DESCRIPTION:

SproutCore is a platform for building native look-and-feel applications on the web. This Ruby library includes a copy of the SproutCore JavaScript framework as well as a Ruby-based build system called Abbot.

Abbot is a build system for creating static web content. You can supply Abbot with a collection of JavaScript, HTML, CSS and image files and it will combine the files into a bundle that are optimized for efficient, cached deliver directly from your server or using a CDN.

Some of the benefits of using Abbot versus assembling your own content include:

* Easy maintenance.  Organize your source content in a way that is useful for 
  you without impacting performance on loaded apps.

* Automatically versioned URLs. Serve content with long expiration dates
  while Abbot handles the cache invalidation for you.

* Dependency management.  Divide your code into frameworks; load 3rd party
  libraries.  Abbot will make sure everything loads in the correct order.

* Packing.  Combines JavaScript and CSS into single files to minimize the
  number of resources you download for each page.

Although Abbot is intended primarily for building Web applications that use the SproutCore JavaScript framework, you can also use it to efficiently build any kind of static web content, even if SproutCore is not involved.

Abbot can be used both directly from the command line or as a ruby library.

USING ABBOT WITH SPROUTCORE:

This gem includes both the Abbot build tools and a copy of the SproutCore JavaScript framework. You can use built-in commands to create, develop, build, and deploy SproutCore-based applications.

KNOWN LIMITATIONS:

  • Currently does not support sites using relative-links. You must specify the absolute path you expect built targets to be hosted as.

SYNOPSIS:

To create a new project:

sc-init my_app

To test said project:

cd my_app
sc-server
open http://localhost:4020/my_app (in web browser)

Write code, refresh, debug. Once you are ready to deploy, build your static output using:

cd my_app
sc-build my_app -rc

Copy the resulting files found in my_app/tmp/build to your server and you are deployed!
