Quickstart Guide #
The easiest way to try out furo is by using
furo init with the furo-BEC container.
The container brings all the additional tools you need to generate the grpc stubs.
In this guide we will setup a furo spec project with the
furo init command.
The furo cli will then create the needed files to have a working project with a sample µType and µService definition.
Steps to setup a spec project #
Detailed explanation of the steps #
Step 1 #
This folder must be under version control with git to make your specs installable by other spec projects.
Step 3 Start the container #
If you already have an environment for proto and grpc development, you can install and use the furo cli and all the other required commands locally. The furo-BEC comes with a set of needed or useful tools.
Step 4 + 5 Run furo init #
This command will create a project structure with good default settings to begin with. All you have to enter is the repository name for your project.
If there is already a
.furofile in the folder, the init command will abort.
Step 6 Install the dependencies to other spec projects #
A spec project can use definitions from other spec projects. The created example will use the FuroBaseSpecs which comes with a lot of additional types to use (the google WellKnownTypes , google.protobuf.Any and many more).
Step 8 Start the default flow #
furo the configured default flow will be executed. This command is similar to
furo run default.
The example is configured to do the following flow steps:
deprecated: Check for used types which are declared as deprecated.
muSpec2Spec: Create / Update the specs using the muSpecs as input.
clean_dist: Configured command which starts a script to delete the dist folder.
checkImports: Check for types which are not imported, add the imports when furo can resolve it.
genMessageProtos: Create the protos for the messages.
genServiceProtos: Create the protos for the services.
buf_generate: Configured command which starts the buf generator.
gen_transcoder: Configured command which produces a go package with a grpc-gateway server mux.
genEsModule: Generates a es module with the specs which is used by eclipsefuro-web.
Project structure after running furo init #
The initialized project will have a
- .furoc file which contains the project configuration
- muspec folder with some examples
- empty specs folder
- some example scripts to use in your flows
