Repository Template

Enable creators of repositories to choose a template repository upon initialization

Enable creators of repositories to choose a template repository upon initialization. Repositories with a specific configuration file are marked as templates and will be automatically detected by SCM-Manager.

Build and testing

The plugin can be compiled and packaged with the normal maven lifecycle:

  • clean - mvn clean - removes the target directory, can be combined with other phases
  • compile - mvn compile - compiles Java code and creates the ui bundle
  • test - mvn test - executes test for Java and JavaScript
  • install - mvn install - installs the plugin (smp and jar) in the local maven repository
  • package - mvn package - creates the final plugin bundle (smp package) in the target folder
  • deploy - mvn deploy - deploys the plugin (smp and jar) to the configured remote repository

For the development and testing the serve lifecycle of the plugin can be used:

  • run - mvn run - starts scm-manager with the plugin pre installed.

If the plugin was started with mvn run, the default browser of the os should be automatically opened. If the browser does not start automatically, start it manually and go to http://localhost:8081/scm.

In this mode each change to web files (src/main/js or src/main/webapp), should trigger a reload of the browser with the made changes. If you compile a class (e.g.: with your IDE from src/main/java to target/classes), the SCM-Manager context will restart automatically. So you can see your changes without restarting the server.

  1. node_modules/: This directory contains all of the modules of code that your project depends on (npm packages) are automatically installed.
  2. src/: This directory will contain all of the code related to what you see or not. src is a convention for “source code”.

    1. main/

      2. js/: This directory contains the JavaScript code for the web ui, inclusive unit tests: suffixed with .test.ts
      3. resources/: This directory contains the the classpath resources.
    2. test/

      1. java/: This directory contains the Java unit tests.
      2. resources/: This directory contains classpath resources for unit tests.
    3. target/: This is the build directory.
  3. .editorconfig: This is a configuration file for your editor using EditorConfig. The file specifies a style that IDEs use for code.
  4. .gitignore: This file tells git which files it should not track / not maintain a version history for.
  5. All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file.
  6. LICENSE: This project is licensed under the MIT license.
  7. package.json: Here you can find the dependency/build configuration and dependencies for the frontend.
  8. pom.xml: Maven configuration, which also includes things like metadata.
