This is the new Linode Manager. It provides a web interface for managing your Linode account. Currently this software is pre-alpha and won't be released for a while. Read the blog post.
The following buzzwords are involved in this project:
git clone https://github.com/Linode/manager.git cd manager node --version # should be 6.x or better npm install
Currently the codebase is hardcoded to point to our alpha
environment. It communicates with Linode via
Linode API 4. You'll need to register an OAuth
client in the alpha
environment, then create a file at
src/secrets.js with your client ID and
client secret set appropriately:
export const clientId = 'change me'; export const clientSecret = 'change me'; export const LISH_ROOT = 'wss://lish.alpha.linode.com';
Be sure to set your callback URL to something like
http://localhost:3000/oauth/callback when you register your OAuth client.
Note: if you pick a callback url that is not on localhost:3000, you will need to update the APP_ROOT variable in src/constants.js to point to the different server.
to start the development server. Connect to localhost:3000 to try it out. Most of the changes you make will be applied on the fly, but you may occasionally find that you have to restart it.
While running the manager in development mode, you may press Ctrl+H to view the redux dev tools to track the state of the application, and Ctrl+Q to move them around the screen if necessary. If you'd rather disable the devtools, you can set the NODE_ENV flag to "production" or set the DEVTOOLS_DISABLED flag to false:
DEVTOOLS_DISABLED=true npm start
To run tests:
To automatically re-run tests when you make changes:
npm run test:watch
To automatically re-run tests on a single test file:
npm run test:watch --single_file=**/name.spec.js
Come chat with us in #linode-next on irc.oftc.net if you're interested in helping out with this. We'd love to have community input on how the new manager takes shape. This is your chance to help build the features you need into it! We'll take pull requests in the usual way. We're still learning about the technologies in use here ourselves, so bear with us as we figure out the right patterns - some large scale refactorings may be in order.
