Aqua

A website and user system starter.

Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

Features

  • Basic front end web pages (home, about)
  • Contact page with form that emails submissions
  • Account sign-up page
  • Login system with forgot password and reset password
  • Abusive login attempt detection
  • User roles for accounts and admins
  • Admins only notes and status history for accounts
  • Admin groups with shared permissions
  • Admin level permissions that override group permissions

Technology

Server side, Aqua is built with the hapi framework. We're using MongoDB as a data store.

The front-end is built with React. We use Redux as our state container. Client side routing is done with React Router. We're using Gulp for the build system.

API only

If you don't use React and/or would rather bring your own front-end, checkout Frame. It's just the HTTP API parts of Aqua.

Requirements

You need Node.js installed and you'll need MongoDB installed and running.

We use bcrypt for hashing secrets. If you have issues during installation related to bcrypt then refer to this wiki page.

Installation

$ git clone git@github.com:jedireza/aqua.git
$ cd aqua
$ npm install

Configuration

Simply edit config.js. The configuration uses confidence which makes it easy to manage configuration settings across environments. Don't store secrets in this file or commit them to your repository.

Instead, access secrets via environment variables. We use dotenv to help make setting local environment variables easy (not to be used in production).

Simply copy .env-sample to .env and edit as needed. Don't commit .env to your repository.

First time setup

WARNING: This will clear all data in the following MongoDB collections if they exist: accounts, adminGroups, admins, authAttempts, sessions, statuses, and users.

$ npm run first-time-setup

# > aqua@0.0.0 first-time-setup /home/jedireza/projects/aqua
# > node first-time-setup.js

# MongoDB URL: (mongodb://localhost:27017/aqua)
# Root user email: jedireza@gmail.com
# Root user password:
# Setup complete.

Running the app

$ npm start

# > aqua@0.0.0 start /Users/jedireza/projects/aqua
# > gulp react && gulp

# [23:41:44] Using gulpfile ~/projects/aqua/gulpfile.js
# ...

Now you should be able to point your browser to http://127.0.0.1:8000/ and see the welcome page.

nodemon watches for changes in server code and restarts the app automatically. gulp and webpack watch the front-end files and re-build those automatically too.

We also pass the --inspect flag to Node so you have a debugger available. Watch the output of $ npm start and look for the debugging URL and open it in Chrome. It looks something like this:

chrome-devtools://devtools/remote/serve_file/@62cd277117e6f8ec53e31b1be58290a6f7ab42ef/inspector.html?experiments=true&v8only=true&ws=localhost:9229/node

Running in production

$ node server.js

Unlike $ npm start this doesn't watch for file changes. Also be sure to set these environment variables in your production environment:

  • NODE_ENV=production - This is important for many different optimizations, both server-side and with the front-end build files.
  • NPM_CONFIG_PRODUCTION=false - This tells $ npm install to not skip installing devDependencies, which we need to build the front-end files.

Have a question?

Any issues or questions (no matter how basic), open an issue. Please take the initiative to read relevant documentation and be pro-active with debugging.

Want to contribute?

Contributions are welcome. If you're changing something non-trivial, you may want to submit an issue before creating a large pull request.

Running tests

Lab is part of the hapi ecosystem and what we use to write all of our tests.

$ npm test

# > aqua@0.0.0 test /Users/jedireza/projects/aqua
# > lab -t 100 -S -T ./test/lab/transform -L --lint-options '{"extensions":[".js",".jsx"]}' ./test/lab/client-before.js ./test/client/ ./test/lab/client-after.js ./test/server/ ./test/lab/server-after.js ./test/misc/
