My Stamps

Build Status Coverage Status PDD Status

What's it?

It's a website for anybody who collects post stamps and wants to have an online version of the collection.

How can it be useful to me?

With this site you can:

  • look at the statistic (including charts) about your collection (how many series and stamps do you have? From which countries and in which categories they are?)
  • share a link to the collection with friends
  • use it as a list of stamps which you are selling on auction
  • add to the signature on forums
  • use it where a photo of your collection is needed

How can I try it?

You can look at it and try on

If you are programmer/sysadmin or you just feeling that you are able to run a local version of the site then follow the following instructions:

  • install Java (at least 8th version is required)
  • install Maven
  • clone this project
  • from the console inside the directory with source code, execute the command mvn spring-boot:run
  • open up in a browser
  • browse the site or log in as one of the pre-created users: admin, paid, or coder with password test
  • press Ctrl-C to stop the server

Caution! The purpose of that version is a preview of the site and its capabilities. Because of that, the changes that you can make on the site will be lost after stopping the server!
