make-klone-project - manage a KLone based custom Debian package


make-klone-project [options] COMMAND


make-klone-project is a tool to create and manage custom webserver packages that use
KLone, a framework that integrates a web site with possibly dynamic content and a web
server into a single binary.

The aim is to let the author to focus on editing the site specific files under webapp/ and
allow creating a Debian package containing the web server and an init.d script to manage
it with dpkg-buildpackage.


make-klone-project takes one non-option argument.

create Create a new project directory, package-0.1 and seeds it with KLone's source and a
debian/ directory.

clean Remove all non-user created files and directories ie. everything but
debian/copyright, debian/changelog, debian/wsp.* and webapp/. See also the -l
option below.

Cleans the project directory as with make-klone-project clean and reseeds the KLone
source and the debian/ directory.


make-klone-project create -p myapp -m "Kari Pahula <kaol@debian.org>"
cd myapp-0.1
(edit any files that require editing, mostly in webapp/)
make-klone-project refresh
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
sudo dpkg -i ../myapp_0.1_i386.deb


Name the created web server binary as NAME. If not specified the package name is

-l Look for the project root directory in clean and refresh commands by changing the
working directory to the parent directory until they find a file named
debian/wsp.opt.maintainer in the current directory. Returns with error if none is
found. Without this option, only the current directory is checked for this file.

The upside of using this option is that make-klone-project will be agnostic about
the working directory, as long as it is somewhere inside the project tree, just
like dpkg-buildpackage. The downside is that you run a greater risk of having the
clean command cause unwanted data loss, if you happen to have an unfortunately
named file in a wrong place.

Sets the maintainer name as NAME.

Set the package name as NAME. Only effective with the create command. If not
specified, uses customkloneapp.
