Clone from git using
$ git clone https://github.com/mozilla/balrog
To run a development environment you must have Docker and docker-compose installed (if you're on Windows or Mac you need "Docker for Windows" or "Docker for Mac" at least v1.12.0)
Once these prerequisites are installed, run the following command to create and run the necessary images:
$ docker-compose up
Once it completes, you should be able to access
- The admin interface at http://127.0.0.1:8080
- The public interface on port 9090
To execute all tests, run
For executing test only for backend, run
$ ./run-tests.sh backend
For executing test only for frontend, run
$ ./run-tests.sh frontend
run-tests.sh script runs tests inside a Docker container,
which is convenient but can be slow. You can also set up a virtualenv
yourself and run tests "locally" using tox:
$ py.test -n2 --cov=. --doctest-modules auslib
Note that Docker may have set files to be owned by root, so you may
chmod -R $(whoami) . to make them writable by tox and
