1. I'm on Linux and see a ENOSPC error when running the client with Gulp

There's a known issue with Gulp watch that is discussed in this Stack Overflow post

If you run the following command it should resolve this issue:

echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf && sudo sysctl -p

2. I'm on Mac and see pg_config executable not found when pip installing requirements.txt

Unfortunately, on Mac, the latest psycopg release requires postgresql to be intalled locally to build, as described in this Stack Overflow post

Easiest way to resolve to to install postgres with Homebrew

brew install postgresql

3. I'm on Mac and see [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] when authenticating locally

This is super annoying (as it works fine on Win and Lin) I couldn't find any elegant solution other than monkey patching my local request.py file, at line 1363, replacing https_open to look like this. Some background here Better solutions are most welcome, please submit if you have them 😄

def https_open(self, req):
    ctx = ssl.create_default_context()
    ctx.check_hostname = False
    ctx.verify_mode = ssl.CERT_NONE

    return self.do_open(http.client.HTTPSConnection, req,
            context=ctx, check_hostname=self._check_hostname)

4. I can't login locally when not running the API locally

Your login callback will be redirected relatively to the API URL. If you running the client locally but not pointing to a local API, this means that you cannot login locally. To work around this, you can do the following:

  • open your developer tools in your browser and watch the network tab
  • click the login button and login to OSM. After a successful login it will redirect you where the API lives.
  • look for the URL "...../authorized?username=username-here&session_token=token-here&ng=0&redirect_to=/" in your network tab in your developer tools. Take the relative part of the URL and point it to localhost. E.g. "localhost:3000/authorized?username=username-here&session_token=token-here&ng=0&redirect_to=/".
  • now you should be logged in locally
You can’t perform that action at this time.
You signed in with another tab or window. Reload to refresh your session. You signed out in another tab or window. Reload to refresh your session.
