BBB Dev Env Alias


Aliases in Ubuntu make your life easier, all you need is just enter alias once and than refer to it from anywhere. It saves time!

How to set up alias ?

Open Terminal and run the command:

sudo gedit ./~bashrc

It will open the file where the alias should be located.

For developing with Big blue Button it would be good to have at least following alias :

Alias List

alias bbb-aps-compile='cd /home/firstuser/dev/source/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton-apps; gradle war deploy'

alias bbb-red5-start='cd /usr/share/red5/ ;sudo -u red5 ./ '

alias bbb-red5-stop=' sudo /etc/init.d/red5 stop'

alias fullcompile='cd /home/firstuser/dev/source/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton-client; ant; compile PollingModule; sudo bbb-conf --clean'

alias bbb-compile-client='cd /home/firstuser/dev/source/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton-client; ant modules';

How to use Aliases ?

Append those lines, save file and than use command:

source ./~bashrc

Your aliases are added to the system. Test them by typing 'bbb-compile-client' for example from anywhere in terminal.

Please edit the aliases list, so it would be easier for all of us to be on the same track.
