Contributing to superdesk client

Great you got here! Please follow the guidelines to ease the process of accepting the changes.

Test your code

Please write tests whenever it makes sense and make sure the existing tests pass. You can use grunt task for this:

grunt test

will run all the existing test using _spec.js convetion.

Check code style

We use jshint and jscs to ensure we're all on same page regarding code style. There are grunt tasks:

grunt jshint
grunt jscs

which runs those respective checkers.

You can also use grunt ci which runs both + unit tests all together (used by travis-ci).

Use recommended modules/submodules/apps structure

There are 2 main areas - superdesk core modules and superdesk apps.

Superdesk core module structure

In superdesk core we split by feature into submodules like superdesk/upload where there is an upload.js file which defines superdesk.upload angular module. This file can via require load its components (directives, controllers, services) but all the angular registration should happen in upload.js.

We put most of components into root submodule dir with a type suffix - upload-service.js - and with unit tests next to with a _spec.js suffix - upload-service_spec.js.

Views are put into views subfolder and referenced using require.toUrl:

// upload-directive.js
define(['require'], function(require) {
    'use strict';
    return function() {
        return {
            templateUrl: require.toUrl('./views/upload-directive.html'),

Superdesk apps module

There is always a base module file module.js inside of the app folder which returns an angular module which has all the app components registered. Inside of the app it should be structured like in the superdesk core modules.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
