Betterplace Egypt

Aggregates and analyses data about crowd-funded projects in Egypt using the betterplace.org API

Setting Up

Clone the repository to your web directory.

git clone https://github.com/abdelm/betterplace.git

Assuming you have Composer installed, run the command inside the betterplace directory to install application dependencies:

composer install

Enivornment Configuration

Make a copy of the .env.example file and rename it to .env in order to modify your environment configuration including your database details.

To generate a new key for your application, use the following command:

php artisan key:generate

Simply set the APP_KEY variable to the key you just generated and modify the default database configuration to match your own. Also, make sure the directories storage and bootstrap/cache are writable by your web server.

Migration

Run all outstanding migrations available in the application after changing your database config using

php artisan migrate

Virtual Host

Add a new virtual host to point to the public web directory for Laravel by modifying the httpd-vhosts.conf if you're using Apache or by adding a new file to your sites-available directory if you're using ngnix.

Apache Example:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "/path/to/betterplace/public/"
    ServerName betterplace.app
    ErrorLog "logs/betterplace.app-error.log"
    CustomLog "logs/betterplace.app-access.log" common
</VirtualHost>

nginx Example:

server {
  listen   80;

  root /path/to/betterplace/public;
  index index.html index.htm index.php;

  server_name betterplace.app;
}

Adjust your /etc/hosts to add a new record for the server name you chose, for example:

127.0.0.1 betterplace.app

Scheduling

The application uses Laravel's built in scheduling tasks to update all project data and opinions for each individual project. In order to use Laravel's scheduling task, you only need to add one cron entry to call Laravel's scheduling system:

* * * * * php /path/to/artisan schedule:run 1>> /dev/null 2>&1
