These are my notes on provisioning Windows (W7PRO, SP1 x64) for working on the open source RiseVision stuff.
Here’s where the RiseVision stuff lives on GitHub. https://github.com/Rise-Vision
Here are Donna Peplinski’s instructions for provisioning your machine.
- Get GIT.
- Get node.js from http:://nodejs.org/ and install it. Use the Windows binary. Run a simple node.js acceptance test according to these instructions.
- Open up a power shell or cmd and type
npm install -g bowerto get the Bower Package Manager. As it runs
npmannounces the installation of a lot of dependent packages.
npm install -g gulpto get the Gulp build manager. As it runs
npmannounces some more dependent packages.
That’s the stuff you need.
To download and build the stock open-source calendar widget, do this sequence of commands in a git-enabled powershell.
git clone https://github.com/Rise-Vision/widget-google-calendar.git cd widget-google-calendar npm install bower install gulp build
The npm and bower steps chatter a lot, with some deprecation warnings, etc.
