Local development

./gradlew core:php8.0Action:distDocker
./gradlew core:php7.4Action:distDocker
./gradlew core:php7.3Action:distDocker

This will produce the images whisk/action-php-v8.0, whisk/action-php-v7.4 & whisk/action-php-v7.3 respectively.

Build and Push image

docker login
./gradlew core:php8.0Action:distDocker -PdockerImagePrefix=$prefix-user -PdockerRegistry=docker.io
./gradlew core:php7.4Action:distDocker -PdockerImagePrefix=$prefix-user -PdockerRegistry=docker.io
./gradlew core:php7.3Action:distDocker -PdockerImagePrefix=$prefix-user -PdockerRegistry=docker.io

Deploy OpenWhisk using ansible environment that contains the kinds php:8.0, php:7.4 & php:7.3 Assuming you have OpenWhisk already deploy locally and OPENWHISK_HOME pointing to root directory of OpenWhisk core repository.

Set ROOTDIR to the root directory of this repository.

Redeploy OpenWhisk

cd $OPENWHISK_HOME/ansible
ANSIBLE_CMD="ansible-playbook -i ${ROOTDIR}/ansible/environments/local"
$ANSIBLE_CMD setup.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD couchdb.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD initdb.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD wipe.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD openwhisk.yml

Or you can use wskdev and create a soft link to the target ansible environment, for example:

ln -s ${ROOTDIR}/ansible/environments/local ${OPENWHISK_HOME}/ansible/environments/local-php
wskdev fresh -t local-php

To use as docker action push to your own dockerhub account

docker tag whisk/php8.0Action $user_prefix/action-php-v8.0
docker push $user_prefix/action-php-v8.0
docker tag whisk/php7.4Action $user_prefix/action-php-v7.4
docker push $user_prefix/action-php-v7.4
docker tag whisk/php7.3Action $user_prefix/action-php-v7.3
docker push $user_prefix/action-php-v7.3

Then create the action using your image from dockerhub

wsk action update myAction myAction.php --docker $user_prefix/action-php-v8.0

The $user_prefix is usually your dockerhub user id.


Install dependencies from the root directory on $OPENWHISK_HOME repository

./gradlew install

Using gradle for the ActionContainer tests you need to use a proxy if running on Mac, if Linux then don't use proxy options You can pass the flags -Dhttp.proxyHost=localhost -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128 directly in gradle command. Or save in your $HOME/.gradle/gradle.properties


Using gradle to run all tests

./gradlew :tests:test

Using gradle to run some tests

./gradlew :tests:test --tests *ActionContainerTests*

Using IntelliJ:

  • Import project as gradle project.
  • Make sure the working directory is root of the project/repo
  • Add the following Java VM properties in ScalaTests Run Configuration, easiest is to change the Defaults for all ScalaTests to use this VM properties
