Install on Glitch
Initial Setup (GitHub)
Before you can install Bastion in Glitch, the following steps needs to be performed:
- Go to GitHub.
- Either sign in or sign up for GitHub.
- Go to Bastion’s repository.
- Create a fork of Bastion’s repository.
- Go to the forked repository. It will be in your repositories.
- Go to Settings, and then click on the Branches tab in the left.
- Change the default branch from
Initial Setup (Glitch)
Go to Glitch
And then Sign in with GitHub.
Then create a New Project in Glitch. It can be of any type.
Make your project private before doing anything else so that your credentials are safe from others. If you’re not able to do this, ask around in Bastion HQ and some amazing people will help you out.
Click on the Logs button (at the top left corner) in your Glitch project. It will open the log window at the bottom, where you can find the Console button. Click on that and you’ll be redirected to your project’s console.
Now, before we install Bastion, we’ll need to clear all files from the default project that was automatically created by Glitch. Run the following command in your project’s console to clean everything up:
rm -rf /app/* /app/.* 1>/dev/null
First of all, we need to clone (copy) Bastion from your forked repository. Run the following command to do that, replacing
github_user_namewith your GitHub username and
bastion_repo_namewith the name of the repository you forked (will be
git clone https://github.com/github_user_name/bastion_repo_name.git .
For example, my GitHub username is
k3rn31p4nicand my forked repository name is
Bastion, so I’ll write:
git clone https://github.com/k3rn31p4nic/Bastion.git .
Bastion will now be imported to Glitch in a few seconds.
But, when you go to your project editor, you won’t see it. Why? Because Glitch console doesn’t sync with your project editor automatically. To do that, run the following command:
Now when can go back to your project editor, you’ll see that it has been updated.
