Welcome to Amoni
Amoni is a command line tool to manage local development tasks for an Anvil application.
Amoni gives you:
A preconfigured postgresql server running in a docker container
A preconfigured Anvil application server running in a docker container
Simple commands to start and stop those servers
A preconfigured docker container to run your test suite
Convenient access to the anvil error log
Your app available in your browser at port 3030 on your local machine
Your database server available on port 5432 on your local machine
Commands to fetch an app from a remote repository and add it to your project either as the main app or as a dependency
Stub files so that your autocompleter can see the tables available in your app
So your workflow becomes:
amoni init cd <my_new_amoni_project_directory> amoni start >>> Wait a while the first time while the server images download >>> Point my browser at http://localhost:3030 >>> Marvel at how simple that was amoni test >>> Sigh with relief at those lovely passing tests amoni stop >>> Sup coffee (or beverage of choice)
Why the Name?
It’s Greek for anvil and the idea for this library was conceived on a sunny veranda on the island of Κέρκυρα (Corfu).
