Once you build your first Stacki frontend you can now start working with the source code. All development on Stacki is assumed to be done on a Stacki Frontend that you have root access on. This page walks you through the steps required to start developing on the code.
Log into your Frontend and checkout the repository somewhere in /export (its a large repo).
# mkdir /export/src # cd /export/src # git clone email@example.com:StackIQ/stacki.git
If you have an existing repository, you should also pull the latest code from the develop branch.
These instructions assume you have commit access to the Stacki/stacki.git repository, if you do not please fork the repository first, and then clone from your fork.
# cd /export/src/stacki # git pull
Building Stacki requires several packages not included in the base install of the frontend, so we must configure yum to have access to the complete and updated CentOS packages. Create the following two files:
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/centos.repo [centos] name=centos baseurl=http://mirror.lax.hugeserver.com/centos/6/os/x86_64 assumeyes=1
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/updates.repo [updates] name=updates baseurl=http://mirror.lax.hugeserver.com/centos/6/updates/x86_64 assumeyes=1
After these files are in place clean out the yum cache with:
yum clean all
Now with access to any missing RPMs we can prepare to compile the entire Stacki pallet by bootstrapping it.
# cd /export/src/stacki # make bootstrap # exit
exit command which will log you out of the hosts. Now when you log back in your environment will be setup correctly to compile Stacki.
# cd /export/src/stacki # make
This will take a long time, there is a lot of software to build. When done you can verify the build with:
# make manifest-check
This will report any packages that failed to build.
If you’ve made changes that you want to share with all of Stacki send a pull request to StackIQ/stacki.
