How to Run

You can make sure you have the latest version of the database by running:

docker-compose pull

Then run it with docker-compose:

docker-compose up --build

Make API requests by using the root address: http://localhost:3000/api/

You should get a response with the available endpoints for the root:

  "ability-scores": "/api/ability-scores",
  "classes": "/api/classes",
  "conditions": "/api/conditions",
  "damage-types": "/api/damage-types",
  "equipment-categories": "/api/equipment-categories",
  "equipment": "/api/equipment",
  "features": "/api/features",
  "languages": "/api/languages",
  "magic-schools": "/api/magic-schools",
  "monsters": "/api/monsters",
  "proficiencies": "/api/proficiencies",
  "races": "/api/races",
  "skills": "/api/skills",
  "spells": "/api/spells",
  "subclasses": "/api/subclasses",
  "subraces": "/api/subraces",
  "traits": "/api/traits",
  "weapon-properties": "/api/weapon-properties"

Using a local image of 5e Database

If you are working on a feature which requires changes to both this repo, and the 5e-database repo, it is useful to know how to connect the former to the latter for testing purposes. A simple process for doing so is as follows:

  1. In the file docker-compose.yml, you can replace the line image: bagelbits/5e-database with build: [relativePathToDatabaseRepo]. Make sure not to commit this change, as it is intended for local testing only.

  2. Run your branch of 5e-srd-api using the method outlined in the above section of this readme file. So long as there are no transient errors, the API should build successfully, and your changes to both repos should be noticeable.

Running Tests

Unit Tests

You can run unit tests locally by using the command: npm run test:unit

Integration Tests

Integration tests need to be ran in the API docker container for them to function properly. In order to run integration tests locally you can use the command: npm run test:integration:local
