A Note About Contributions to the Rust Libraries
When contributing to the Rust libraries
tauri-updater; you will want to setup an environment for RLS (the Rust Language Server). In the Tauri root directory, there is a
.scripts folder that contains a set of scripts to automate adding a couple temporary environment variables to your shell/terminal. These environment variables point to directories in the test fixture which will prevent RLS from crashing on compile-time. This is a necessary step for setting up a development environment for Tauri's Rust libraries.
- Navigate to the Tauri Root directory.
- Execute a script based on your Operating System from this folder:
.scripts/init_env.batfor Windows Cmd,
.scripts/init_env.ps1for Windows Powershell,
. .scripts/init_env.shfor Linux/macOS bash (note the first
.in this command).
- Open your text editor/IDE from this shell/terminal.
Hands On Example
Let's make a new example. That's a great way to learn. We are going to assume you are on a nixy type of environment like Linux or macOS and have all of your development dependencies like rust and node already sorted out.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tauri-apps/tauri.git
mkdir ../../examples/vanillajs && cd "$_"
"tauri:source": "node ../../../cli/tauri.js/bin/tauri",
path = "../../../../core/tauri"
features = [ "all-api" ]
