In this chapter we will see how to prepare the development environment on Linux operating systems for working with Axelor Open Platform sources.
Install OpenJDK 8 and make sure JDK command line tools are in your path.
If you use distribution provided OpenJDK, they are already available in
PATH otherwise do this:
$ export JAVA_HOME=/path/to/jdk $ export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
Install PostgreSQL from your Linux distribution’s package repositories.
For ubuntu, you can do this:
$ sudo apt-get install postgresql
Download the latest distribution package from https://github.com/axelor/axelor-development-kit/releases and extract the package somewhere and set following environment variables.
$ export AXELOR_HOME=/path/to/axelor-adk $ export PATH=$AXELOR_HOME/bin:$PATH
or you can build from the latest source like this:
$ git clone https://github.com/axelor/axelor-development-kit.git $ cd axelor-development-kit $ ./gradlew installDist
$ export AXELOR_HOME=/path/to/axelor-development-kit/build/install/axelor-development-kit $ export PATH=$AXELOR_HOME/bin:$PATH
You should have a special command `axelor' in your path now. Just try issuing following command on the terminal:
$ axelor --help
You should see output something like this:
Usage: axelor [--help] [--new <NAME>] Run the interactive shell or create a new axelor project. -h, --help show this help and exit -v, --version display version information --new <NAME> create a new application project
You can also execute shell commands directly like:
$ axelor help $ axelor help run $ axelor clean $ axelor build $ axelor run -p 8000
The command line utility can also be used in interactive mode where the utility runs in a special shell from where you can issue various commands.
