Project source accessible in github at https://github.com/heralight/lift_basic_runmode
- Lift 2.5-M3
- sbt-runMode (development, production)
- jquery 1.8.3
- conditional runMode snippet
- Twitter Bootstrap included to illustrate the use of sbt shell tasks
Optimize build process in development and production by:
- conditional compilation js and style files depending on mode configuration.
- concat file or not
- compress file or not
- simplify debugging by separating files in development mode.
- test production output easily
- Add custom sbt task like bash script and link to actions
Uses sbt-plugins plugins.
The current version 0.6-M1 does not work properly with jetty v8. To fix this problem, you can use my fork.
In a temp directory git clone git://github.com/heralight/sbt-plugins.git cd sbt-plugin clean-cache publish-local
css and less in main/css js, coffeescript, template in main/js
These directories will be filtered and copied to resourceManaged and include in webappResources.
main js and css name : “app”
if filename contains (rules in build.sbt)
- .p. == production
- .d. == development
- .a. == add to output directory, will be included in webAppRessources path and war package.(a.p.xxx, a.d.xxx, a.xxx)
- app.a.d.css => main css file in development and this file will be included to output directory.
- app.a.p.js => main js file in production and this file will be included to output directory.
- app-part.less => not parsed if not import in any “a” file.
