"griffon create-app" in NetBeans IDE
By Geertjan-Oracle on May 28, 2009
- Specify that you want to create a new Griffon application:
- Define a name and a place to store it:
Note: The IDE automatically picks up "GRIFFON_HOME", if you have defined it. If you haven't defined it, you can't continue with the next step (the "Finish" above is then greyed out), so that you have to click the "Configure" button above, which puts you into the Options window shown yesterday, where you then need to define the location of your Griffon distribution.
- Then the IDE creates the application, calling "griffon create-app", using the Groovy script in the Griffon distribution, and opens the application thusly created into the IDE. Next, you can simply run the application, which means that you get the IDE to call "griffon run-app":
- Or open one of the samples from the Griffon distribution and run it:
However, still too early to make any kind of distribution available. Need to backtrack a bit and make it possible again to create Grails applications as well. Plus, the generation of Griffon artifacts doesn't work at the moment.
In other news. Did a lot of tweeting today. Follow me here, many updates can be expected relating to Griffon support in the IDE: https://twitter.com/GeertjanW
