Assumes guidelines:


Laptop setup

Development environment setup:

  • java
  • maven
  • git/ stash
  • Bitbucket
  • IntelliJ (Community-only)

Git issues on Mac:

  • Download git - if not installed:
    • There is an issue where your git installation may be overridden by the MacOS (Xcode) veneer. To overcome this:
      • Don't bother trying to mv /usr/bin/git /usr/bin/git/system - as the Mac security does not permit this (even as root)
      • Just confirm your git installation is working and alias it:
      • See below:

        overriding MacOS git veneer
        # git command line fails after install - even if found on $PATH ok
        10:22:00 3 $ which git
        10:22:37 4 $ git
        xcode-select: note: no developer tools were found at '/Applications/', requesting install. Choose an option in the dialog to download the command line developer tools.
        # installation fine though
        10:22:40 5 $ /usr/local/bin/git
        usage: git [--version] [--help] [-C <path>] [-c name=value]
                   [--exec-path[=<path>]] [--html-path] [--man-path] [--info-path] ...
        # sudo mv MacOS git not permitted - even logged in as root!
        sudo mv /usr/bin/git /usr/bin/git-system
        mv: rename /usr/bin/git to /usr/bin/git-system: Operation not permitted
        # fix is to alias - add to ~/.bash_profile
        alias git=/usr/local/bin/alias
        10:34:30 23 $ git
        usage: git [--version] [--help] [-C <path>] [-c name=value]
                   [--exec-path[=<path>]] [--html-path] [--man-path] [--info-path] ...

Codebase setup

IG git repos:

For each desired repo, fork then clone...

  • Instructions:
    • Create your own ssh key (ssh-keygen)
    • From the master repo, fork it:

      • Forking it allows you to have your own copy of the repo.

    • Clone your forked repo on your laptop - with command line or with SourceTree:

      • e.g. git clone ssh URL of your new forked repo

        clone your repo
        # generate ssh key
        10:10:56 132 $ ssh-keygen
        Generating public/private rsa key pair.
        Enter file in which to save the key (/Users/wayne.morrison/.ssh/id_rsa): 
        Created directory '/Users/wayne.morrison/.ssh'.
        Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): 
        Enter same passphrase again: 
        Your identification has been saved in /Users/wayne.morrison/.ssh/id_rsa.
        Your public key has been saved in /Users/wayne.morrison/.ssh/
        # navigate to your forked repo and select clone to reveal the URL (use the ssh URL)
        # you may need to navigate to your repo via your user profile
        10:35:17 33 $ pwd
        10:35:18 35 $ git clone ssh://
        Cloning into 'openig'...

Pyforge setup

Pyforge is a python-based functional testing framework used by IG QA. It is also very useful in quickly configuring an environment representing a particular use-case.

It may not be immediately useful to you. To install and configure see Pyforge Installation Guide.
