Clone Bigtop repo
You can do it either from
official Apache Bigtop repo
- or from Github mirror (see https://github.com/apache/bigtop)
Setting up development environment from scratch:
Make sure you have sudo and a suitable java runtime installed. Bootstrap the environment using the provided Gradle wrapper script
% ./gradlew toolchain
Using pre-built Docker images (Bigtop-1.0)
Another way is to run inside of the pre-built Docker images that we are using for CI builds. The work isn't fully wrapped-up, but you can start using these containers immediately as explained in this BIGTOP-1323 comment
As per docker.com registry the name bigtop/slaves with following tags are available for the Bigtop-1.0 branch
which you can run by (as an example)
$ docker run -v `pwd`:/ws bigtop/slaves:ubuntu-14.04 bash -l -c 'cd /ws ; gradle bigtop-jsvc-pkg'
which will download the image, create an instance of the container and run the build.
