Create Services

Cloning a Starter repository

To create a new Hexagon service, you can clone a minimum running example using the Gradle Starter or the Maven Starter.

From scratch

You can write a Gradle project from scratch (Gradle 5.3 or newer is required) using the following build.gradle:

plugins {
    id 'org.jetbrains.kotlin.jvm' version '1.3.31'

apply plugin: 'kotlin'
apply plugin: 'application'

mainClassName = 'HelloKt'

repositories {
    jcenter ()

dependencies {
    compile ("com.hexagonkt:http_server_jetty:$hexagonVersion")

From a template

You can create a service from a Lazybones template. To do so type: lazybones create hexagon-service srvName

curl -s | bash && source ~/.sdkman/bin/
sdk i lazybones
mkdir ~/.lazybones
lazybones config set bintrayRepositories pledbrook/lazybones-templates jamming/maven
lazybones create hexagon-service srvName -Pgroup=org.example -Pversion=0.1 -Pdescription=Description
cd srvName
