Deploying Arbitrary Branch

Coming soon!

Specifying an API Key

The app uses the API key provided in the site.json by default. If you want to override that, specify an CODE_GOV_API_KEY environmental variable. Here's an example:

CODE_GOV_API_KEY=l87sfdi7ybc2bic7bai8cb2i176c3b872tb3 npm run start

Generating License Data

To update the dependency_licenses.json file, run npm run licenses.

File Structure

The directories in src are organized around the pillars of React, along with several additional custom file types. When creating new files, be sure to add your file and any necessary templates, styles, and tests to a directory dedicated to your new file in the appropriate place.

Style Guide

We've moved the bulk of the CSS for this application into a Style Guide repository so that we can more easily keep things consistent and deploy changes more quickly.

You'll need to clone/download the Style Guide repository to get started.

If you need to make CSS changes, make them within this directory and commit them to that repository.

For more instructions on how to make changes, view the readme inside of the Style Guide repository.
