should look like this:
Configure remote:(If you want to, otherwise it’s not necessary now for building)
git remote add upstream https://github.com/mozilla-appmaker/appmaker.git
git fetch upstream
Environment Setup And Configuration
Install Node packages:
Configure your env:
cp sample.env .env
It’s copying set of default settings for app to use and make setting up for first time easier.
Hope you won’t get any error till here 😉
Now run the following command and you are good to go…Yay!! 🙂
You will something like this in terminal
rishav@rishav:~/mozilla-appmaker/appmaker$ node app
PUBLISH_HOST set to 192.168.42.161.xip.io:12319
