README.md

Joind.in

This is the source code for the next generation of 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 version is the next generation version, providing a responsive cross-device site for screens of all devices

You can either install joind.in on an existing PHP platform, or use our vagrant setup.

Welcome

Joind.in welcomes all contributors regardless of your ability or experience. We especially welcome you if you are new to Open Source development and will provide a helping hand. To ensure that everyone understands what we expect from our community, our projects have a Contributor Code of Conduct and by participating in the development of joind.in you agree to abide by its terms.

Quick start with Vagrant

To get you going without much hassle we created a vagrant-setup. To use it fork the joindin-vm repository and follow the instructions in there.

This VM will load all three Joind.in projects (joind.in, joindin-vm and joindin-web2).

Other Resources

Global .gitignore

git has the capability to define a global gitignore file , which means you can set up rules on your machine to ignore everything you don't want to include in your commits. This works not only for this project, but for all your other projects too.

You can define the gitignore file with a command that looks like this, where the last argument is the file that holds the patterns to ignore:

$ git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore_global

Octocat gives a good starting point for what to include, but you can also ignore the files used by your editor:

# Eclipse
.classpath
.project
.settings/

# Intellij
.idea/
*.iml
*.iws

# Maven
log/
target/

# Netbeans
nbproject/private/

For more info on ignoring files, github has an excellent help page.

Using A Proxy

Since web2 then calls the API, it can be tricky to see what is going on. You can use a proxy tool such as Charles Proxy or mitmproxy to observe the requests that are being made by enabling the proxy setting in the config with a line that looks something like this:

'proxy' => 'tcp://10.0.2.2:8888',

If the proxy tool is running on your host machine, you'll need to understand what IP address the guest thinks your host has, the easiest way to do that is to vagrant ssh into the VM and then type last to see where it thinks you logged in from.
