Ripple emulator extension

I am taking the summer to attempt to try my self-taught hands at webworks for BB10 using BBUI.JS. I am having a problem getting ripple to run. I cant get the ripple services to run via commnd line.

 

 

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\Ripple <version>\services\bin directory, type ripple-services.

 

I dont know exactly what bin directory, type is.

 

I am using windows 7

Re: Ripple emulator extension

Hi!

As a chrome extension, all you need to do is to navigate in chrome to your local webserver where your app is hosted. Then, click the Ripple extension button in chrome and it will start the ripple interface.

 

cheers

Re: Ripple emulator extension


From what I have experienced, you will need both things. The CLI and Chrome.  Run the command from the command line (type ripple-services) and leave that running.  You should see something like

"defaulting to port 9910...

Going into production mode.

Picard boldly goes on port 9910"

 

Leave that command prompt window open.

Go to Chrome and navigate to your local page and click the Ripple extension button.

If you put the page documents into the folder c:\users\<your username>\RippleSites\<your app name> you will only need to navigate (in chrome extension) to localhost:9910/<your app name>/index.html

You need to include index.html or whatever your default html file is.  From there you can set it up just the same as the standalone ripple.

 

Hope that helps

Yep, as mentioned you have to start the Ripple service and leave it running, then open chrome and goto the page, then enable ripple.

Re: Ripple emulator extension

Thanks for all the help. I did read that ripple services must be kept running in the background. I guess my question was how do i get it to run?

Re: Ripple emulator extension

Create a shortcut to Program Files\Ripple\services\bin\ripple-services.bat and run it
