I've recently been tweeting a few things regarding v8:
v8 code cleanup is in progress and we would love your help! A lot of the cleanup is reasonably easy to do and it's actually very fun/satisfying seeing all that old legacy/deprecated/obsolete code finally being deleted :)
We've got quite a few responses on Twitter from folks mentioning they would like to help out so here's some info on how/where to start. I haven't documented every tiny thing that we need to cleanup in the codebase, a lot of the cleanup is discovered when other cleanup is done.
If you discover more code that should be removed/migrated, that is awesome! Just create an issue for it with details and let us know :)
Any questions/comments/suggestions about this process, please reply below.
Thanks Shannon. How should we assign a task to ourselves or would it be just a case of pick any task you'd like? I don't want to step on any ones toes if they've already started a task.
I've just added another column to issues called "Contributor", this can be assigned from HQ members and then we'll tag the issue accordingly. So the best way to 'claim' an issue is to just comment on it and say "I'll do this!" :)
I'll update the post above with more instructions
Awesome! First card picked up :D
Which branch should we start from ? Is that dev-v8 ?
Yup! Make sure when submitting PRs that you target them to the dev-v8 branch too.
Is the build.bat supposed to work as usual for building Umbraco so one can check, which changes have been done? I have some trouble getting the build to succeed...so just wondering if it's supposed to be working or if it's expected to currently break due to the changes being made :) - I'm on the dev-v8 branch.
Prob not, the v8 is VERY volatile. I haven't even tried to run the build.bat file. Currently you just need to use Visual Studio. Open the solution and start it, if it builds and works it's fine.
Also: build.bat doesn't do all that much magic, the most important 2 steps: it runs BuildBelle.bat (which can be avoided if you have grunt, just run grunt build in src/Umbraco.Web.UI.Client and then it runs the Visual Studio build, as said, that can be done from VS.
The rest of the build is packaging up which will definitely fail when a lot of projects are missing.
Finally: we ignore (don't run) the v8 build on AppVeyor as so much is changing and will be changing, it doesn't make much sense to keep the build running when it's still in flux a lot.
Okay, as an update, I had to try. build.bat doesn't build the NuGets but it builds the zip file, which installs too. Just don't try to install Fanoe (or probably any starter kit).
Update2: I fixed the NuGet build so it should build completely from build.bat for now.. until the next DLL gets removed ;-)
Had some weird issue on my main machine - Saw the same weird issue on the laptop when I made 1st build on it but after installing the targetting stuff for .net4.6.1 and building again it worked...did the same on main machine but it keeps failing even though the setup seems to be identical...I'm probably missing something on it...the main thing is that I got it to work afterall :)
PR is submitted too - yay!
is working on a reply...
