Warnings

Note to users: There are scroll bar issues present. Also, recorded issues of post fails on retrieving large geoJSONs. For usability, make sure you are running Mozilla FF (latest version). Also, since we have yet to custom remove the scroll bar issue - if you are running a Windows OS, use https://userstyles.org/styles/5449/scrollbar-hidden-hide-scrollbars-totally to deal with the scroll bar situation.

View staging server online

See an online demo at http://mittransportanalyst.github.io/boston/. Due to cross-origin request issues, please be sure that on Heroku you are going to http and NOT https. If you type in the address without specifically designating http, Heroku will route you automatically to https, so please be aware of that.

How to get this up and running

Node, npm, Bower

You need Node installed on your computer. If you do not have it, go to https://nodejs.org/ and click the green button named "Install".

npm is Node's package manager, and comes bundled. Bower is a package manager for client side libraries. Install it if you don't have it by entering npm install -g bower in your terminal. More information on Bower can be found at http://bower.io/.

Cloning repo

If you don't have the repo cloned already, navigate to a fresh/clean/empty directory in your computer and enter git clone https://github.com/mitTransportAnalyst/CoAXs.git. Make sure you are in the master branch (you should be by default), by entering git status and checking which branch is highlighted.

Installing dependencies

Run bower install and npm install to install dependencies for client and server-side libraries, respectively. You can view the dependencies in bower.json for Bower and package.json for Node.

Starting up node

Once all dependencies have been installed, all that's left to do is enter npm start. Now open a web browser and navigate to http://127.0.0.1:3000. The app should be up and running there.

(Note: Install Heroku Toolbelt. use ​foreman start​ instead of ​npm start)
