Quickly Compile a SilverStripe website

30 August 2013

When you're frequently building SilverStripe websites, you manage to create small efficiencies to make life a bit easier. To construct a SilverStripe website quickly, I have written a quick bash script that compiles the basic SilverStripe repositories into a install-ready git repository.


Create a new file called compile.sh with the code below. Then in your empty Git repository, run ./compile.sh install to build your SilverStripe site. Omitt the 'install' switch (ie ./compile.sh) if you are doing this on an existing SilverStripe repository that doesn't require installation (ie if you're deploying to a new machine or server).

compile.sh

#!/bin/bash

echo -e $COL_YELLOW CREATING CACHE FOLDER $COL_RESET

chmod 777 silverstripe-cache

# Complete
echo -e $COL_GREEN COMPILE COMPLETE $COL_RESET
