This project is not meant for re-use.
It is open source to make it easy to contribute. We provide no support if you want to run your own, and will do breaking changes without notice.
Check out Private Packagist if you want to host your own packages.
These steps are provided for development purposes only.
- PHP for the web app
- NPM for the frontend build
- Symfony CLI to run the web server
- MySQL (or Docker) for the main data store
- Redis (or Docker) for some functionality (favorites, download statistics)
- git / svn / hg depending on which repositories you want to support
- Clone the repository
- Install dependencies:
composer install npm install
- Start the web server:
- Start MySQL & Redis:
docker-compose up -d # or somehow run MySQL & Redis on localhost without docker
- Create 2 databases:
packagist- for the web app
packagist_test- for running the tests
bin/console doctrine:database:create bin/console doctrine:database:create --env=test
- Setup the database schema:
- Run a CRON job
bin/console packagist:run-workersto make sure packages update.
npm run buildor
npm run devto build (or build&watch) css/js files.
