Tradenomiitti Build Status

Tradenomiitti is a social web service for members of the trade union Tradenomiliitto. It is up and running at and you can read more about it in the press release (in Finnish) and more about why it's open source the blog post

A fork for a different community, the members of organization Mothers in Business, is running at and you can read more about that in the info page.


Server installation

Server installation for Tradenomiitti uses Ansible. You need to have a recent enough version of Ansible locally, at least which is included in Ubuntu 16.04 does not work. The included install configuration assumes Ubuntu with passwordless sudo access over SSH with the user ubuntu and Python 2 installed on the server and symlinked to python. The server needs to have a public IP and a public domain pointing at it, or else Let's encrypt will fail.

You can install servers by running (replace ENV with dev, qa, or prod - defaults to dev if ENV_TO_DEPLOY is not specified):

npm install
cp /path/to/sideloaded/assets/* conf/assets/ # we don't want fonts/images/etc in repo
npm run preansible
$EDITOR conf/inventory.ini # edit with your favorite editor
ENV_TO_DEPLOY=ENV npm run serverinstallbase
git remote add ENV ubuntu@SERVER:/srv/tradenomiitti.git
git push ENV master # for each ENV

Actual deployment

Deployment of a new version is done using git.


git remote add ENV ubuntu@SERVER/srv/tradenomiitti.git

To deploy:

ENV_TO_DEPLOY=ENV npm run deploy

To upload static assets and deploy:

ENV_TO_DEPLOY=ENV npm run uploadanddeploy

Local development

  • Install and set up PostgreSQL.
    • Set up databases tradenomiitti and tradenomiitti-test
  • Install graphicsmagick
    • It's under that name in most package managers (Ubuntu, Arch, brew for macOS)
  • If you didn't already do it above, run npm install and copy assets to conf/assets/

Compile elm & scss

npm run compilelocal

Run the server with full integrations:

export db_user= 
export db_password= 
export environment=development
export SMTP_HOST=
export SMTP_USER=
export SMTP_TLS=
export MAIL_FROM=

npm start

Run with minimal integrations and seeded mock data.

export db_user=
export db_password=
export environment=development
export TEST_LOGIN=true

npm run seed-db

npm start

You can click "Kirjaudu" to login as Tradenomi1 test user. You can also open http://localhost:3000/kirjaudu/1 or http://localhost:3000/kirjaudu/2 to use either of the two test user accounts: no SSO or members registry API required.

Run tests:

npm test
npm run testFrontend

Removal of profile

Replace REMOTE_ID with the remote ID you want to remove.

Make user anonymous, but keep ads and replies

\set remote_id '\'' REMOTE_ID '\''
update users set data = '{ "name": "[poistettu]" }', settings='{}' where remote_id = :remote_id;
delete from skills where user_id = (select id from users where remote_id = :remote_id);
delete from user_educations where user_id = (select id from users where remote_id = :remote_id);
delete from user_special_skills where user_id = (select id from users where remote_id = :remote_id);
delete from sessions where user_id = (select id from users where remote_id = :remote_id);
update users set remote_id = -1 where remote_id = :remote_id;

Completely remove user and all their content, including others' replies to their ads

delete from users where remote_id = 'REMOTE_ID';
