🌲 daily.dev projects
daily.dev might look simple on the surface but actually, it is powered by a complex and robust system of different applications. It contains several services, some are big, others are micro and easy to maintain. Below is the list of different projects that we maintain under daily.dev.

docs - This is the repository for official product documentation of daily.dev.

🚀 Running daily.dev locally
Let's setup daily.dev locally. First, you need to setup the services required to run the daily.dev applications, then you can run the application you want. Follow up the setups below to quickly get started.
⚙️ Setting Up Daily Services
You can go the easy way by using Gitpod or follow the instructions below.
→ STEP #0
- Make sure docker-compose is installed on your machine. Take a look at the official guide for installation. After installation, run the following command in your terminal for a double check.
docker compose version # Docker Compose version v2.10.0 // Expected result
→ STEP #1
Clone the apps repo.
→ STEP #2
daily.dev services are fully dockerized and publicly available on a Google Cloud Registry (GCR) repository. We are going to use them!
The first step is to pull and run the docker images. Thanks to docker-compose, network and environment variables are preconfigured and ready to go.
Navigate to the cloned repository and make sure Docker is running on your machine. After that run the following command to run all daily services:
docker compose pull && docker compose up
The command will take a while depending on your internet speed.
→ STEP #3
Now we need to apply the migrations on our databases so they will have the latest schema:
docker exec apps-daily-api-1 node ./node_modules/typeorm/cli.js migration:run -d src/data-source.js # ... // Expected result # Migration PostToc1623847855158 has been executed successfully. # query: COMMIT
→ STEP #4
The last step is to populate your database using the seed data. All you need to do is, run the following command in your terminal:
docker exec apps-daily-api-1 node bin/import.js # importing Source // Expected result # importing Post # importing Keyword # importing PostKeyword # done
Now, you have all the required services running. Each project's repo explains what services are needed and how to get started with them.
Note that currently, not all services are ready (or needed) for local environment so Daily Redirector and Daily Monetization services are not available for you.
It means that if you click on an article you will get error 404 and that you will not see ads on your local environment.

Now, let's quickly set up daily.dev apps.
→ STEP #1
Run the following commands in your terminal to bootstrap.
Yes, we use
lerna for this purpose.
npm i -g lerna lerna bootstrap # ... // Expected result # lerna success Bootstrapped 5 packages
→ STEP #2
packages/webapp in the
apps folder. Run the following command to start the webapp in development mode. It will watch for all the file changes.
npm run dev
→ STEP #3
packages/extension in the
apps folder. Run the following command to start the extension in development mode. It will watch for all the file changes and generate the output in
npm run dev:chrome
