When managing smaller GIT based projects I find it helpful to opt for custom build scripts rather than having to deal with the overhead of setting up proper Jenkins (or-likewise) runtime environments.
In order to deal with this need I’ve created a simple build script that creates a compressed TAR file based on committed files.
So, here it is:
#!/bin/sh # # REQUIREMENTS: # - git # - php # - sed # - xargs # - tar # #(absolute) path to PHP, or simply 'php' if it is in the PATH PHP_PATH="php" #release number should be read from config/base.php PHP_REQUIRE="require('$(pwd)/config/base.php');" RELEASE_NUMBER=`$PHP_PATH -r "$PHP_REQUIRE echo MY_VERSION;"` #hold list of files to be added to release tar.gz TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST=$(pwd)/TMP_RELEASE_INCLUDE #get list of git's tracked files git ls-files > $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST #filter only SRC directory sed -i '/^src./!d' $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST #manually include additional folders of your choice sed -i '/^src\/js\/folder1/d' $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST sed -i '/^src\/js\/folder2/d' $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST #add RELEASE directory only `echo "src/js/release/$RELEASE_NUMBER" >> $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST` # enclose lines in "" to enable spaces in file and folder names sed -i 's/^/"/g' $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST sed -i 's/$/"/g' $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST #create compresse TAR cat $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST | xargs tar czf release_$RELEASE_NUMBER.tar.gz #clean up rm $TMP_SRC_FILE_LIST
That’s it – Feel free to adjust it to your needs.
