Secret Santa app

Just go to and have fun.

Code source is under MIT License.

Running the application locally


A Docker environment is provided and requires you to have these tools available:

Install and run pipenv to install the required tools:

pipenv --three install

You can configure your current shell to be able to use Invoke commands directly (without having to prefix everything by pipenv run)

pipenv shell

Optionally, in order to improve your usage of invoke scripts, you can install a console autocompletion script.

If you are using bash:

invoke --print-completion-script=bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/invoke

If you are using something else, please refer to your shell documentation. But you may need to use invoke --print-completion-script=zsh > /to/somewhere

Invoke supports completion for bash, zsh & fish shells.

Docker environment

The Docker infrastructure provides a web stack with:

  • Redis
  • PHP 7.4
  • Traefik
  • A container with some tooling:
    • Composer
    • Node
    • Yarn / NPM

Domain configuration (first time only)

Before running the application for the first time, ensure your domain names point the IP of your Docker daemon by editing your /etc/hosts file.

This IP is probably unless you run Docker in a special VM (docker-machine, dinghy, etc).

Note: The router binds port 80 and 443, that's why it will work with

echo ' secret-santa.test' | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts

Using dinghy? Run dinghy ip to get the IP of the VM.

Env vars configuration (first time only)

We rely on some env variables to configure how to communicate with various API's and Redis.

Copy the content of the file .env into a new .env.local (which will be ignored by git) and fill the missing vars with correct values.

Starting the stack

Launch the stack by running this command:

inv start

Note: the first start of the stack should take a few minutes.

The site is now accessible at https://secret-santa.test (you may need to accept self-signed SSL certificate).


Having some composer, yarn or another modifications to make on the project? Start the builder which will give you access to a container with all these tools available:

inv builder

Note: You can add as many Invoke command as you want. But the command should be ran by the builder, don't forget to add @with_builder annotation to the function.


Tests are made with PHPUnit.
To run unit tests, launch this command:

inv tests

Other tasks

Checkout inv -l to have the list of available Invoke tasks.
