@Basilisvirus There are some notes on this on the CLI repo here: https://github.com/resin-io/resin-cli#windows-support
It’s now actually not totally accurate that you need to install Python or MinGW by hand - you should be able to install windows-build-tools from Microsoft, which can automatically install everything required for a full module build environment on Windows for you, so that npm installing the CLI then completes successfully.
We’re actually in the process of deprecating
resin sync, in large part because Windows support for rsync is poor, and it may be a little tricky to set up in your environment. Our new alternative is
resin local push, which allows you to directly build a real new container on your local device, and is a much closer workflow to real deployment through Resin.io.
To try this out, you’ll need to:
- Install the CLI
resin login to the CLI (choose web authentication)
- Enable ‘local mode’ on the device in your Resin dashboard (go the device’s page, and it’s under ‘Actions’)
resin local push <your device's ip> -fs . (you can see the ip on the device’s page on the dashboard)
That should immediately trigger a Docker build on your device, restart the application once it’s successful, and start streaming you your application’s logs. The first build might take a minute or two, but after the first successful build all steps will be cached, and future pushes should take around 5 - 10s from start until your new code is up and running. Let me know if you have any trouble!
