Land of the Rair
This is a monorepo. For a specific project setup/config, check those project subfolders (for example, the
server needs a
.env setup before it will run.).
You can either use Docker, or you can use your own installed Node / Mongo / Redis (or, of course, a hosted Mongo / Redis). If you're installing Node, it should be at least version 14.
- Assets - home of bgm, macicons, sfx, and spritesheets (frontend content)
- Content - home of droptables, items, maps, npc stats, npc scripts, quests, recipes, and spawners (backend content)
docker-compose up and it will build, run, and start the client and server (as well as Mongo and Redis).
Your Installed Node
You will want to be using Node 16.12 (at least) to run this project.
npm install- set up the monorepo
npm run setup:full- setup both the client and server for development (See "Developing Content" for some advice on running the same instance of the Content folder for client and server).
Developing Code-related Content
Check this wiki page.
One option you have to run Land of the Rair and actively work on the content, is to clone the Content repo right alongside Land of the Rair (meaning you'll have
folder/Content). If you have the Content repo available and run
npm run setup, it will symlink the Content repo so you can develop it concurrently without having to commit, push, pull, and update. Or copying, or whatever.
The content will need to be rebuilt when it changes. You can either run
npm run content:build to do it when needed, or
npm run content:watch to watch for changes.
To commit content, you'll still need to go to that folder manually and commit, since it is a separate repository. The helpers above are added for convenience.
Running Both Projects
npm start and the client and server will both start up.
You can also do
npm run start:server and
npm run start:client to start the two separately.
