Requirements

Installation

Clone the repo locally then install all the dependencies using NPM

$ git clone https://github.com/DivySrivastava/spruce.git
$ cd spruce
$ npm i

Local Development

Before running, we need to add the Instgram and Google API Credentials to the project. Under the config directory of the repo, you will find instagram.js and google.js. We need to add the <CLIENT_ID>, <CLIENT_SECRET> and <host>:<port> with our own API credentials

/** REPLACE YOUR API CREDENTIALS HERE **/
var in_client_id = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX', // <CLIENT_ID>
    in_client_secret = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX', // <CLIENT_SECRET>

Now Replace the <host> & <port> with the redirect uri specified in the Instagram API Dashboard and Google API Dashboard. Default is http://localhost:80/account/oauth.

var in_redirect_uri = 'http://localhost:80/account/oauth/:service'

Finally start the MongoDB server in a seperate bash/pm2

$ mongod

and then start the spruce server via npm.

$ npm start

To know

spruce uses mongoose as an ORM for performing CRUD operations on MongoDB and express.js for server-side HTTP routing.

This project needs contributors!!
