Provisioning for Development

Ubuntu 14.04

This shows how to set up a build and test environment in Ubuntu 14.04.

These instructions will probably work for any Ubuntu release from 14.04 onward. They assume a basic installation, as, for instance, from the HashiCorp ubuntu/trusty64 image.

Add nodejs to the sources so it can be installed

wget -qO- | sudo bash -

Install required packages (you may want to also include cmake-curses-gui for convenience in configuring CMake options)

sudo apt-get install --yes \
    cmake \
    firefox \
    imagemagick \
    git \
    libjpeg8-dev \
    libpango1.0-dev \
    mesa-utils \
    nodejs \
    python-pip \

Install node-gyp, which is required to build the node canvas module

sudo npm install -g node-gyp-install && /usr/lib/node_modules/node-gyp-install/bin.js

Checkout the GeoJS source and change to the source directory

git clone
cd geojs

Install node modules

npm install

Build GeoJS and run some basic tests

npm run build
npm run lint
npm run test

Note that some of the tests measure speed, and therefore may fail if you are running on slow hardware or in a limited virtual machine.

Use CMake to create additional tests and make to download test data

cmake .

Run the headless WebGL tests

xvfb-run -s '-ac -screen 0 1280x1024x24' ctest -VV -R ffheadless

Run all tests

xvfb-run -s '-ac -screen 0 1280x1024x24' ctest --output-on-failure

Install python packages

pip install --user girder-client

Generate new baseline images for the headless WebGL tests

python test/ --xvfb --generate --upload --verbose
