Soapee Next Source Code

Soapee is a Saponification Calculator and a Soap Recipe Database.

Here lies the source code for Soapee. The source code is released to the community under the AGPLv3 License. Source code is released as-is and no warranty or support will be provided by the author.

The website was decommissioned on the 30th of April 2024 and its source code is presented here for all who wish to run their own private versions of Soapee. This repo is archived and no further commits will be pushed.

Hosting this code for public access is strongly discouraged due to the code's outdated nature - doing so would make your public facing server susceptible to security breaches now or in the future.

Developing and running Soapee locally

  1. Get Docker
  2. From withing the project root folder, type docker compose up to start the local environment
  3. Once docker has created all containers and all services have started, run yarn db:migrate to create the local dev database then run yarn db:seed to seed the local Postgres database. Once your local database is seeded, you are ready to use Soapee. You might want to add a volume to map the PG database files via the PGDATA Environment variable to a local folder in the db service in the docker-compose.yml file to persist the Postgres database files.
  4. Point your browser at http://localhost:5000


Why did Soapee shutdown?

Due to professional and personal commitments, I am not able to dedicate any further time on running and maintaining Soapee.

Can you help me with X, Y, Z?

I'm very sorry, but I am not able to offer any assistance to any Soapee issues nor questions.

I want to buy Soapee

Neither the domain nor the Soapee database is for sale. The database contains identifiable user information and private recipes and as such I am not comfortable releasing it. The Soapee source code is available to run Soapee on your own hardware.
