This README outlines the details of collaborating on this Ember application. A short introduction of this app could easily go here.

Dev environment

Docker version

Getting working dev environment used to be problematic, because parts of the web still rely on deprecated libraries. For that reason, Dockerfile and docker-compose file were created to make it incredibly easier. Now, all you have to do is have docker setup (which is really easy) and run:

git clone
cd web-frontend
git submodule init
git submodule update

To build and start server run the following line. The first run will take ~10 minutes to install everything thats needed, each following build should take about ~15 seconds.

COMPOSE_DOCKER_CLI_BUILD=1 DOCKER_BUILDKIT=1 environment_selector=remote_dev docker-compose up -d --build ember_server
# DOCKER_BUILDKIT is used for building to dist folder. If you also use it for server container, it will use the existing cache.
# If you don't care about cache, the following should work just fine:
# docker-compose up -d --build

To build the version for test server and place it in dist folder run the following line. If you want to build for production server, use production instead of remote_dev.

DOCKER_BUILDKIT=1; environment_selector=remote_dev; rm -r dist/ || docker build --target build_dist_stage -o dist --build-arg environment_selector=$environment_selector .


Docker on Windows - no auto rebuild

Just one small problem - on Docker for Windows notifications on shared drives/volumes are not fully implemented. That means watchman won't automatically rebuild. After every change you need to manually run the docker-compose up -d --build (or alternative) and do rebuild of the ember website. All docker things are cached, so only the website itself will rebuild.

Non-docker version


You will need the following things properly installed on your computer. You also need compatible versions not only between those prerequisites, but also with libraries. We strongly recomend using the docker version, or at least looking to it's files to see which versions are used.


  • git clone <repository-url> this repository
  • change into the new directory
  • npm install
  • bower install
  • git submodule init
  • git submodule update

Running / Development

  • ember server
  • Visit your app at http://localhost:4200.
  • If you want to be able to access content from backend on test server (kyzikos) you either need to be in MU network or on the MU VPN. Also, kyzikos has CORS, so make sure that you access your local frontend on localhost:4200, not on

Code Generators

Make use of the many generators for code, try ember help generate for more details

Running Tests

  • ember test
  • ember test --server


  • ember build --environment=production (production for
  • ember build --environment=remote_dev (development for


  • Run ./ to deploy at
  • Run ./ to deploy at


  • We do not use tabs.
  • Tab = 4 spaces.
