Coronate is a web app for managing Swiss-style chess tournaments.
Coronate is a free alternative to pricey professional tournament software. Anyone, even a tournament newbie with a locked-down public-access computer, can use it to run their tournament.
🥰 Enjoy using Coronate?
Coronate is free software, but you're welcome to show your appreciation.
These are the basic steps you'll need to follow to get a development copy of Coronate running on your machine:
You'll need Node.js version 14. Coronate probably runs on other versions too, but it's not tested on them.
1: Get the code
For most people, the easiest method is to click the "Clone or Download" button on this project's GitHub homepage.
If you have Git installed, you can also run:
git clone https://github.com/johnridesabike/coronate.git
If you want to make your own changes, then it's recommended to fork the repository on GitHub and clone your forked version.
2: Install the dependencies
Once you have a local copy of the code, run this command in the project's directory to install its dependencies:
Coronate works completely in your local browser. Running it only requires two commands.
First run this to compile the ReScript source:
npm run build:res
Alternatively, you can run the compiler in watch mode:
npm run start:res
Then run this to start the app:
And then open this URL:
Because it keeps your data in your browser's storage, be mindful that data loss can happen unexpectedly depending on your settings. The app's "options" page has a button to back up your data in an external file.
🔧 Running the tests
Just as with using the live version, you need to run
npm run build:res first.
Then you can run the tests with the command:
To create an optimized version that can be uploaded to your own website, run:
npm run build
