Open City App

Prequisites (Mac OS X)

Getting started

Please read Getting Started with React Native for more detailed instructions on how to setup the tools.

git clone

cd open-city-app

npm install

npm install -g react-native-cli

Running on iOS simulator: react-native run-ios

Running on Android (you have to have a device connected which has developer mode enabled, or simulator running)

  1. cp ./android/app/src/main/res/values/api-keys.example.xml ./android/app/src/main/res/values/api-keys.xml

  2. Generate a Google Maps Android API KEY (available from Google API Library) and add it to /android/app/src/main/res/values/api-keys.xml

  3. Add fingerprint of debug keystore into Google API credentials

     keytool -list -v -keystore ~/.android/debug.keystore -alias androiddebugkey -storepass android -keypass android
  4. Add API key for sending service requests. It needs to be added to config.json as the value for OPEN311_SEND_SERVICE_API_KEY.

react-native run-android

If you run debug build on device you have to forward the dev server port to the device:

adb reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081


adb -s <Device ID> reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081 if multiple devices/simulators are connected.

HOX! Adding new react-native bridge libraries

You might have to add native dependencies manually. Using rnpm might break react-native-maps setup.

To link libraries with rnpm run: rnpm link

Changing API urls

Edit ./src/config.js to change API urls.

Building Android release

  1. Make sure you can run the app with react-native run-android

  2. Generate signing key and place it in ./android/app (don't lose this when publishing the app. You can't make updates for the app unless the signing key is the same as the last release)

     `keytool -genkey -v -keystore my-release-key.keystore -alias open-city-app -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000`
  3. Generate fingerprint from keystore and add it to your Google Maps API fingerprints

     `keytool -list -v -keystore my-release-key.keystore -alias open-city-app -storepass PASSWORD -keypass PASSWORD`
  4. Add these lines into ~/.gradle/

OPEN_CITY_APP_STORE_FILE=my-release-key.keystore OPEN_CITY_APP_KEY_ALIAS=open-city-app OPEN_CITY_APP_STORE_PASSWORD=*Keystore password* OPEN_CITY_APP_KEY_PASSWORD=*Keystore password*

3. Run `./gradlew assembleRelease` in ./android

## Building iOS release


## Developing Components with [Storybook](

1. Write stories in `storybook/stories/<component-name>/`

2. Start storybook

      `npm run storybook`

3. Run the app `react-native run-ios` to see your stories on the device. To preserve storybook state while making changes, enable hot reload from development menu

4. Optionally, navigate to [localhost:7007](localhost:7007) to see stories
