Brackets Extension Registry Build Status

A node.js-powered registry for Brackets extensions.


  1. npm install
  2. Create a config folder at the top level. (This will be ignored by git.)
  3. In the config folder, put your SSL cert or create a self-signed cert. The key should be in certificate.key and the cert should be in certificate.cert.
  4. Register a GitHub API client app. The callback URL must match the hostname of your server. For testing, you could enter https://localhost:4040/auth/github/callback.
  5. Also in the config folder, create a config.json file that contains:
    • sessionSecret - key to use for session hashing (required)
    • githubClientId - client id for registered GitHub app (required)
    • githubClientSecret - client secret for registered GitHub app (required)
    • hostname - hostname of the server, defaults to localhost
    • securePort - port to run HTTPS on, defaults to 4040
    • redirectPort - port to run HTTP on, just redirects to securePort, defaults to 4000
  6. npm start

Debugging REPL

There's an optional REPL available. To set it up:

  1. Add "repl": true to the config.json file.
  2. npm install repl-client -g
  3. npm start
  4. (in another terminal window) rc /tmp/repl/registry.sock

You'll have the Express "app" available as app, and the repository module available as repository.


This project uses a slightly modified version of DropzoneJS. If you need to update it, take a look at the dropzone.js file for CHANGED comments.
