If running commands on the terminal is a frightening prospect for you...
We provide executable script files for windows (publish.bat) and mac (publish.sh).
Command line parameters
There are multiple options available for publishing:
--offline: use this arg if you are offline and cannot fetch dependencies
-nogen: don't generate the spec, just run the validation. (to use this, manually fix things in the publication directory, and then migrate the changes back to source when done. this is a hack)
-noarchive: don't generate the archive. Don't use this if you're a core editor
-web: produce the HL7 ready publication form for final upload (only core editors)
-diff: the executable program to use if platform round-tripping doesn't produce identical content (default: c:\program files (x86)\WinMerge\WinMergeU.exe)
-name: the "name" to go in the title bar of each of the specification
To add any of these options to the publish task, run the command as
./gradlew publish --args"<YOUR ARGS HERE>"
For example, if you wanted to publish without generating the spec, just running the validation, you would run the command
./gradlew publish --args="-nogen"
Each time a pull request is open, the pull request pipeline runs. If the pipeline successfully publishes, it uploads the build as a separate branch on build.fhir.org/branches, where it can be reviewed to ensure accuracy.
