Working with Packages on 2.3 and Converting to Bootstrap

(1/9) > >>

jimp:
I have collected and combined a lot of information and added some more to come up with what I hope is a good set of info to help others make the jump into working with packages on 2.3 and converting things to bootstrap as needed.

Basic info for those who have not yet done any development work:
https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Getting_Started_with_pfSense_Development
https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Contributor_License_Agreement_for_Developers

Overview of the new pfSense Package port directory structure:
https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Package_Port_Directory_Structure

A list of current packages on 2.3 and where they are located inside the ports repository:
https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Package_Port_List

Updated doc about Developing Packages with 2.3-specific info:
https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Developing_Packages

Notes about converting packages to bootstrap:
https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Converting_Packages_to_Bootstrap

2.3 Package Conversion and Operation Status
Here is a Google Docs sheet with the current list of 2.3 packages and their status. Many use XML forms and do not need any help (which is good!) but still need testing to confirm they function as expected on 2.3.

The master ticket in Redmine for the conversion of packages is here: https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/5568

Let me know if anything seems to be missing or if there are any specific topics missed that need covered.

Thanks to all for their effort!

bmeeks, I was thinking of taking a shot at converting Suricata so I had somewhere to dive in if you need a hand.

jimp:
I added a link above to a Google docs sheet with the current status of the packages we have moved to 2.3 already. Many do not need conversion but still could use testing.

Feel free to report success or failure here in this thread but if you do find a problem please start a new thread to investigate the problem to avoid crosstalk this thread.

Thank you!  I will be glad for the help and to help you.  Suricata has not been started. I had been working on Snort until I took a break to work on the netmap stuff.  Send me a PM and we can swap e-mail addresses (if you don't have mine already).  Will be easier probably to correspond that way or by phone even.

Will do. I figured it would be best to attempt a smaller package, like cron, so I can get the process nailed down before moving onto something larger like Suricata. I'll be in touch once I get that done and we can come up with a plan of attack.
