Aqualink App

This is the main repository for the Aqualink Coral Monitoring Application.


Aqualink is a philanthropically funded system to help people manage their local marine ecosystems in the face of increasing Ocean temperatures. The system consists of satellite-connected underwater temperature sensors and photographic surveys to allow for remote collaboration with scientists across the world. If you are concerned about the effect of climate change on your local reef and want to do something about it then please apply to get a smart buoy for free.

The app is a monorepo managed by Lerna using Yarn Workspaces. Individual packages are found in the ./packages directory. The app has two primary components:

Commands can either be run for a specific package by changing to the package subdirectory and running them directly , or for the entire project by running them here in this directory.

Getting Started

To get started, run yarn install from this directory. This will install all dependencies for all the packages. You will also need to do some package-specific configuration such as setting up a .env file for environment variables

  • see the individual package READMEs for details on this process.

Running Commands

# Build all of the packages
yarn build

# Run tests for all of the packages
