create programs in the browser using modules from NPM
the app itself is 100% client side (requirebin.com is hosted on github pages) but it relies on these three APIs:
- https://github.com/prose/gatekeeper (only necessary if you want to publish gists)
both can be hosted anywhere, the instances used by requirebin.com are hosted on a linode VPS and nodejitsu, respectively.
config.js is set to use
http://localhost:8000 as the browserify-cdn endpoint but feel free to use
http://wzrd.in which is the one I host on a VPS (requires internet connection to use but hey)
getting it to run locally
set up browserify-cdn
npm install -g browserify npm install -g browserify-cdn browserify-cdn 8000
set up gatekeeper (only if you want to publish gists in dev mode)
- make a new github oauth application and set the app URL and callback URL to
- follow these instructions to install and start gatekeeper on port 9999
config.js to point to your endpoints
npm install npm start open http://localhost:5000
if you are a collaborator and want to deploy code to
requirebin.com, simply run
npm run deploy
