Remote Compiler Infrastucture

asked 2014-03-03 03:14:17 +0300

On the Nokia old days, we have the possibility to leverage remote compiler infrastructure (dedicated for native apps, Qt-based, and the plugin for Qt Creator is there https://qt.gitorious.org/qt-creator/wcc-qt-creator/source/9494352abf37967ef60f3f204bd14a24de5b131a: yet not updated for quite some times). The availability of remote compiler infrastructure (with some APIs via http) opens opportunities to developers to leverage the possibilities, e.g. create a web-based code editor dan previewer then directly compiles the code to native apps, without requiring the developers to download the SDK. I hope Jolla, will again consider to provide, or at least prepare some specification to deploy the SDK as a service.

  • An attempt of using the old infrastructure, by creating a module in nodejs, so others can build a service-based app (or any others) on top of it (but unfortunately the infrastructure is taken down and the login mechanism change a lot):

There is the Mer OBS instance, which has a Sailfish target that can be used to build Sailfish application and libraries (you look for a sailfish application on it to see how it works).

Not sure how feasible it would be to use it for ad-hoc code compilation though.
