Dropular.net version 2010

Note: This is an archived snapshot of the dropular.net source, May 2010. Some parts has been removed or altered for the sake of security and readability.

Development

Starting daily development

Terminal 1:

ssh -L5984:127.0.0.1:5984 dropular-ec2-1

Terminal 2:

cd dropular/dropular
./build.sh

Terminal 3:

cd dropular/dropular
./httpd.js

Setting up a local installation

1. Install node

You'll need Node v0.1.32 or later.

$ git clone git://github.com/ry/node.git
$ cd node
$ ./configure
$ make 
$ sudo make install

2. Install oui and the dropular site.

$ mkdir dropular && cd dropular
$ git clone git://github.com/rsms/oui.git
$ git clone git://github.com/rsms/node-couchdb-min.git
$ git clone git@github.com:rsms/dropular.git

You might need to build the oui library:

$ cd dropular/oui/client
$ ./build.sh -s

3. Install CouchDB

First, install dependencies. OS X:

$ sudo port install icu erlang spidermonkey curl

Debian:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential erlang libicu-dev libmozjs-dev\
  libcurl4-openssl-dev

Suck down and build CouchDB:

$ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/couchdb/trunk couchdb
$ cd couchdb
$ ./bootstrap && ./configure
$ make && sudo make install

[--deprecated--]

In production, you should configure for prefix "" (that's "/"):

$ ./configure --prefix ''

And perform the following after make install:

$ sudo adduser --system --home /var/lib/couchdb --no-create-home\
  --shell /bin/bash --group --gecos 'CouchDB Administrator' couchdb
$ sudo chown -R couchdb.couchdb /var/{lib,log,run}/couchdb /etc/couchdb
$ sudo chmod -R 0770 /var/{lib,log,run}/couchdb /etc/couchdb

Uninstall is partially possible by running make uninstall and then sudo find /usr/local -iname '*couch*' | sudo xargs rm -rf.

Create a dropular user and group:

$ sudo adduser --system --home /var/dropular --shell /bin/bash --group\
  --gecos 'Dropular system user' dropular

Generate an SSH key for the dropular user:

$ sudo su dropular
$ cd
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
$ cat .ssh/id_rsa.pub

Copy the output from the last command and add a new "deploy key" in https://github.com/rsms/dropular/edit

Check out the dropular repo, logged in as dropular:

$ git clone git@github.com:rsms/dropular.git /var/dropular/dropular

Create a symlink in /var/www:

$ ln -s /var/dropular/dropular /var/www/dropular.net/www

Deploying a new version of dropular-httpd

First thing, start a server instance in debug mode on an unused port:

$ sudo -u dropular /var/dropular/dropular/httpd.js -d -p 9000

Then, test with a client directly:

$ open 'http://dropular.net:9000/'

Then test with a client partially:

$ open 'http://dropular.net/#OUI_DEBUG_BACKEND=dropular.net:9000'

If everything look jolly good, restart all live server instances:

$ sudo invoke-rc.d dropular-httpd restart

Aaand test the live client:

$ open 'http://dropular.net/'

Client development

When developing the client, you need to build it. The build.sh file does this for you automatically. In a terminal:

$ ./build.sh -fO 0

-fO 0 -- The f flag causes the first build to be "complete" (forced). The O flag sets the optimization level to zero, making debugging possible.

Keep this running in a terminal -- when a file has been changed, the client will automatically be rebuilt.

Server development

When developing the server, you need to (re)start httpd.js when something changes in the server code.

$ ./httpd.js -d

-d -- The d flag causes debugging to be enabled.
