Holiday tracking application, driven by DAML.
- Developer log here.
- Index of notes here.
- Model V1 spec here.
- Notes on command-line-interface
WARNING These notes are incomplete as the full dev process is still under development.
To run the application, you need:
- A "DAML Platform", i.e., a Ledger API server and a JSON API server, and
- The frontend code.
Note: If you are only working on the DAML models, you can skip all this and just run scenarios in the IDE as usual.
The frontend bit is still somewhat hazy at the moment, but it will surely
include some sort of auto-refreshing web server. That web server should be
configured to redirect
/parties to the JSON API
To start up the rest, you can run the following commands (each "box" in its own terminal):
- DAML Platform
To start a DAML Platform, run
This will start an in-memory sandbox, navigator and the JSON API. All DARs in
released folder will be deployed to the sandbox as well.
To shut down the DAML Platform, press
- Frontend dev server
When working with a fresh checkout of the repo or the first time after a,
the version in
SDK_VERSION has been bumped, you need to (re)generate
the TypeScript bindings for the DARs and install the
dependencies of the TypeScript frontend by running
DAML_SDK_VERSION=$(cat SDK_VERSION) daml codegen js -o daml2ts released/*.dar yarn install yarn workspaces run build
To start a development server for the frontend, run
cd ui yarn start
- Initialize the ledger (optional)
To create a few employees on the running DAVL ledger, run
yarn run davl-admin-cli v5-init --file test-setup.json
- Use the app
In order to log into the initialized ledger, you can use the the username/password combinations in the table below.
Once you're logged in, the app is, hopefully, self-explanatory.
The production setup is very similar to the dev setup; the main difference is
that the frontend files are minified and served by a static web server (nginx),
and each bit is wrapped in a Docker container for easy distribution. See the
azure-pipelines.yaml file for how the Docker images are built and the
infra/infra.tf file for how they are deployed.
