How to Run Ocean of Code github project Locally

Please i’m trying to clone and run the project from github but I didn’t find out how to run it!

Please any instructions to run the project ?

You can run your code from a local file using the extension and Chrome application. This is what I currently use so that I can edit my code from my own text editor.

If you want to run it locally you need to have JDK 1.8 (or higher) and Maven installed.

Then you need to do the following:

  • Run mvn clean install to install the required dependencies.

  • Run the src/test/java/ which will dump the game summary on the stdout, and will also give you a web version to see the game in action (e.g. http://localhost:8888/test.html). Note: by default this runs the default dummy agent.

  • Write your own bot and update the src/test/java/ to run it as an agent.


Can you be a little more specific when you write

Run the src/test/java/

Did you really run it, or do you only guess what’s need to be done?

I am not familiar with Java tools, could you pls help how to run the referee locally?
What I did so far: installed maven, installed JDK 1.8, run “mvn clean install”. I have a compiled jar file.
When I try to run it, it says “no main manifest attribute”.
My command line was (worked with some other multi referees):

java -jar -Dleague.level=2 cg-ooc.jar -p1 “php ooc_v01.php” -p2 “php ooc_base.php” -s -l ./logs/game_single.json > report_single.txt

How to set “main manifest attribute” (whatever it is)? Thx.

Hi @TBali, this is not implemented in the game repository yet.
I created a PR for it here:
Or you can use it directly from my fork.


Thank you, your fork did the trick! :slight_smile:
