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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
(edit any files that require editing, mostly in webapp/)
sudo dpkg -i ../myapp_0.1_i386.deb
Name the created web server binary as NAME. If not specified
the package name is used.
-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
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.
A custom description for the package. Should be formatted like
the corresponding field in the debian/control file.
The options set in prior calls to make-klone-project.
The user specified site tree, to be imported as the site by
Your web server will be run as a root, so you will need to use either
allow_root or uid and gid options in your etc/kloned.conf.
