Northstar wercker status StyleCI

This is Northstar, the user & identity service. It's our single "source of truth" for member information. Northstar is built using Laravel 5.5, OAuth 2.0 Server, and MongoDB.

Getting Started

Check out the API Documentation to start using Northstar!


Fork and clone this repository, and add it to your Homestead.

# Install dependencies:
$ composer install && npm install

# Configure application & run migrations:
$ php artisan northstar:setup

# And finally, build the frontend assets:
$ npm run build

We follow Laravel's code style and automatically lint all pull requests with StyleCI. Be sure to configure EditorConfig to ensure you have proper indentation settings.


Performance & debug information is available at /__clockwork, or using the Chrome Extension.

You can seed the database with test data:

$ php artisan db:seed

You may run unit tests locally using PHPUnit:

$ phpunit

Consider writing a test case when adding or changing a feature. Most steps you would take when manually testing your code can be automated, which makes it easier for yourself & others to review your code and ensures we don't accidentally break something later on!

Security Vulnerabilities

We take security very seriously. Any vulnerabilities in Northstar should be reported to, and will be promptly addressed. Thank you for taking the time to responsibly disclose any issues you find.
