This is the code for the website.



The below commands must be run when either the content changes or there are updates in the translations in Transifex. You'll first need to install the Transifex client.

Downloading web site code

Make sure you have git installed.

git clone
cd dcrweb;

Importing new translations and content updates

When translations are added/updated in Transifex, pull the updates:

npm run transifex:pull

When you run this for the first time, you'll be asked to log in with your Transifex username/password.

To push the changes to staging:

git commit -m'Translation update'
git push origin

This triggers the update on the staging site, which will be rebuilt usually in a few minutes (give it 5):

Updating the message catalog

When the master content changes in the HTML files, you'll need to re-generate the message catalog and push it to Transifex so that translators can update the localized message catalogs:

npm run transifex:push

Adding a new language

  1. Add the new language in Transifex
  2. In the repository folder, run npm run transifex:pull, add the new .po file to git: git add i18n/po/<LC>.po
  3. Enable it for publishing on the staging site: add it to src/i18n/languagemap.development.txt
  4. Update language selector in src/index.html
  5. Commit files to git + push to repo

Publishing a language

Once you're happy with the translation in a language, you'll need to enable it for production.

  1. Add language to src/i18n/languagemap.production.txt
  2. Edit #language-selector in src/index.html
  3. Commit files to git + push to repo


A Docker configuration is included for building the deployable images of dcrweb.


  • docker

Building the Docker images

git clone
cd dcrweb

This builds a docker container which can then be run using:

docker run -d --rm -p <local port>:80 decred/dcrweb:latest

Push to Dockerhub

docker login

Enter your Docker HUB credentials that has write access to the decred/dcrweb repository.

docker push decred/dcrweb

Run in production

docker pull decred/dcrweb
docker run -d --rm -p <local port>:80 decred/dcrweb:latest

Runs the docker image exposing the specified local port.


  1. Install prerequisites:

    • Node v8 (preferably via nvm)
    • grunt
    • Docker
  2. Clone repo

    git clone
    cd dcrweb
    yarn install
  3. Start development web server:

    yarn dev
  4. Start file watcher:
