Initially we decided to use SASS to handle the CSS. However, over time we decided to use tailwind! We are currently migrating all our styles to tailwind.
Please, every new PR should be using tailwind for styling the components. Eventually we want to remove SASS, but for now it will be still there to support legacy code.
One of the goals we have with this platform is to provide mentorship all over the world, therefore we want to support as many languages as possible.
We are using LinguiJS as the library to enable i18n support. Lingui provides a CLI tool to manage the keys and texts. When working on a new feature that requires you to add some text, we are going to use the CLI to insert that new text into the dictionaries. Follow these steps:
First you need to define the key in the code:
<p><Trans id="home.header.title" /></p>
Then in your terminal you need to extract all the keys running the following command:
$ yarn i18n-extract Catalog statistics: ┌──────────┬─────────────┬─────────┐ │ Language │ Total count │ Missing │ ├──────────┼─────────────┼─────────┤ │ en │ 18 │ 1 │ │ es │ 18 │ 18 │ │ fr │ 18 │ 18 │ └──────────┴─────────────┴─────────┘ (use "lingui add-locale <language>" to add more locales) (use "lingui extract" to update catalogs with new messages) (use "lingui compile" to compile catalogs for production) ✨ Done in 2.95s.
At this point the key will be inserted into all dictionaries, and we will also see a nice count of the missing keys, in this example for english there's only one key missing for translation (The one we just defined in our code), but for the other languages we need to translate them all. This is a nice feature because we can easily know which translations are missing.
src/config/i18n/en/messages.json file (not the
.js but the
.json file) and add the translation to the new key, if you can speak other languages, please go ahead and add the translations as well, if not we can leverage in our community to add the missing translations later on.
Finally we need to compile the dictionaries, just run the following command in your terminal:
$ yarn i18n-compile
This will generate the compiled dictionaries that our app will be using.
Coding Coach Board
In order to organize all the work, we are using https://zenhub.com to keep track of all the epics and tasks. After you login to ZenHub search for the
Coding-Coach/coding-coach repository, make sure you don't add someone else fork.
This section describes the workflow we are going to follow when working in a new feature or fixing a bug. If you want to contribute, please follow these steps:
- Fork this project
- Clone the forked project to your local environment, for example:
git clone email@example.com:crysfel/coding-coach-front-end.git(Make sure to replace the URL to your own repository).
- Add the original project as a remote, for this example the name is
upstream, feel free to use whatever name you want.
git remote add upstream firstname.lastname@example.org:Coding-Coach/coding-coach.git.
Forking the project will create a copy of that project in your own GitHub account, you will commit your work against your own repository.
Updating your local
In order to update your local environment to the latest version on
develop, you will have to pull the changes using the
upstream repository, for example:
git pull upstream develop. This will pull all the new commits from the origin repository to your local environment.
When working on a new feature, create a new branch
feature/something from the
develop branch, for example
feature/login-form. Commit your work against this new branch and push everything to your forked project. Once everything is completed, you should create a PR to the original project. Make sure to add a description about your work.
When fixing a bug, create a new branch
fix/something from the
develop branch, for example
fix/css-btn-issues. When completed, push your commits to your forked repository and create a PR from there. Please make sure to describe what was the problem and how did you fix it.
Updating your local branch
Let's say you've been working on a feature for a couple days, most likely there are new changes in
develop and your branch is behind. In order to update it to the latest (You might not need/want to do this) you need to pull the latest changes to
develop and then rebase your current branch.
$ git checkout develop $ git pull upstream develop $ git checkout feature/something-awesome $ git rebase develop
After this, your commits will be on top of the
develop commits. From here you can push to your
origin repository and create a PR.
You might have some conflicts while rebasing, try to resolve the conflicts for each individual commit. Rebasing is intimidating at the beginning, if you need help don't be afraid to reach out in slack.
In order to merge a PR, it will first go through a review process. Once it is approved, we will merge to the
develop branch using the
Squash button in github.
When using squash, all the commits will be squashed into one. The idea is to merge features/fixes as oppose of merging each individual commit. This helps when looking back in time for changes in the code base, and if the PR has a great comment, it's easier to know why that code was introduced.
