Integrating with GPMDP from External Applications
There are two methods you can use to integrate with GPMDP from an external application.
Both are documented in the Docs folder. For one time read access you should
probably use the
JSON interface. For an application that requires continuous
updates as to the state of GPMDP or needs to control GPMDP you should use the
Web Socket interface.
If you have any bugs / issues please check the FAQ first before raising an issue
To get started just pull the repo and run the following
npm install npm run build npm start
To build the installers / release packages you need to run, you can only build a platforms installer from that platform.
# Windows npm run make:win # Mac OS X npm run make:darwin # Ubuntu (Requires the 'dpkg' package) npm run make:deb # Fedora (Requires the 'rpm' package) npm run make:rpm
All releases will be signing with my Code Signing Certificates (Authenticode on Windows and Codesign on OS X)
Please see the development FAQ for additional requirements for building.
If you find something wrong (theming issues, app crashes) please report them as an issue.
If you think you can add something cool or fix a problem, fork the repo and make a pull request :D
NOTE: Some of the functionality in this app has been extracted into smaller submodules. In particular

We run tests and generate signed installers on three CI platforms
You can download the latest signed installers for Windows from the artifacts section of AppVeyor
You can download the latest signed package for OS X from the URL at the bottom of the build log on Travis CI
You can download the latest linux (debian and fedora) builds from the artifacts section on Circle CI
