GLPI Plugin Directory

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/glpi-project/plugins

This is the server side and webapp of GLPI Plugin Directory.

It went on production mode on Teclib servers since GLPi project is managed by the company, see http://plugins.glpi-project.org . if you want to collaborate, don't hesitate to fork this project, there is a lot you might want to do.

Installation

First

clone this repository where you are able to, and serve it via PHP and a local webserver (Apache currently has a better support).

cd somewhere
git clone git@github.com:glpi-project/plugins.git glpi-plugin-directory

Then, Fetch PHP Components used by server side

in the folder where you cloned this repo, run

cd api
composer install

Fetch frontend libraries / Build web application

in the folder where you cloned this repo, run

cd frontend
npm install
bower install
grunt build

Create MySQL database

First, create a MySQL database, and user, which you grant CRUD and CREATE rights on the database.

mysql -u <usercreated> -p<password> <database>
CREATE DATABASE <database> CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON glpiplugindirectory.* TO '<usercreated>'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '<password>'

in the folder where you cloned this repo, run

mysql -u <usercreated> -p<password> <database> < misc/structure.sql

be sure to replace <usercreated> <password> and <database> with the database and user you created previously.

Create config files

You must create api/config.php file and frontend/app/scripts/conf.js
Both of them have example provided that you can use to start a new one.

  • api/config.example.php
  • frontend/app/scripts/conf.example.js

Loading Indepnet data from CSV file (Optional)

This is the original list of XML Plugin declaration files Indepnet was tracking, it is the the data on which we built this new plugin directory. We added a way to copy that original list into a fresh database, described here

in the folder where you cloned this repo, run

php misc/loadcsv.php -h hostname -d database -u username -p password -f misc/indepnet.csv

you can give the indepnet.csv file provided in misc with the -f command line option shown in the example before.

Run the BackgroundTasks

Manually

php misc/run_tasks.php

will run all the default tasks

  • updating all the plugins if possible
  • deleting expired access tokens
  • deleting lonely refresh tokens
  • deleting lonely sessions
php misc/run_tasks.php -k genericobject -t update

will run the update of the genericobject plugin.

Here, the -k and -t options helps when you want per example to update a specific plugin from the command line.

php misc/run_tasks.php -i 44 -t update

will run the update of the plugin which has id 44.

Here the -i option, is used, used to select a plugin by it's database id.

With crontab

It is up to you to use a crontab entry to run this script, per example once every hour. Specify no arguments to the run_tasks commands in the crontab, this way all the normal tasks will run.

Configuration (Via Apache HTTPd)

This is a configuration example for Apache HTTPd :

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName glpiplugindirectory
    DocumentRoot "/path/to/frontend/dist"

    <Directory "/path/to/glpi-plugin-directory">
       Options FollowSymLinks
       AllowOverride None
       Require all granted
    </Directory>

    <Location /api>
       RewriteEngine On

       # Cross domain access (you need apache header mod : a2enmod headers)
       Header add Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
       Header add Access-Control-Allow-Headers "origin, x-requested-with, content-type, x-lang, x-range, accept"
       Header add Access-Control-Allow-Methods "PUT, GET, POST, DELETE, OPTIONS"
       Header add Access-Control-Expose-Headers "content-type, content-range, accept-range"

       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
       RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]
    </Location>
    Alias /api "/path/to/api"

    ErrorLog "/usr/local/var/log/apache2/glpiplugindirectory.error.log"
    CustomLog "/usr/local/var/log/apache2/glpiplugindirectory.access.log" common
</VirtualHost>

Configuration (Via NGINX)

This is a configuration example for NGINX :

upstream php {
    server unix:/var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
}

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name glpiplugindirectory;

    root /path/to/glpi-plugin-directory/frontend/dist;
    index index.html;
}

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name api.glpiplugindirectory;

    root /path/to/glpi-plugin-directory/api;

    add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*";
    add_header Access-Control-Allow-Headers "origin, x-requested-with, content-type, x-lang, x-range, accept";
    add_header Access-Control-Allow-Methods "PUT, GET, POST, DELETE, OPTIONS";
    add_header Access-Control-Expose-Headers "content-type, content-range, accept-range";

    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
    index index.php;

    location ~ \.php$ {
             #NOTE: You should have "cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0;" in php.ini
             include fastcgi.conf;
             fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
             fastcgi_pass php;
    }
}

Start to develop

If you wanted to serve glpi-plugin-directory on a server, and simply want to use the functionality provided by it, the previous configuration works all fine, but due to cross-domain related issues, a developer currently needs to use the node-js/yeoman/grunt based development server, BUT, he also need to serve it proxied by the Apache instance, this way, the webapp and api are served on the same /etc/hosts domain (which is what a web developer might use to handle multiple local projects).

There is the new configuration for developers

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName glpiplugindirectory;
    ProxyRequests off
    ProxyPass /app/ http://127.0.0.1:9000/
    ProxyPassReverse /app/ http://127.0.0.1:9000/

     <Proxy *>
         Order deny,allow
         Allow from all
     </Proxy>

    <Directory "/Users/me/Code/glpi-plugin-directory">
       Options FollowSymLinks
       AllowOverride None
       Require all granted
    </Directory>

    # This force the Authorization header to be passed to PHP
    SetEnvIf Authorization "(.+)" HTTP_AUTHORIZATION=$1

    <Location /api>
       Header add Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
       Header add Access-Control-Allow-Headers "origin, x-requested-with, content-type, x-lang, x-range, authorization"
       Header add Access-Control-Allow-Methods "PUT, GET, POST, DELETE, OPTIONS"
       Header add Access-Control-Expose-Headers "content-type, content-Range, accept-range"
       RewriteEngine On
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
       RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]
    </Location>
    Alias /api "/Users/me/Code/glpi-plugin-directory/api"

    ErrorLog "/usr/local/var/log/apache2/glpiplugindirectory.error.log"
    CustomLog "/usr/local/var/log/apache2/glpiplugindirectory.access.log" common
</VirtualHost>

As the web app, in this case, is served through the development server, the developer might also need to run it ...

cd frontend
grunt serve

Everything should turn fine.

NOTE: The original Apache configuration might be outdated, this one is up-to-date, what changed is especially the SetEnvIf for Authorization header, and the Access-Control- directives that are used.
