Brave Sync

Build Status

A client/server for Brave sync

Building

Install dependencies:

npm install

Build a bundled JS library for the client:

npm run build

Run the server:

npm run start

Testing

The sync client uses Browserify to transform Node js into browser js. To unittest the library in a browser (default: electron), run npm run browsertest. To test in a different browser run npm run browsertest -- --browser chrome. Results appear in both the browser inspector and your terminal.

To run tests in Node, just do npm test.

To do a basic client/server integration test against the production server, run npm run client and navigate to http://localhost:8000/). The page should not show any 'ERROR' messages and should end with 'success'.

Development

Server

server/config contains settings; defaults in defaults.json and environment variable mappings in custom-environment-variables.json.

To configure locally you can create a file config-dev.sh and source config-dev.sh when needed:

#!/bin/bash
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID="{stuff}"
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY="{secret stuff}"

Run the server with file watching and autoreloading:

npm run start-dev

Client integration

To integrate Brave sync on a platform (iOS, Android, Laptop):

  1. Make a new branch.
  2. In the main browser process, implement an IPC message handler as specified in client/constants/messages.js.
  3. If webviews on your platform do not support chrome.ipcRenderer.{send, on}, edit client/polyfill/chrome.js as needed to polyfill this functionality.

Building for browser-laptop

  1. Make sure this repo is checked out next to browser-laptop/
  2. Checkout the feature/syncing branch in browser-laptop
  3. npm run dist
  4. If developing, do npm start in browser-laptop. Console messages from the sync client will be logged in Library/Application Support/brave-development/chrome-debug.log.

Tests

To run tests you need to configure these environment variables:

  • AWS_REGION
  • AWS_S3_BUCKET
  • AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
  • AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
