Command Line Building of NSFs/NTFs - “Headless” Designer

A command line build system has been added to Domino® Designer to let you build NSF and NTF files from source code repositories.

To use this feature, it is not necessary to import source repositories into the Designer application to build the NSF/NTF files. This feature is provided to help support team-based application development using Domino Designer.

To enable this functionality in Domino Designer, you need to add the following line to your NOTES.INI file:
DESIGNER_AUTO_ENABLED=true
A command line build can be run in two different ways
  • using the single command method
  • using the command file method
The rest of this section provides details on how to use each of these methods.
