Chrome Platform Status
Get the code
git clone --recursive https://github.com/GoogleChrome/chromium-dashboard
First, install the Google App Engine SDK for Python.
You'll also need pip, node, npm, and gulp:
npm install -g bower gulp npm install
This will also pull down bower_components and run
gulp to build the site.
To start the main server and the notifier backend, run:
Create a file named
env_vars.yaml in the root directory and fill it with:
env_variables: DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE: 'settings' FIREBASE_SERVER_KEY: <SERVER_KEY>
FIREBASE_SERVER_KEY is the Firebase server key obtained from the Firebase console.
If you want to test push notification features, you'll need to create a file named
.fcm_server_key in the main project root. Copy in the FCM server key obtained
from the Firebase console.
./scripts/start_server.sh is run, it will populate this value as an environment variable.
- Locally, the
/featurelist pulls from prod (https://www.chromestatus.com/features.json). Opening one of the features will 404 because the entry is not actually in the local db. If you want to test local entries, modify
templates/features.htmlto pull locally and add some db entries by signing in to the app (bottom link). Make sure to check the "sign in as admin" box when doing so. Note that you can also simply go to
localhostto pull locally.
Seed the blink component owners
Visit http://localhost:8080/admin/blink/populate_blink to see the list of Blink component owners.
Debugging / settings
settings.py contains a list
of globals for debugging and running the site locally.
False, will run the site without vulcanizing the Polymer elements.
False will turn off email notifications to feature owners.
False will turn off sending push notifications for all users.
Note you need to have admin privileges on the
cr-status cloud project to be
able to deploy the site.
First, update the version field in
app.yaml. That will ensure the app deploys
to a versioned URL and helps for rolling back later. Then, run the helper script:
This will build the site and deploy it to GAE.
Lastly, open the Google Developer Console and flip to the new version.
