App Helper is a docker compose application development helper utility.
There are a few ways in which you can install App.
This is the original concept as it was created to work with laravel projects however added more generic methods and tools, so we can use it in any project.
Install using composer, simply run the following command:
composer reuqire --dev jlisher/app-helper # run the install script ./vendor/bin/app.sh install
While nodejs has the nvm project, which is nice, it doesn't help when you are creating container based applications where you have multiple containers running different versions of nodejs. For this reason we have added support for npm based installations and running nodejs and npm within the container.
Installing using npm, simply run the following command:
npm install -D jlisher-app-helper
You can use git to install and update the utility.
Simply clone the repo and run the
git clone https://github.com/jlisher/app-helper.git # cd into your project directory cd /path/to/your/project # run the installation ./path/to/app-helper/src/app.sh install
/path/to/app-helper/ with your real path to the app-helper files
Simply download the files and place them in a directory within your application directory.
Simply download the files and run:
/path/to/app-helper/ with your real path to the app-helper files,
/path/to/your/project with your project directory.
During installation, App Helper append some lines to the
.bashrc file in your project root directory.
.bashrc file is there to offer some handy shortcuts and set some environment variables, which are required for the
app helper script.
To make your life easier simply source the
.bashrc file whenever you want to use the functionality. This only needs to
be performed once per a terminal session.
