Code Climate Dependency Status devDependency Status Lacuna-Web-Client size


Lacuna-Web-Client requires Nodejs to hack on. For installing, see their wiki.

Setup of this client should look something like this:

git clone
cd Lacuna-Web-Client
npm install gulp -g # installs the build tool, gulp. This should be a once-off.
npm install # installs the dependencies: jquery, express, etc..
gulp dev # compiles js/css and launches dev server.

Gulp Tasks

In this project, Gulp is used to manage building the code. All the tasks that can be run are documented below. Note: there are several undocumented tasks. This is intentional as they are small parts of a larger task.


gulp build

Runs the entire process of pulling all the JavaScript/CSS together and creates minified versions of them. This is also the default task, meaning that running just gulp in the command line will run this task.

PRODUCTION=1 gulp build

This does the same as above but it prepares the code itself for production. For example, there are a few development-only bits that get removed in this process. A deploy on a production server would need to do this or the client won't load properly.


gulp dev

This puts all the JavaScript and CSS together and starts a web server for run the web client. Open up a browser to the US1 mirror page and you should see the it working.


gulp serve

This just runs the server for running the client in a browser.
