Overview

Doran recognizes 2 package types, default and package. Default is a top level project containing the main proc. Packages are source libraries, and compiled as sub-projects to the default project. All projects can be a mixture of Vala, C, and C++.

Project templates are Liquid templates. If you've used Jekyll, chances are you've used Liquid. Template values are pulled from the project component.json. The json node "files" is maintained by scanning "source" during update. The "dependencies" node is maintained by doran install. The remaining nodes are initialized by doran init, and them maintained by the developer.

Run doran update when any changes are made to the project - this will re-write the CMakeFiles.txt for the project or package.

For an example of most doran features, look at https://github.com/darkoverlordofdata/valagame

start a new project

doran init myproject
cd myproject
mkdir build
./configure
cd build
make

start a new package

doran init --template package mysub
rename mysub doran-mysub
cd doran-mysub
mkdir build
./configure
cd build
make

add package to registry

  1. project name should be formated doran-project-name.
  2. pull request to add a file to the registry/remote and registry/local folders in github.com/darkoverlordofdata/doran
  3. local folders should be located as a sibling, as ../../GitHub/doran-project-name

add package to project

cd myproject
doran install mysub

link package to project

cd mysub
bower link
cd ../myproject
doran install mysub
del ./.lib/mysub
doran install --link mysub

supported platforms

Works on Windows10, Fedora 28, Ubuntu 18.04, Rasbian Stretch on rpi3

Why?

Autovala is like the best thing ever. But it doesn't work on windows, and it's depencencies and scope make it unlikely that it ever will. Doran runs on both windows and linux.

The intention was that this is a prototype. but it works too well. So I'm leaving well enough alone.

Doran packages are cmake modules shoved into bower format. Doran scans the src folder to build a file list, using it to generate a CMakeLists.txt file to drive build via cmake.

Bower? Yeah, I know. Don't use bower, but I'm not running it on a server. Doran only uses client functionality locally to manage downloads of Vala and c/c++ dependencies from github.

At this point, doran is experimental, and is just used to package my own projects.
