Getting started

You need your Stelace API keys to get started. Good news: Stelace is open-source so you can deploy your own server.

  1. Clone this repository
git clone
cd marketplace-demo
  1. Install node_modules
# using yarn instead of npm is recommended

If you don’t have yarn installed, you can follow these instructions.

  1. Create environment files for development and production.

You can copy .env.example and fill it with Stelace API keys (generate them with the server-side open-source project).

cp .env.example .env.development
# You may want to use live keys in this file
cp .env.example .env.production

You need to fill the following environment variables:

  • STELACE_PUBLISHABLE_API_KEY (pubk_...) used in Vue app
  • STELACE_SECRET_API_KEY (seck_...) used in data seeding scripts
  • STELACE_API_URL can be left blank unless you use your own server rather than default

Please refer to .env.example for more details about environment variables, including map, payment gateway, logging and analytics.

  1. Seed development data
yarn seed

quasar dev
# or, if you want to run Netlify functions with stripe payments as well:
yarn dev

Please refer to Quasar docs for more details about front-end configuration and components.
