Codebase generators that power codotype.io.

System Requirements

Local Development Setup

The following instructions will guide you through the process of getting your local computer set up to make contributions to the codotype-generator codebase.

Generating an example app with codotype

  1. Fork this repository (codotype/codotype-generator) so you have your own copy hosted on GitHub at github.com/your-username/codotype-generator.

  2. Clone your fork of the repository down to your local machine and navigate into the resulting directory. Use Clone with SSH fron the Clone or download dropdown on GitHub with the following terminal command:

git clone git@github.com:your-username/codotype-generator.git
cd codotype-generator
  1. In the codotype-generator directory, use the following command to add the upstream remote to the repository:
git remote add upstream git@github.com:codotype/codotype-generator.git

You can ensure this worked correctly by running git remote show. You should see entries for both origin and upstream.

The upstream remote will allow you to pull the latest changes from codotype/codotype-generator so you're always editing up-to-date code.

  1. Install npm dependencies:
npm install
  1. Test your installation
npm test

This command will generate a full-stack example application in the codotype-generator/build/app_[...]/todo_list directory. If this command completes without an error, your local setup of codotype is working.

Starting the generated app

  1. Use the following commands to install docker and docker-compose:
# Install Docker
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh

# Add your user to docker group...
sudo usermod -aG docker <username>

# Install docker-compose
sudo curl -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.13.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m`
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
  1. Run docker-compose up in the todo_list directory to start the Docker containers.

  2. Run npm install && npm start in the web_api directory to start the ExpressJS API server. If you get an error message when running npm start, try running MONGO_DB_URI="" PORT="4000" npm start instead as a temporary fix.

  3. Run npm install && npm start in the web_client directory to start the VueJS app. This should automatically open the app in a browser window.

Submitting Changes

The following instructions will guide you through the process of merging your local changes into the upstream codotype/codotype-generator repository.

  1. Push your changes to the dev branch on your fork of the repository:
git push origin dev
  1. Open a new pull-request into the dev branch of codotype/codotype-generator from the dev branch of your fork (i.e. your-username/codotype-generator).

  2. Your pull request will be reviewed.
