Packaging JShydra - Stage 1

It's been a while since I've blogged, feels kind of nice to get back on here actually. Continuing with the DXR project I have obtained a "packaging" role. My new job now aside from being the REPO master is to package JShydra.

JSHydra Description: JSHydra is a static analysis tool that is capable of performing analysis of general JavaScript code. It is inspired by the Dehydra and Treehydra tools, which can perform similar tasks in C++ code. In its back-end, it uses the parse tree created by the SpiderMonkey engine. All analysis is performed by running JavaScripts.

I must admit, it has been a slow process getting started (It has been a while since I've had to package something).

There is no actual source tar file of JShydra out there, so I went into the GERMANY cdot machine and found jshydra on there. I created a tar file of the directory and moved the tar file over to my home directory under rpmbuild/SOURCES.

Using the INSTALLING JSHYDRA page off of Mozilla's developer site I started the SPEC file.

Issue #1 (Where I am currently stuck on...)


I will be blogging again as soon as I find a solution....
