SkillDirectory is a REST API written in Go. Our current line of thought regarding this project is that it will be used to store information about our dev team: teammembers, skills they have, web links for improving one's knowledge of a subject, etc... Since SkillDirectory is a REST API, from the point of view of a client, all of this information is created, updated, deleted, and otherwise modified via HTTP requests to a server running an instance of SkillDirectory. The server itself stores this data in a Postgres database
We are working on a frontend client using ReactJS.
1) Make sure Golang is installed, and your GOPATH is set (see https://golang.org/doc/install).
2) Install glide by running
brew install glide (You'll need to have
Homebrew installed to do that).
3) Clone the repo onto your machine:
cd $GOPATH/src # MUST clone into this specific directory! git clone https://github.com/maryvilledev/skilldirectory.git
4) Install/download the dependencies:
cd $GOPATH/src/skilldirectory glide install
./make to start the API server locally on port
(see https://github.com/maryvilledev/skilldirectory/wiki/Make-File for more info
Note: This repository only contains the REST API layer, and does not contain the
database that it depends upon. Please make sure you have the Cassandra database from
and listening on port
9042, or the API will not be able to do anything.
Please also read the REST Requests wiki page to learn how to interact with SkillDirectory once you've got it running.
Please explore the project Wiki for more information.
