  1. Node.js


When running basic make tasks, make <task> is supported for *nix users and node make <task> is supported for Windows users.


npm install

[node] make test run

Stubbing "Popular Files"

There are two ways of using local popular.json data.

The first is to use the stubbed version in the test framework, this can be done by changing config/_config.yml and setting extras to stub...

# Turn stats on or off.
# - Use 'stub' to develop against test stub.
# extras: true
extras: stub

The second method would be to copy tests/stubs/popular.json to your system's temp directory as .popular.json – e.g. /tmp/.popular.json on Linux and Mac.

If you're unsure of the location of the temp directory on your system, do the following:

$ node
> os.tmpdir()


# for the following make tasks, you can also run:
# npm <task name>

# start server
node make start

# stop server
node make stop

# restart server
node make restart

# server status
node make status

# view logs
tail -f ./logs/server.log


Nginx tasks are only supported on *nix platforms which support make.

# generate nginx conf for your checkout and start nginx
node make nginx/start

# stop nginx
node make nginx/stop

# restart (stop then start) nginx
node make nginx/restart

# HUP nginx process to reload configs
node make nginx/reload

# to regnerate nginx.conf
rm nginx.conf
