RAM Docs

Installation and Usage

The steps below will walk you through setting up RAM Docs. To install RAM itself, head over to the ram-backend repository!

Install Project Dependencies

To set up the development environment for this website, you'll need to install the following on your system:

  • Node v6 (To manage multiple node versions we recommend nvm)
  • Yarn Package manager

Install Application Dependencies

If you use nvm, activate the desired Node version:

nvm install

Install Node modules:

yarn install

Usage

Config files

All the config files can be found in app/assets/scripts/config. After installing the projects there will be 3 main files:

  • local.js - Used only for local development. On production this file should not exist or be empty.
  • staging.js
  • production.js

The production.js file serves as base and the other 2 will override it as needed:

  • staging.js will be loaded whenever the env variable DS_ENV is set to staging.
  • local.js will be loaded if it exists.

The following options must be set: (The used file will depend on the context):

Example:

module.exports = {
};

Starting the app

yarn run serve

Compiles the sass files, javascript, and launches the server making the site available at http://localhost:3000/ The system will watch files and execute tasks whenever one of them changes. The site will automatically refresh since it is bundled with livereload.

Deployment

To prepare the app for deployment run:

yarn run build

This will package the app and place all the contents in the dist directory. The app can then be run by any web server.
