[solved] 1.11.0 missing JS/CSS

I’m trying to build Gitea 1.11.0 on FreeBSD, and that appears to be working just fine; however, /js/index.js and all other similar resources only give a 404. Manually copying web_src to the public directory doesn’t seem to work, as the JS throws errors in the browser console.

Is there a missing build step or parameter?

How are you building Gitea?

The make command used is make build
If you want SQLite, it would be TAGS="sqlite sqlite_unlock_notify" make build
If you want the assets embedded, TAGS="bindata" make build
Or the combination of the two latter commands

I’ve gotten a bit further. Previously, the build was a mostly pure Go build, now it’s gmake with, among others, an NPM-based toolset.

The Makefile uses a lot of invocations that only work with Linux command line tools, which doesn’t make it easier.

Ah, yes, the tools have increased.
On Windows I’ve had good luck using Git Bash, though on other non-unix systems I’m not sure on the best way to do it.

If you could let us know about what tools you have problems with and how you solve that, we can either update our docs or better still improve our Makefile. :grin:

One step further: I can build it (I think), but make install fails:

gmake[2]: Entering directory '/var/ports/work/home/vagrant/gitea/work/gitea-1.11.0'

go install -v -tags 'bindata pam sqlite sqlite_unlock_notify' -ldflags '-s -w '

can't load package: package .: code in directory /var/ports/work/home/vagrant/gitea/work/gitea-1.11.0 expects import "code.gitea.io/gitea"

Any suggestion? Or do I supply my own code to copy the build results to the staging area?

Oh, and at least in FreeBSD, the gmake default for --jobs appears to be larger than one, leading to go and npm running concurrently, and the go build for bindata.go failing. Should a parallel build work?

That directory structure doesn’t look right. I’m not sure, but I think you need:

# I believe it **must** end with /src
export GOPATH=some/path/src

Then, Gitea’s source code should be at:


And your make command needs to be launched from that directory:

cd $GOPATH/code.gitea.io/gitea

Since golang is convention before configuration, I think that paths are important.

I have a rough version of the updated port that builds, installs, and works OK, but I will need a bit more time to clean it up.

WIth the current release archive, a FreeBSD package build won’t be possible. See https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issues/10253

This is now resolved with the release of 1.11.1
