Install the app
Clone this repository and
meteor npm install in it. This will install all dependencies coming from npm including the ones required for development.
Start the app
meteor in the folder to start the app in development mode.
-p 3456for running on a different port than the default 3000.
Meteor will automatically push any change on the code to the browser while you keep the meteor dev server running.
Running blockchain locally
You can run a blockchain locally on your PC to avoid sending transactions onto the live network. Follow instructions in dtube/avalon, then just change API to 'localhost:3001' in the settings page to point your UI to your development chain.
Working with Uploads
For doing anything on the upload side, it is strongly recommended to run your own dtube/ipfs-uploader. Once running, simply turn the
localhost setting to
client/settings.js and it will upload locally instead of our production servers.
Working on the Player
As you can see, we use the embed directly available on emb.d.tube. This is the dtube/embed repository. Feel free to clone it and directly point the
client/views/commons/videos/player.js to your file:// version of the player if you want to make changes that include the player.
Working with pre-rendering for bots
The dtube/minidtube repository is responsible for all the pre-rendering and serving a decent version of d.tube to bots which normally wouldn't be able to.

If you are using windows, the
meteor npm seems to be buggy at times. You can try using the normal
npm instead if you have that installed.
After each meteor or package.json update, you will need to re-run
meteor npm install
