Govcode

wercker status

What is this?

Govcode is an application that lists government open source projects. The purpose is to track what is being worked on and build analytics on top of it.

How to run it?

This application is structured as an API and a front end. The common, govcode and govcoded directories hold the API code while the front directory holds the front end.

All the steps mentioned below assume that you cloned the repo into a local folder.

To setup the API you need to do the following:

  1. Build the govcode tool:
cd govcode
go build
  1. Get a github api key, go to https://github.com/settings/applications#personal-access-tokens and click "generate new token".
  2. Set up a postgres database with a new user, password and db just for govcode.
  3. Set the environment variables for the Postgres database and Github API key:
export GH_KEY="xxx"
export PG_CONN_STR="postgres://govcode_user:govcode_pass@127.0.0.1/govcode_db?sslmode=disable"
  1. Migrate the database to build all the tables: ./govcode migrate
  2. (Optionally) Run an import to populate the DB: ./govcode import

Now we have a loaded DB with the settings in the environment.

To actually run the server:

cd govcoded
go run main.go

Or use gin:

go get github.com/codegangsta/gin
cd govcoded
gin

This should start the API on port 3000. You can change the port by setting the PORT environment variable.

To run the front end:

  1. Install required npm packages:
cd front
npm install
npm install -g bower
  1. Install the bower packages: bower install
  2. Run the server: grunt serve
  3. Go to http://localhost:9000 on your browser

If you see an error about compass you might need to install the compass ruby gem: gem install compass
