Getting started

Open source server vs commercial app

In order to fund further development of RockScript, we are building a commercial product called the RockScript App. The RockScript App includes

For now, early access versions are free, but require registration.

Download RockScript App
(Free, early access version)

Run the downloaded jar file with

java -jar rockscript-app.jar examples

The examples argument will ensure that a couple of example scripts and executions are initialized when the server starts.

Then open http://localhost:3652/

Limitation: Bear in mind that for now, the server only has an in-memory event store. So each time you reboot the server, it looses all it’s scripts and script executions.

Instructions to build the open source server

To run the server and the command line interface (CLI)

To build RockScript

Clone the rockscript repo

git clone git@github.com:rockscript/rockscript.git

Will create a folder called rockscript.

Build rockscript.jar and rockscript-cli.jar

Open a terminal in the rockscript root folder and run

mvn -Pizza clean install

You eventually should see output like

[INFO] rockscript-parent .................................. SUCCESS [  0.370 s]
[INFO] rockscript-gson .................................... SUCCESS [  2.752 s]
[INFO] rockscript-http .................................... SUCCESS [  0.439 s]
[INFO] rockscript ......................................... SUCCESS [ 10.176 s]
[INFO] rockscript-server .................................. SUCCESS [  6.842 s]
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] BUILD SUCCESS

That means you have successfully created

Starting the RockScript server

Start the RockScript server with

java -jar rockscript-server/target/rockscript.jar

You should see output like this

 ____            _     ____            _       _    
|  _ \ ___   ___| | __/ ___|  ___ _ __(_)_ __ | |_

                                        |_|         
Server started on port 3652

Limitation: Bear in mind that for now, the server only has an in-memory event store. So each time you reboot the server, it looses all it’s scripts and script executions.

To check that you have the server running, you can just check open the documentation that is included in the server. Point your browser to http://localhost:3652/

Next, take tutorial and get your first script running.
