ADXUtil

This utilities is use to facilitate the creation and the packaging of ADX project (ADP and ADC).

It contains validators and allow to display outputs of the ADX using the ADXEngine.

ADXUtil is a CLI tools (Command Line Interface) but it also provide an API for NodeJS project.

Setup

Install NodeJs: https://nodejs.org/download/

Then install the npm package adxutil:

npm install -g adxutil

Run unit tests of ADXUtil

Install jasmine-node for unit tests

npm install jasmine-node -g

Then run

jasmine-node spec/

or

npm test

Generate

Start Windows PowerShell (Start > All programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > Windows PowerShell). Target the root directory where you want to generate the ADP or ADC (or use the -o or --output option).

cd C:\Users\user_name\Documents\ADXProjects\

Then enter the following command:

ADXUtil generate adc my_adc_name

Or

ADXUtil generate adp my_adp_name

That should produce an output like:

generate (Example output)

To generate the ADX structure, ADCUtil uses templates stored under the /ADXUtil/templates/. By default, it use the default template (/ADXUtil/templates/adp/default/) or (/ADXUtil/templates/adc/default/).

That means that you can predefine many more templates and store them in the /ADXUtil/templates/ folder. Then you only need to specify the name of the template folder you want to use to generate your ADX:

ADXUtil --template my_adc_template_name generate adc my_adc_name

Or

ADXUtil --template my_adp_template_name generate adp my_adp_name

List of possible error messages

Errors

"The @name@ parameter is required"
"The --output path is required"
"The directory @%s@ already exists."
"Incorrect ADX name. The name of the ADX should only contains letters, digits, spaces, @_,-,.@ characters"
"Cannot found the @%s@ template"

Publish

Start Windows PowerShell (Start > All programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > Windows PowerShell). Target your ADX directory.

cd C:\Users\user_name\Documents\ADXProjects\my_adx_name

Then enter the following command with a platform argument and then the options you want:

ADXUtil publish ZenDesk --url http://url/to/zendesk --section mySection --username myName --password secret

You can use following command line options for the ZenDesk publisher:

List of possible error messages

Errors

"Invalid `platform` argument"
"Missing `platform` argument"
"Invalid `configurator` argument"
"Invalid `options` argument"
"Invalid `title` argument"
"Non-existing section. Please check the section title or your logins"
"Missing `configurator` argument"
"The number of .adc files is incorrect"
"Error when updating or creating this article : There are already at least two instances of this article on ZenDesk (Check in draft mode if you don't see them in help_center mode)"
"Missing `title` arg"
"Arguments are missing. Check the arguments in command line or your personal preferences file"

Validate

Start Windows PowerShell (Start > All programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > Windows PowerShell). Target your ADX directory (or indicates the path of your ADX after the validate command).

cd C:\Users\user_name\Documents\ADXProjects\my_adx_name

Then enter the following command:

ADXUtil validate

That should produce an output like:

validate (Example output)

The validation will check:

  • The presence of the config.xml file
  • The directory structure
  • The files extensions using a whitelist and a blacklist (All other extensions will produce a warning)
  • The config.xml using the XSD schema
  • The logical in the config.xml ** The name information ** The constraints nodes (at least one control or question must be specified for an ADC) ** The outputs, output, content and attribute nodes ** The properties nodes

It will also run the auto-generated unit tests and all unit tests of the ADX using the @ADXShell@ tool. You can skip some validations using the following options in the command line:

  • -T, --no-test To skip the execution of the unit tests

  • -A, --no-autoTest
    To skip the execution of the auto-generated unit tests

  • -X, --no-xml
    To skip the validation of the config.xml file

Build

Start Windows PowerShell (Start > All programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > Windows PowerShell). Target your ADC directory (or indicate the path of your ADC after the build command).

cd C:\Users\user_name\Documents\ADXProjects\my_adx_name

Then enter the following command:

ADXUtil build

That should produce an output like:

build (Example output)

The build command will first validate the ADX like the "validate command":#validate did (it will enforce the XML validation). If the validation fails, the build will stop otherwise it will compress all necessary files into a zip file with the *.adc or *.adp extension.

The file will be generated under the ADX directory in the \bin\ folder.

List of possible error messages

Errors

"Validation failed"
"Build failed with errors."

Show

Start @Windows PowerShell@ (@Start > All programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > Windows PowerShell@). Target your ADX directory (or indicate the path of your ADX after the @show@ command).

cd C:\Users\user_name\Documents\ADXProjects\my_adx_name

Then enter the following command:

ADXUtil show --output MyADXOutputName --fixture TheFixtureFileName.xml

OR

ADXUtil show -o MyADXOutputName -f TheFixtureFileName.xml

That should show the result of the MyADXOutputName with the specified fixture.

List of possible error messages

Errors

"Please specify the name of the output you want to show, using the option -o or --output.",
"Please specify the name of the fixture you want to use, using the option -f or --fixture."

Import

Start @Windows PowerShell@ (@Start > All programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > Windows PowerShell@). Target your ADX directory (or indicate the path of your ADX after the @show@ command).

cd C:\Users\user_name\Documents\ADXProjects\my_adx_name

Then enter the following command:

ADXUtil show --sourcePath "C:\Askia\adx.xml" --currentQuestion questionName --targetName fixture.xml

That should create an xml file in the test/fixture folder of the adx project

List of possible error messages

Errors

"Please specify the path of the xml file you want to import, using the option --sourcePath.",
"Please specify the path of the name of the fixture you want to create, using the option --targetName."
"Please specify the path of the question you want to import, using the option --currentQuestion."

API Usage

Please find the full API documentation here

Example of usage of existing ADX

const ADX = require('adxutil').ADX;

const myAdx = new ADX('path/to/adx/dir');
    
// Validate an ADX
const configTest = {
    test : false, 
    autoTest : false
}; 
myAdx.validate(configTest, (err, report) => {
    // Callback when the ADX structure has been validated
});

// Show the output of an ADX
const configShow = { 
    output : 'fallback', 
    fixture : 'single.xml'  
};
myAdx.show(configShow,  (err, output) => {
    // Callback with the output of the ADX
});

// Build the ADX (package it)
const configBuild = {
    test : false, 
    autoTest : false
};
myAdx.build(configBuild, (err, path, report) => {
    // Callback when the ADX has been built 
});

Generate and use the new ADX instance

const configGeneration = {
    type : 'adc', 
    output : '/path/of/parent/dir', 
    template : 'blank'
};
ADX.generate('myNewADC', configGeneration , (err, adc) => {
    console.log(adc.path);
    adc.load((err) => {
        if (err) {
            console.log(err);
            return;
        }
        console.log(adc.configurator.info.get());
    });
});

OR

const configGeneration = {
    type : 'adp', 
    output : '/path/of/parent/dir', 
    template : 'default'
};
ADX.generate('myNewADP', configGeneration, (err, adp) => {
    console.log(adp.path);
    adp.load((err) => {
        if (err) {
            console.log(err);
            return;
        }
        console.log(adp.configurator.info.get());
    });
});
