Hermes Ordering System

by Ben Turner @Xeus

Description

Final project for Chris Kairalla's Redial class at NYU-ITP, spring 2012.

Menu system using Node.js, MongoDB, jQuery. Customers at bars, restaurants, whatever dial in to the phone number on a screen or on a table to make their orders, play trivia, read the news, or be social with other tables/stations nearby.

The phone as a remote instead of relying on touchscreens.

Best part? Everyone's orders are broken up for everyone to pay separately.

Credits

Thanks to the following for their code:

Installation

Open your terminal/shell/command prompt. Make sure you have Node.js (http://nodejs.org/) installed.

Clone the repository. Type git clone git@github.com:Xeus/Hermes-Ordering-System.git in the parent directory you wish to install "./Hermes-Ordering-System" to.

See package.json for dependencies. Type npm install to install them. Uses MongoDB and the Heroku toolbelt.

Set up your .env file to include your MONGOLAB_URI variable, which has your user/pass to connect to MongoDB. You'll also need to include your gmail user/pass in the .env file as well if you want order confirmation emails sent. The .env should also contain variables for the to, from, and cc email addresses. Finally, it will include a SALT phrase for encryption. It should look like this:

MONGOLAB_URI=mongodb://username:password@127.0.0.1:27017/hermes
GMAIL_USER=yourgmailusername
GMAIL_PASS=yourgmailpassword
MAIL_FROM=email@email.com
MAIL_TO=email@email.com
MAIL_CC=email@email.com
SALT=secretphrase

Type foreman start in the ./Hermes-Ordering-System directory to start up the node.js process.

Connect to http://localhost:5000 to get your order started!
