Atom Packages Directory
This is the application to maintain http://atom-packages.directory. The package directory itself is based on data from https://atom.io/packages/ and uses groups of keywords in categories to present them in browsable directory. Atom is an awesome text-editor, but it's true strength comes from the thousands of packages, the directory makes it easier to find them. The directory also brings forward a showcase of what Atom can be used for.
The site is built as a static page deployed on GitHub Pages. It is built with Sinatra and RethinkDB as a data storage. Even though it is deployed as a static page it has characteristics of a web application, like an API for the resources and a database in the back, this is only to make it possible to work with the amount of data in a reasonably performance.
$ git clone https://github.com/bastilian/atom-packages.directory.git $ cd atom-packages.directory $ docker-compose run site rake site:bootstrap # Takes a while... $ docker-compose up site
Once the bootstrap process is finished and the site is up, head to your browser and go to
http://DOCKER_IP and you should see exactly the same as on the live site.
Alternatively you can setup your system to run the application locally on your computer outside of a container. The requirements follow.
- RethinkDB (2.3.1 or later)
- Ruby (2.2.3 or later)
- NodeJS for Bower (1.7.9 or later)
There are a lot of ways to contribute and get involved. One is to put an effort in establishing new categories if you find one is missing, or it could be better structured or improve the site overall. For this you should setup a local development environment.
Another way is to assign keywords to packages that have none by opening a pull request and add them to their repositories
package.json. Every package page lists it's keywords as well as a link that brings you directly to it's repository on GitHub and opens
package.json to edit.
