Build fails when using reposearch-master.zip from github
Today I downloaded the file
reposearch-master.zipfrom https://github.com/webdsl/reposearch (to a “headless” Amazon AWX EC2 server running Debian Wheezy, being accessed remotely from my laptop using Putty / SSH - ie, using the command line in Linux, and not using Eclipse).
Then when I did:
webdsl build deploy
the build failed, with the following error message:
File does not exist:
Indeed, this file is missing. In face, the entire directory
is empty in the expanded zip file on my machine.
elibpage on gitbub https://github.com/webdsl/reposearch/tree/master/elib the directory
elib-boostrapredirects to another repository, belonging to the webdsl repository:
This redirection also occurs for yellowgrass’s
Due to this redirection, the files in directory
are not included in the reposearch project (nor in the yellowgrass project).
Without the files in this directory, the build of course fails.
Why are these files missing?
Why do the
elibdirectories for reposearch and yellowgrass redirect to the webdesl directory?
How can these directories be downloaded so that they can be included in the project, so that it will build?
I am eager to start using WebDSL. It is one of the most important developments to happen in web application programming. The language itself is well-designed, but due to unresolved build, deploy and configure problems outside the language, there does not seem to be a straightforward way for a beginner to get one of these sample applications up and running.
Thank you for any help.Submitted by Stefan on 14 December 2014 at 08:01
Elib is a Git submodule, try
git clone https://github.com/webdsl/reposearch.git cd reposearch git submodule update --init
