Interactive State Water Plan (ISWP) 2017

Web application for the 2017 Texas State Water Plan.



  1. Install Node >=8.9.2
  2. Install AWS Command Line Interface and configure with AWS credentials (IAM Key, Secret, Region).
  3. Install Yarn >=1.1
  4. Download a copy of the water plan data sqlite3 database ( and place it at ./src/app/db/cache.db
  5. Install dependencies: cd into ./src and run yarn install
  6. Install the custom Webfont by following the instructions in 'Webfont' section below


Download a copy of the licensed web font we are using from S3 at tnris-droc/iswp/2017/ and unzip the contents to app/public/static/webfonts/ (this requires credentials to our S3 bucket). If you are using a fork of this you can just remove the custom font usage in layout.swig and in main.scss.

This command should do it for you (requires aws cli and credentials): cd into ./src and run aws s3 cp s3://tnris-droc/iswp/2017/; unzip -d app/public/static/webfonts/; rm


All commands run from src directory: cd src from project root Upon the first local build, errors on startup may be related to the initial webpack assests not existing yet. If you encounter errors on the initial build, try running yarn run webpack and then continue to run the commands below.

  • yarn run dev-start in a terminal to continuously build client-side scripts and css and serve the application

  • yarn test to run the test scripts

Production Build

  1. Set NODE_ENV to "production"
  2. Run npm install --production to install dependencies
  3. Run npm run webpack to build production client side assets
  4. Run the application with npm start. You can optionally set the APP_PORT environment variable to specify the port to listen to, otherwise 3333 will be used.


  1. run the app locally via instructions above
  2. test locally to ensure changes are ready for production
  3. commit all changes and merge into the 'master' branch. the ci/cd build will automatically rebuild and deploy the application into production
