How to build and install unstable Mibew 2.0 from scratch as of 2014-05-06
Warning! This tutorial is outdated! Instead, one should take a look into the appropriate section of the brief of the project at Github.
Important! This instruction intended for developers. One should understand that Mibew Messenger 2.0 is not ready for end users. Moreover, it’s not ready for testers too.
Given instruction describes the process of building and installation of Mibew Messenger 2.0 on a VPS running GNU/Linux.
The goal is to install Mibew Messenger 2.0 into the
some_directory directory. Also we’ll use
/tmp/ directory for, well, temporary tasks.
We’ll skip the output of all commands to make the text more readable. Just remember that there should be no warnings or errors at all.
Required pre-installed tools
To build Mibew Messenger 2.0 you will need:
We’ll omit the process of installation of this utilities pretending that they are already installed and available in the system.
Step 1: Get Mibew 2.0
You can get Mibew Messenger 2.0 from the official repository. All you need to do is to download the snapshot of the actual state of the master branch.
$ cd /tmp/ $ wget https://github.com/Mibew/mibew/archive/master.tar.gz $ tar xzf master
Please, note that if you want to take a part in the development process, you should fork the official repository, clone it, and then make use of the cloned code tree.
Step 2: Prepare environment
This (and only this) step should be taken as a
Though it is possible to avoid the need of superuser permissions, it will require some additional actions, so we’ll follow the simple way.
Get and set up the Closure compiler.
# mkdir /opt/closure # cd /opt/closure # wget http://dl.google.com/closure-compiler/compiler-latest.tar.gz # tar xzf compiler-latest.tar.gz
Then get and set up the handlebars 1.3.0 npm package.
# npm install email@example.com -g
Step 3: Build Mibew Messenger
Actually, all you need to do at this step is to run ant in the
src/ subdirectory of the code tree of Mibew.
$ cd /tmp/mibew-master/src/ $ ant
Step 4: Get third party libraries
Download and use Composer to fetch all needed third party libraries.
$ cd /tmp/mibew-master/src/ $ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php -d 'suhosin.executor.include.whitelist = phar' $ php -d 'suhosin.executor.include.whitelist = phar' composer.phar install
Step 5: Install Mibew
Create an empty
package file in the
$ touch /tmp/mibew-master/src/mibew/install/package
Create and modify configuration for the future Mibew installation using template configuration.
$ cd /tmp/mibew-master/src/mibew/libs/ $ cp default_config.php config.php $ vim config.php
Place the Mibew Messenger code into the destination directory.
$ cp -r /tmp/mibew-master/src/mibew some_directory
And finally visit
http://your_domain/your_mibew_path/install/ to complete the installation.
