This is the source code for the Joind.in website - a resource set up to allow events to get real-time feedback from those attending. It also gives speakers a way to claim and track their presentations over time.
This README includes instructions for setting up joind.in. You can either install joind.in on an existing PHP platform, or use our vagrant setup. Note: contributors should start at the Contributor readme (CONTRIBUTING.md).
Quick Start - Existing Platforms
Create a vhost entry for the site. The docroot should be
Create directories for user-added content.
mkdir src/system/cache/ctokens && chown apache:apache src/system/cache/ctokens
(or whatever user and group your web server runs as)
Create a MySQL database with username and password. Use a database name of 'joindin'
Create configuration files for database and config (based on the .dist templates):
cp src/system/application/config/database.php.dist src/system/application/config/database.php cp src/system/application/config/config.php.dist src/system/application/config/config.php
Edit these files as appropriate!
If you are using Fast-CGI you will need to edit the .htaccess file Change lines 17 & 24 from:
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1
Also you will need to amend the config.php so that the uri_protocol setting ends up as follows:
$config['uri_protocol'] = "QUERY_STRING";
Initialise, patch, and populate the database. The database files are no longer part of this repository; they live in the API repo https://github.com/joindin/joindin-api which you will also need to fork and clone. Within that codebase, you can run the following command to populate your database, using the credentials you created in the previous step.
scripts/patchdb.sh -t /path/to/joindin-api -d joindin -u username -p password -i
If you are using Windows And/Or Git bash you may see an error regarding "o being an invalid option" when running step 6.
To fix this, you will need to visit http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/grep.htm and download the binaries and dependencies zip files Extract the contents of the bin folder from the zip files to the bin folder of your Git install and restart Git Bash.
This should also work for git via the commandline (cmd.exe) but cannot be guaranteed in that environment.
Create some sample data to get you started, this tool is also under the API repo. Look at
tools/dbgen/README.mdfor information about this excellent tool
To enable useful error messages, add the following to your
SetEnv JOINDIN_DEBUG on
Enjoy the site!
Quick Start - Using Vagrant
** WARNING: there have been some repo changes (mostly moving the API and db patches to https://github.com/joindin/joindin-api) which may mean you need to adapt the following instructions. Pull requests against this README are greatly appreciated **
You can set up a development virtual machine running joind.in by following these simple instructions.
Install requirements. (Note: these are not required by joind.in itself, but are required for this quick start guide.)
Clone repository to any location and fetch required submodules (containing Puppet manifests).
git clone https://github.com/joindin/joind.in --recursive cd joind.in
git clone https://github.com/joindin/joind.in && cd joind.in git submodule init git submodule update
Start the process by running Vagrant.
Add hostname to /etc/hosts. If you are on Linux, run this:
echo "\n127.0.0.1 dev.joind.in api.dev.joind.in" | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts
If you are on OSX, run this:
echo "127.0.0.1 dev.joind.in api.dev.joind.in" | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts
If you are on Windows, run this on the cmd line
echo 127.0.0.1 dev.joind.in api.dev.joind.in >> %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Amend the file src/system/application/config/config.php as follows:
$config['base_url'] = 'http://dev.joind.in:8080/'; $config['api_base_url'] = 'http://api.dev.joind.in:8080/';
Browse to the newly provisioned development copy of joind.in at:
HTTP and SSH ports on the VM are forwarded to localhost (22 -> 2222, 80 -> 8080)
The joind.in directory you cloned will be mounted inside the VM at
You can develop by editing the files you cloned in the IDE of you choice.
The database is running inside the VM. You can get to with the following commands:
you@you> vagrant ssh vagrant@vm> sudo -i root@vm> mysql joindin
To stop the VM so that you can work on it later, issue the following command from the host machine:
To delete the VM completely, issue the following command from the host machine:
Testing packages are disabled by default to improve boot time for vagrant. If you wish to enable tests, modify the file puppet/manifests/params.pp as follows:
$tests = true
- The main website http://joind.in
- Issues list: http://joindin.jira.com/ (good bug reports ALWAYS welcome! To get started, try an issue labelled "easy-pick")
- The API repo, which much of the website also depends on: https://github.com/joindin/joindin-api
- CI Environment: lots of output and information about tests, deploys etc: http://jenkins.joind.in
- Community: We hang out on IRC, pop in with questions or comments! #joind.in on Freenode

There are some tests set up, which use PHPUnit; these can be found in the src/tests directory and the src/api-v2/tests directory. There is a phing task configured to run them - from the root directory simply run "phing phpunit" to run the tests. Unfortunately, there will be no output about whether the tests passed or failed from the phing target. A better way to test when you are developing is to run the tests from within the respective tests directory by just typing phpunit. The phpunit.xml in each directory will configure the bootstrap as well as any files that should not be included.
The phpunit.xml file in the src/tests directory will run all of the PHPUnit tests. The phpunit.xml file in src/api-v2/tests will run only the API v2 unit tests.
Please do your best to ensure that any code you contributed adheres to the Joind.in coding style. This is roughly equivalent to the PEAR coding standard with a couple of rules added or taken out. You can run php codesniffer using phing on an individual file like so:
phing phpcs-human -Dfilename.php
This will run codesniffer on any file within the regular source for Joind.in or the API-v2 source. Wildcards work as does specifying part of the path in case the filename alone results in sniffing more files than you wanted.
To see a summary of the codesniff errors and warnings across the entire project, run
This will show the files that still need some attention.
