Bountysource Build Status IRC Network

If you want to make better, you've come to the right place.

Bountysource needs your help!

Bountysource is run by volunteers, so development activity can be sporadic (to put it nicely).

"How can I help?"

...with money

...with code

Developer Resources

Local Development Environment (OS X)

# dependencies
brew install rbenv
brew install mysql
brew install postgresql

# checkout latest code
git clone bountysource-core
cd bountysource-core

# make sure you're running ruby 2.4.3 (if not, mess with rbenv)
ruby -v

# install Gemfile
gem install bundler
bundle install

# setup ENV
cp .env
rake db:setup

# start server
./bin/rails s
open http://localhost:3000/

Hostnames for local development

We need different hostnames, so by default we use these:

Alternatively, you can add entries to /etc/hosts and change the hostnames in your .env file: www.bountysource.local api.bountysource.local salt.bountysource.local

Running tests

RAILS_ENV=test rake db:create

Local Development Environment with Docker (deprecated)

For self-hosting, you will need Docker and Docker Compose.

The following was tested on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It'll likely work very similar on other Linux distros.

First tip, don't bother with the Docker or Docker Compose packages that your distro provides (too old, superseded).

Simply install from upstream. To install Docker, do

curl -sSL | sh

To run Docker without superuser rights (sudo):

sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

Then install Python virtualenv:

sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv

Create a new virtualenv and install Docker Compose into that:

virtualenv ~/docker-compose
source ~/docker-compose/bin/activate
pip install docker-compose

Here are the versions I get:

(cpy361_6) oberstet@thinkpad-t430s:~/scm/oberstet/bountysource_core$ docker --version
Docker version 17.05.0-ce, build 89658be
(cpy361_6) oberstet@thinkpad-t430s:~/scm/oberstet/bountysource_core$ docker-compose --version
docker-compose version 1.13.0, build 1719ceb

Now pull and build all required Docker images:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml build

Then start the Docker containers relevant for the service:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml up -d

This should start 3 Docker containers (Bountysource, PostgreSQL and Sphinx):

(cpy361_6) oberstet@thinkpad-t430s:~/scm/oberstet/bountysource_core$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                           COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                    NAMES

27157a0c1ec0        leodido/sphinxsearch:2.2.9      ""             11 minutes ago      Up 11 minutes       9306/tcp, 9312/tcp       sphinx
45c0202dd08b        postgres                        "docker-entrypoint..."   11 minutes ago      Up 11 minutes       5432/tcp                 pgsql

Then open http://localhost:3000 in your browser.

You should see the Bountysource start page, something like this.

Running the unit tests

To run the unit tests:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f tasks.yml up test

You should see something like this in the end:

(cpy361_6) oberstet@thinkpad-t430s:~/scm/3rdparty/bountysource_core$ docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f tasks.yml up test
