I'm still in the middle of building packages for our clients for the packages that aren't normally distributed for windows to make upgrading to PostgreSQL 9.4 smooth. One of those is PL/V8 which we use for some custom functions.
I had mentioned how I build PL/V8 for PostgreSQL windows, and the instructions are a bit out of date., but I put more up to date instructions on my gist page. I tend to use gist a lot as a public scrap book with hopes someone else can learn from my toils and save them some trouble. At some point I should probably get more organized with my scrapbooks.
I have updated instructions on my gist page for building with PostgreSQL 9.4 Build v8 and plv8
As mentioned in our previous article Building on MingW deploying on VC we often build on MingW and deploy on Windows servers running EDB distributed VC PostgreSQL builds
for extensions we want that don't come packaged. One of the new ones we are really excited about is the PL/V8 and PL/Coffee ones. Could we do it
and would it actually work on a VC build. YES WE CAN and yes it does. I HAZ Coffee and a V8: .
Here are some instructions we hope others will find useful. Even if you aren't on
Windows, you might still find them useful since MingW behaves much like other Unix environments.
