FAPE: Flexible Acting and Planning Environment
FAPE from source
Build process requires SBT and Java 8. Instructions for installing SBT can be found here. FAPE is developed and tested on Linux but there should be no problems in getting it to run on another OS.
When you have SBT, simply run the following command in the project directory.
# Build the project with SBT sbt compile # Create executable script sbt pack
You can generate a script to run the FAPE planner with
sbt pack. This will produce an executable at
target/pack/bin/fape. To see options, run
We recommend using IntelliJ Idea which has support for SBT project definitions (either built-in or though plugin depending on the version you have).
We use annotations from project lombok to generate some boiler plate code. This should not interfere with sbt build but you should enable it in IntelliJ:
- add the lombok plugin
- enable annotation processing: Preferences -> Build, Execution, Deployment -> Compiler -> Annotation Processors -> Enable annotation processing
Once you have compiled FAPE (using sbt pack), you can run it with
path/to/fape path/to/anml/problem/file # e.g. target/pack/bin/fape planning/domains/logistics-hier/logistics.x04-1.pb.anml
For more options, run
fape --help. Example ANML planning problems are available in
You can find precompiled version of FAPE at: https://github.com/arthur-bit-monnot/fape/releases
Precompiled binaries come in two flavors:
- an executable script for Linux (e.g.
fape-1.0) that is self contained with all dependencies
- a single jar bundled with all dependencies (e.g.
fape-planning-assembly-1.0.jar). This can be run with
java -ea -jar fape-planning-assembly-1.0.jar [options] path/to/problem.anml
In both case, your version of the Java Runtime Environment must be at least 1.8.
Compiled jars for FAPE are also available on Maven Central Repository
