BEdita Manager

Github Actions Github Actions Scrutinizer Code Quality

Official Backend Admin WebApp for BEdita4 API.



  • Create project via composer
composer create-project bedita/manager

This will create a new manager folder and install composer dependencies. If you are using a .zip or .tar.gz release file you just need to unpack it and then run composer install. Run same command if you do a git clone on this repo.

  • Build JS/CSS bundles with yarn from manager folder
yarn && yarn build
  • Configure BEdita 4 API base URL and API KEY in config/.env like:
# set BEDITA4 base URL
export BEDITA_API="{bedita-4-url}"
# set BEDITA4 API KEY (optional)
export BEDITA_API_KEY="{bedita4-api-key}"

To test the webapp you can simply run builtin webserver from manager folder like this

bin/cake server

And then point your browser to http://localhost:8765/

For any other use than a simple test we recommend to configure your preferred web server like Nginx/Apache and point to webroot/ as vhost document root.


Pull official image

Get latest offical image build from Docker Hub

docker pull bedita/manager

Build image

If you want to build an image from local sources you can do it like this from root folder:

docker build -t manager-local .

You may of course choose whatever name you like for the generated image instead of manager-local.


Run a Docker image setting API base url and API KEY like this:

docker run -p 8080:80 \
    --env BEDITA_API={bedita-api-url} --env BEDITA_API_KEY={bedita-api-key} \

Replace bedita/manager:latest with manager-local (or other chosen name) to lanch a local built image.

JS Development with webpack

Using .env

It's easy to configure config/.env to match your web server and proxy requirements, see below. (default proxy: localhost:8080, default server: localhost:3000)

# BE Manager Entry Point

# Proxy server

To start develop mode run

yarn develop

Using command parameters

yarn run develop --proxy localhost:8888 --server localhost:9000

Production build with Bundle Report

yarn run bundle-report

Run unit tests

To setup tests locally simply copy tests/.env.default to tests/.env and set env vars accordingly. To launch tests:

vendors/bin/phpunit [test folder or file, default '/tests']

To run those tests you may want to use a Docker image as BEdita4 API endpoint. For instance if you can pull a Docker image via docker pull bedita/bedita:4.0.0

Then you may run the image with

docker run -p 8090:80 --env BEDITA_ADMIN_USR=bedita --env BEDITA_ADMIN_PWD=bedita bedita/bedita:4.0.0

You can then set env vars accordingly like this:

export BEDITA_API="http://localhost:8090"
export BEDITA_ADMIN_USR="bedita"
export BEDITA_ADMIN_PWD="bedita"

and you're ready to go
