[RAPT][For nerds] Download and install RAPT from CLI

#1 Post by Amethysts » Mon Jan 25, 2021 10:16 am

Hello guys,

My goal is to set up a Continuous Deployment for my Android Ren'Py game.

Basically, I have these 2 fantastic articles :
- Build distributions from a VM - https://excaliburzero.github.io/blog/20 ... -game.html
- Upload bundle to Play Store - https://medium.com/@niraj_prajapati/aut ... de7801c36

So I can lint and build distributions from my GitHub runner -yay !

I know how to build android distribution when RAPT is already installed.

But one thing is missing here : how to download and install RAPT from CLI ? I can't get any documentation about it online.

Can someone help me ?

You would just download it from the appropriate page on renpy.org and unzip it.

What's more, please don't continually downlad things from renpy.org in continuous integration like that - that's somewhat abusive of server resources.

Thank you very much!

I will try to cache the files so that renpy servers are not spammed. Just to warn you: someone made a github action for building and linting ren'py projects, downloading ren'py continuously. You may want to raise an issue on their github page.

I'll probably make a cookbook if I manage to make something clean.
