This article explains how to setup Bazel, in order to work properly with the EmbeddedSystemsBuildScripts.
Bazelisk is a bazel wrapper, which provides an easy way to
switch between different bazel versions, without uninstalling
your local bazel installation. In order to build with a specific
bazel version, you need to supply a
.bazelversion file, where
the desired version is specified, in your project root.
For more information take a look
at the Github repository
The following manual explains how to install bazelisk on a ubuntu host. This should be the same on any other Debian based systems. Some things may differ if you’re using a different Linux distribution. In that case please look up your errors and add them to the troubleshooting section.
1. Step: Install Go
The installation slightly differs between Ubuntu versions. Please take a look here. The first paragraph on Ubuntu 19.04(LTS) should be fine.
2. Step: Install Bazelisk
This chapter explains how to get and install bazelisk. However, you are also able to fetch a suited binary from the Github releases.
go get github.com/bazelbuild/bazeliskin your command line
add to your PATH variable:
export PATH=$PATH:$(go env GOPATH)/bin
you may also want to simlink
bazel, but that’s not really necessary
install the homebrew package manager
brew install bazelisk
