Development

The backend is built as a REST API via the Go web application.

It also acts as the webserver to serve the front end react application

All api actions are accessible with the /api route. The frontend is accessible from /.

Requirements

  • Go 1.7
  • NodeJS 4.2.6

Building Releases

Creates a release zip for windows and linux: (this will install the dependencies listed in gopkgdeps)

git clone https://github.com/mroote/factorio-server-manager.git
cd factorio-server-manager
make gen_release

Building a Testing Binary:

git clone https://github.com/mroote/factorio-server-manager.git
cd factorio-server-manager
make
./factorio-server-manager/factorio-server-manager

Building the React Frontend alone

Frontend is built using React and the AdminLTE CSS framework. See app/dist/ for AdminLTE included files and license.

The root of the UI application is served at app/index.html. Run the npm build script and the Go application during development to get live rebuilding of the UI code.

All necessary CSS and Javascript files are included for running the UI.

Transpiled bundle.js application is output to app/bundle.js, 'npm run build' script starts webpack to build the React application for development.

make app/bundle.js

Building for Windows

  1. Download the latest release source zip file
  1. Unzip the Factorio Standalone server and move it to a known directory.
  2. Download and install Go 1.7 or newer. https://golang.org/dl/
  3. Download and install NodeJS 4.2.6 64-bit or 32-bit depending on your operating system, if unsure download 32-bit
  1. Download and install NVM, when asked if you want it to use NodeJS 4.2.6 accept
  1. You will need to setup GOPATH in environmental settings in windows. You will want to go into Control Panel\System and Security\System From there on the left hand side click "Advanced system settings". A window will open and you need to click Environment Variables.
  2. Under System Variables click New. For Variable name use GOPATH and Variable value C:\Go\

Once everything is installed and ready to go you will need to compile the source for windows

  1. Open the folder where ever you unzipped from step #2 above.
  2. My folder structure is like this "C:\FS\factorio-server-manager" C:\FS is where my factorio files are located C:\FS\factorio-server-manager\ is where the server manager files are.
  3. You will now need to install some dependencies for Go. You will need to open up a command prompt and one at a time type each of these and hit enter before typing the next one.
go get github.com/apexskier/httpauth
go get github.com/go-ini/ini
go get github.com/gorilla/mux
go get github.com/hpcloud/tail
go get github.com/gorilla/websocket
go get github.com/majormjr/rcon
go get github.com/Masterminds/semver
  1. Now you will want to go into the src folder for example "C:\FS\factorio-server-manager\src" once there hold down left shift and right click an empty area of the folder. Then click "Open command windows here"
  2. Type this into the command prompt then hit enter:
go build
  1. Once finished you will now see src.exe or src file inside the folder. You need to move that file to the C:\FS\factorio-server-manager\ or the folder that is before your src folder.
  2. From here you need to build the web front-end by going into your ui folder for me its C:\FS\factorio-server-manager\ui\ and again hold shift and left click in an empty area then select open command prompt here. You then need to type this:
 npm install
 npm run build
  1. Now execute the src file created in step #4 above
  2. You can now Visit localhost:8080 in your web browser to start using the Factorio server Manager
