plainbox-qml-shell (1)


plainbox-qml-shell [-h] [--version] [-v] [-D] [-C] [-T LOGGER] [-P] [-I]


Runs specified file as it would be a plainbox’ qml job. Returns 0 if job returned ‘pass’, 1 if job returned ‘fail’, or other value in case of an error.

This command runs qml job provided by specified file.

General purpose of this command is to make development of qml-native jobs faster, by making it easier to test qml file(s) that constitute to job without resorting to installation of provider and running plainbox run. Typical approach to the development of new qml job would be as follows: - have an idea for a job - create a qml file in Ubuntu-SDK or Your Favourite Editor - hack on the file and iterate using qmlscene (or use plainbox-qml-shell immediately if you start with next point) - make it conformant to plainbox qml-native API described in CEP-5 (calling test-done at the end) - copy qml file over to data dir of a provider and add a job unit to it


Positional arguments:

qml file with job to be run
