If these components are not present in your build, they can be added by appending
--with //examples to your
fx set command. For example:
$ fx set core.x64 --with //examples --with //examples:tests $ fx build
(Disclaimer: if these build rules become out-of-date, please check the Build documentation and update this README!)
These examples are all stored in a package named
There isn't yet a convenient way to directly run a native v2 component, so these examples are run by launching a new component manager in a v1 component to run them. A component manager packaged to be a v1 component is also included in this package for this purpose.
The component manager can be invoked with the
run command, and given a URL for which test component to launch. As an example, the following will run the
$ fx shell 'run fuchsia-pkg://fuchsia.com/components-basic-example#meta/component_manager_for_examples.cmx fuchsia-pkg://fuchsia.com/components-basic-example#meta/hello-world.cm'
When the above command is run, the following output can be seen in
[682199.986470][hello_world] INFO: Hippo: Hello World!
To run a different example, replace
hello-world with the name of a different manifest in
Make sure you have
fx serve running in another terminal so your component can be installed!
To run one of the test components defined here, use
fx test with the package name:
$ fx test hello-world-tests
