  name: string           // Your name
  role: string           // Committee role name - eg. secretary
  avatar: string         // Filename (without .jpg) of your avatar in src/images/committee. Set to `tbd` if no picture exists

    facebook?: string    // Facebook username (in the URL on your profile page)
  bio: string            // Brief description of you

Event Database

  • Events will be removed from the "upcoming" page after the specified date
  • Add new events to eventdb.js (scroll down to find categorised listings)
  • The options for each event item is as follows:
  title: string   // Name of event
  url?: string    // Link to custom event page (optional)
  dom: number     // Day of month - (1 = 1st, 2 = 2nd, ...)
  moy: number     // Month of year - (1 = Jan, 2 = Feb, ..)
  year: number    // Year
  type: number    // Event category - eg. social, tutorial, etc
  link?: {        // Related links - eg. Facebook event / tickets (optional)
    text: string    // Text to show for related link
    url: string     // URL of related link



  • Run npm start:dev and npm build:dev in separate terminals simultaneously.


  • Log into via SSH
  • Navigate to /var/www/shefcompsocuk to view the git repo
  • Switch to the shefcompsocuk user by running sudo su shefcompsocuk. This is a necessary step due to the owner of the server files
  • Run git pull to retrieve latest changes from the GitHub repo
  • Run npm run build to re-build the JS/CSS/image assets (but you can skip this step if you're sure these assets have not changed)
  • Run systemctl restart shefcompsocuk to restart the server (there is a custom systemd service, DON'T run npm start)

Debugging errors on server

  • Restart with sudo reboot. This just makes the next step quicker and easier.
  • As root, in any directory, run sudo journalctl. This will show you all logs from all systemd services since the server was last started.
  • Use the spacebar to jump quickly to the last items in the log. These will be the Node.JS server errors.
  • The errors here should be helpful in debugging the issues encountered, especially 500 errors which shut down the entire website.
