Localdev setup

  1. Run npm install in the root directory of front-end

  2. Make changes to your code

  3. Build assets using docker-compose run app npm run build-production

  4. Refresh the page NOTE: If you want to update the assets for MTS, the easiest way is to take the Styles.css file

    front-end/dist/assets/stylesheets/styles.css and copy it's content to

mot/mot-web-frontend/public/assets/stylesheets/styles.css and then refresh the page.

For the old stylesheets:

  1. Modify the relevant sass file under mot/mot-static
  2. Run: sass app.scss app.scss This will generate a new app.css which will contain your changes (even if you modified a different sass file such as buttons.scss in mot-static)
  3. Copy the newly generated app.css file intomot/mot-web-frontend/public/css/
  4. Refresh the page.

Deploy to Jenkins

  1. Update front-end/composer.json with an incremented front-end version number.
  2. Run composer update to update the composer.lock file
  3. Update package.json and package.lock with an incremented version number.
  4. Commit your changes
  5. Run git tag -a 1.5.x -m "Updated assets" to tag your latest commit
  6. Run git push origin 1.5.x to push the new asset version
  7. Under web-frontend/CVR/MOTH/MOTR update the composer dependancy to point to the new version.
  8. Run the Jenkins build.

Further details and guidance for using this kit for prototypes and releases for MTS can be found internally in Confluence by searching for front-end.
