Source path and lib folders
Let’s take a look at what sam tells us when launching it.
sam version 0.2.0 Usage: sam [update|get|status|promote] Commands * update: update sam's grimoir of formulas * get [USEFILE]: clone and/or pull all dependencies * status [USEFILE]: display short git status of all dependencies * promote [USEFILE]: replace read-only github url with a read-write one for given use file * clone [--no-deps] [REPONAME]: clone a repository by its formula name Note: All USEFILE arguments are optional. By default, the first .use file of the current directory is used Copyleft 2013 Amos Wenger aka @nddrylliog
Changes to “clone”
One thing that’s new is that
sam clone will now also clone
dependencies by default. So if you do
sam clone dye by example,
you’ll get a copy of my graphics framework and all its dependencies.
In my case, because I already have dye, it’ll only update:
$ sam clone dye [dye:master] Repository /Users/amos/Dev/dye exists already. Pulling... > Current branch master is up to date. [sdl2:master] (<= dye) > Current branch master is up to date. [stb-image:master] (<= dye) > Current branch master is up to date. [freetype2:master] (<= dye) > Current branch master is up to date. [deadlogger:master] (<= dye) > Current branch master is up to date.
If you want to only clone or update one the formula you specify
and none of its dependencies, you can use the
Changes to “update”
sam update only updated its library of formulas
(also called grimoir). Now it also recompiles it. It’s still
pretty fast though:
$ sam update Pulling repository /Users/amos/Dev/sam > Current branch master is up to date. Recompiling sam > Cleaning up outpath and .libs > Build order: [sam, sdk] > [ OK ]
This takes around 6s on my system - and most of that is spent waiting for SSL negotiation with GitHub!
So there you have it, from now on you’ll be able to
to keep both your grimoir up-to-date and sam itself.
