EESoc Website Source Code

Minimum PHP Version Build Status

Imperial College London EESoc's Offical Website Source Code


Most items may not be completable due to time constraints but should be looked into in future.

  • Use new API from union for sync functions
  • Create minimalist + responsive public pages
  • Create custom subscribable lists for categorical newsletters
  • Upgrade server to PHP7
  • Upgrade bootstrap to v4
  • Re-design website/back-end layout with new user/admin dashboard

Major Technologies Used


  1. Rename app/config/database.sample.php to app/config/database.php and make modifications as necessary.
  2. Rename bootstrap/start.sample.php to bootstrap/start.php and replace your-machine-name with the hostname of your local machine is. This can be found by the hostname command.
  3. Install Composer by running curl -sS | php
  4. Run php composer.phar install to download and install dependencies.
  5. Run php artisan migrate to run database migrations (make sure database has already been created).
  6. If you're on PHP 5.4, run php artisan serve to start the built-in web server.
  7. Enjoy!

Writeable folders

Certain folders within the repo must be write-able by the web process in order for the site to operate. They are:

  • /app/storage
  • /public/files
  • /public/assets
You can’t perform that action at this time.
