The Datenanfragen.de website

This repository contains the source code for the Datenanfragen.de website.

Datenanfragen.de is an open source project by Datenanfragen.de e. V., a registered non-profit from Germany. We have made it our mission to help you exercise your right to privacy.
Through our website, we offer a generator for GDPR requests as well as access to our company and supervisory authority database (see this repository for the source behind this data) and comprehensive articles on the GDPR and privacy in general.

Live versions of the website are currently available in German and English.

Development

BrowserStack Status

Datenanfragen.de is designed as a static website, running on Hugo. For the JavaScript and (S)CSS, we use webpack.

To build the project, first install Hugo and Yarn. Then clone the repository and run yarn in the root directory to fetch all required dependencies. Then run the deploy script (./deploy.sh) to fetch the required resources from our data repository.
For development, use yarn dev to start the webpack file watcher which will automatically build the JS and (S)CSS files. For Hugo, use hugo server --baseURL "http://localhost" --disableFastRender --config config.toml,config-dev.toml,config-menus.toml.
The production builds are automatically done by Netlify using the deploy.sh script.

For testing, we use GitLab CI in combination with BrowserStack who kindly let us use their services.

Contributing

First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to contribute! Contributions are incredibly valuable for a project like ours.

The primary development is done on a private GitLab instance, with all commits being mirrored to the GitHub repository. We still welcome issues and pull requests through GitHub—thanks to the distributed nature of Git, it is easy for us to incorporate those.
