Cella

Cella is a web-based application to help participants in the Brown University Housing Lottery identify desired rooms conveniently and efficiently.

It is a successor to Domus, a desktop application with similar goals, built by Miya Schneider, Sumner Warren, and me for CS 32.

Dependencies

This application runs on top of node.js.

Cella depends on the following node modules:

Cella uses npm to manage these dependencies.
When you have npm installed, go to Cella's directory and run:

npm install

Afterwards, you can run npm update to make sure you have the latest dependencies installed.

You will also need a running instance of the Redis database server.

Additional dependencies are included as submodules within the Git repository. To get them, once you have cloned the repository:

git submodule init
git submodule update
./cake build:dependencies
./cake install:dependencies

Note that you will need to build and install the dependencies whenever any submodules change.

Building

To build the source code for this project, run ./cake build from the top-level directory.

If you are working with the source code, you can use the --watch / -w option so that the project is automatically rebuilt when any of the source files change.

./cake -w build

Running

To run the server:

npm start

The server runs, by default, on port 8888. (i.e., to access it, go to http://127.0.0.1:8888/)

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
