So I am doing some yak shaving, and need to start by contributing to crates.io. I want to log my experience setting up the environment. I hope it will act as some supplementary documentation on how to get involved. I also think logging this in public will help keep me moving. I want to log this as I go so I don’t forget what I get stuck on. So hear gose.
- I have a linux mint 18.1 VM running in hyper v. I think I will copy that to use as a development vm. Copying vm’s in hyper v is surprisingly hard, but eventually I got it done. Next install git, npm and postgis on the new vm. As a windows based lifeform, Installing things on linux is surprisingly easy.
More to come, as I actually do things.
