How to migrate formulas from V1.0 to V2.0 ?


If you use Ritchie 1.0 version and want to upgrade to the 2.0 one, you have to update your formula’s repository structure to be compatible to the pattern used on the new version.

How to migrate?

Step 1: Create new formula repo from scratch using the rit create formula command.

  • Adding the same formulas paths used on the older repository to the new one.

Step 2: Export your formulas implementations from the older repository to the new one.

  • The structure still uses the same files: config.json , main.*, formula.*.
  • Copy these files codes from the old structure to the new one, respecting the new layout.

Step 3: Publish the new formula repository on github or gitlab (also, it can public or private).

Step 4: Generate a release of the formula repository.

Step 5: Add the formula repository on Ritchie using the rit add repo command.

Step 6: Share your formula’s repository with your team, colleagues or the community.
