Development

Quick start for code developers

Prerequisites:

Meteor automatically installs a hidden NodeJS v8, Python v2.7 and MongoDB v3.6 to be used when you run your app in development mode using the meteor command.

Now just clone and start the app:

git clone https://github.com/RocketChat/Rocket.Chat.git
cd Rocket.Chat
meteor npm install
meteor npm start

If you are not a developer and just want to run the server - see deployment methods.

Branching Model

See Branches and Releases.

It is based on Gitflow Workflow, reference section below is derived from Vincent Driessen at nvie.

See also this Git Workflows Comparison for more details.

Translations

We are experimenting with Lingohub. If you want to help, send an email to support at rocket.chat to be invited to the translation project.

How to Contribute

Already a JavaScript developer? Familiar with Meteor? Pick an issue, push a PR and instantly become a member of Rocket.Chat's international contributors community.

A lot of work has already gone into Rocket.Chat, but we have much bigger plans for it!
