Getting Started

Running the App

The app is fully Dockerised. You just need docker to spin it up.

A production ready Docker image of the app is published as:

  • on Quay
  • islamicnetwork/ on Docker Hub

To get your own instance up, simply run:

docker run -it -p 8081:8080  islamicnetwork/

You can now visit http://localhost:8081/ and start using it.

Build and Contribute

Please note that the Dockerfile included builds a production ready container which has opcache switched on and xdebug turned off, so you will only see your changes every 5 minutes if you are developing. To actively develop, change the FROM vesica/php72:latest line to vesica/php72:dev.

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Run docker build . -t islamicnetwork/ This will build an image with production dependencies only.
  3. Run docker run -it -p 8081:8080 -v $(pwd)/.:/var/www islamicnetwork/ to spin up the built image.
  4. Run composer install to add development dependencies.
  5. Make sure you have internet connectivity so the app can connect to
  6. Open your browser and browse to http://localhost:8081/.
  7. Any changes you make will be synced to the Docker container. You just refresh the page in the browser to see them.

Scaling and Sizing

This app takes 15 MB per apache process / worker and is set to have a maximum of 20 Apache workers.

A single instance should be sized with a maximum of 512 MB RAM, after which you should scale it horizontally.

You can contribute code by raising a pull request.

There's a backlog of stuff under issues for things that potentially need to be worked on, so please feel free to pick something up from there or contribute your own improvements.
