Clone the repo locally then install all the dependencies using NPM
$ git clone https://github.com/dan-divy/spruce.git $ cd spruce $ npm i
Before running, we need to add the Instgram and Google API Credentials to the project. Under the
config directory of the repo, you will find
google.js. We need to add the
<host>:<port> with our own API credentials
/** REPLACE YOUR API CREDENTIALS HERE **/ var in_client_id = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX', // <CLIENT_ID> in_client_secret = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX', // <CLIENT_SECRET>
var in_redirect_uri = "http://localhost:80/account/oauth/:service";
Finally start the MongoDB server in a seperate bash/pm2
and then start the spruce server via
$ npm start
