Holochain Upgrade 0.1 -> 0.2

For existing hApps that have been written for Holochain version 0.1, these are steps to upgrade to Holochain version 0.2.

Steps to upgrade Nix flake from Holochain version 0.1 to 0.2

Note

The following steps only apply to Nix flakes that have been either generated by the Holochain scaffolding tool or follow the recommended format as described in Dev Tools Setup.

In the root folder of the hApp to be upgraded execute the following command in a terminal:

nix run nixpkgs#gnused -- -i 's/dir=versions\/0_1/dir=versions\/0_2/g' flake.nix

Alternatively open flake.nix in an editor. It should look like this:

{
description = "My hApp";

inputs = {
nixpkgs.follows = "holonix/nixpkgs";
versions.url = "github:holochain/holochain?dir=versions/0_1";
holonix.url = "github:holochain/holochain";
holonix.inputs.versions.follows = "versions";
};
...
}

Change this line

versions.url = "github:holochain/holochain?dir=versions/0_1";

to

versions.url = "github:holochain/holochain?dir=versions/0_2";

Nix flake for Holochain v0.2

The flake.nix for Holochain version 0.2 looks like this:

{
description = "My hApp";

inputs = {
nixpkgs.follows = "holonix/nixpkgs";
versions.url = "github:holochain/holochain?dir=versions/0_2";
holonix.url = "github:holochain/holochain";
holonix.inputs.versions.follows = "versions";
};
...
}

Before building the dev shell, make sure to update the flakeā€™s input sources:

nix flake update

Now you can build and execute the dev shell:

nix develop
