Build Status

Jury Instructions

This is a project to assist judges/practitioners fill out criminal pattern jury instructions.


For more information about this project and how we're building it please see the docs folder


To run this locally the following software is required:

If on a Mac you can install Node and npm via Homebrew with brew install node

Local server

To run this application on your local machine you first need to install dependencies. From the project root, run the following command:

npm install

Once that completes you can run the application by running the following from the project root:

npm start


Alternatively if you wish to run this in Docker instead of on your local you may do so using the included Dockerfile. To use the Docker simply run the following commands:

docker build -t juryinstructions:latest .
docker run -d -p 4000:4000 juryinstructions:latest

To stop the conatiner run:

docker ps

Take note of the CONTAINER ID then run:

docker stop <container id>

You may then make changes to the code and re-run the initial build and run commands.

Using this product

When a local node instance is running you will see a message on your terminal window that says App listening on port 4000!. With Docker no message will be displayed other than the full container id hash. You can now visit and use the app by going to http://localhost:4000/.

As indicated above in the Setup section: for Docker any code change will require a re-build of the container. Local node instances reload dynamically so you do not need to restart the app unless you make changes to a template.


To run unit tests simply run this command from the project root while the server is running:

npm test --coverage

Running with the --coverage flag will let you scan with SonarQube (after configuring SonarQube). You will need to set sonar.javascript.lcov.reportPaths=coverage/ which can be done in the UI.
