Hexpm

Build Status

Contributing

To contribute to Hexpm you need to properly set up your development environment.

Also see the client repository: hex. The client uses hexpm for integration tests, so hexpm needs to support all versions the client supports. Travis tests ensures that tests are run on all supported versions.

Setup

  1. Run mix setup to install dependencies, create and seed database etc
  2. Run mix test
  3. Run iex -S mix phx.server and visit http://localhost:4000/

After this succeeds you should be good to go!

See setup alias in mix.exs and sections below for more information or when you run into issues.

PostgreSQL Modules And Version

PostgreSQL version should be >= 9.4, as Hexpm uses the jsonb type, that is available from PostgreSQL 9.4 onward.

Hexpm requires the PostgreSQL modules pg_trgm and pgcrypto to be available.

This is located in the "postgresql-contrib" package, however the package name can vary depending on your operating system. If the module is not installed the ecto migrations will fail.

Database

By default, Hexpm connects to a localhost PostgreSQL database hexpm_dev using the username postgres with the password postgres.

Create the database and user 'postgres' if not already done:

CREATE USER postgres;
ALTER USER postgres PASSWORD 'postgres';
CREATE DATABASE hexpm_dev;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE hexpm_dev TO postgres;
ALTER USER postgres WITH SUPERUSER;

-- if you also want to setup the test database
CREATE DATABASE hexpm_test;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE hexpm_test TO postgres;

Now you are fine to run the ecto migrations:

mix ecto.migrate

Sample Data

Using the following command you can seed your local Hexpm instance with some sample data:

mix run priv/repo/seeds.exs

Node Dependencies

For assets compilation we need to install Node dependencies:

cd assets && yarn install

If you don't have yarn installed, cd assets && npm install will work too.

Running Hexpm

Once the database is set up you can start Hexpm:

# with console
iex -S mix phx.server

# without console
mix phx.server

Hexpm will be available at http://localhost:4000/.
