A website you join via pull request. See it live at http://pullup.io
What would it be like if every user of a site had contributed some code? Let's find out! Right now the site is little more than a terrible Hacker News type thing, but let's see if it can grow into something more.
How to join
- Fork and set up project for development (see below)
- Add your GitHub username to the authorized users list.
- Add a feature, fix a bug, improve the design, etc.
- Submit a pull request! When we merge, you'll be allowed to log in.
First, register a new developer application on GitHub. Set the Homepage URL to your development server (example:
http://localhost:3000) and set your Authorization callback URL to
http://localhost:3000/auth/github/callback. Take note of the Client ID and Client Secret, as you will need them in the next steps.
# Fetch only the latest commits. git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:larvalabs/pullup.git cd pullup # Install NPM dependencies npm install npm install -g gulp # Set the following environment variables: export GITHUB_CLIENTID='CLIENTID' export GITHUB_SECRET='SECRET' # Or, on Windows... SET GITHUB_CLIENTID=CLIENTID SET GITHUB_SECRET=SECRET
Once those are set you can run the local development version:
Or start the app with foreman:
foreman start -f Procfile.local
And perform build tasks and linting with:
You can find out more technical details in the Readme for Hackathon Starter.
Seeding The Database
Firstly make sure you have installed
npm install -g grunt-cli
Once this has installed you can seed the database by running the following grunt task.
You may also wish to completely clear down the database, you can do so by running the
Pullup Dev Community
We hang out on Gitter
Using the Vagrant-based Development Environment
Note: Windows users do not need Ansible installed. (A script will run and install Ansible on the guest machine for you)
Update the GitHub environment variables in
Fire up the Vagrant VM:
Ensure Ansible has run successfully and provisioned the boxes. If not, try again using
Then, ssh in and follow the installation steps:
vagrant ssh cd /vagrant/ npm install node app.js
Vagrant Development on a Windows Host
Windows lacks support for symlinks in synced folders. Use
npm install --no-bin-links instead of
npm install when installing.
This project is based on the awesome Hackathon Starter project. Thanks @sahat!
