Roadmap to MVP
The MVP aims to provide a collaborative, real-time, facilitator-driven retrospective through the following stages:
- The Retrospective Prime Directive
- frame the retro as a safe, collaborative space
- Idea Generation
- invite ideas (happy, sad, confused) from participants
- Mute Mapping
- participants group ideas into categories without speaking
- Labeling + Voting
- participants vote on categories for discussion and root-cause analysis
- Action Item Generation
- participants generate and assign action items
- Action Item Distribution
- facilitator distributes action items via email to all retro participants

- Install the asdf version manager
- Install Erlang, Elixir, and their dependencies by running
- Compile the project and custom mix tasks via
- Create the "remote_retro_dev" database and migrate via
mix ecto.create && mix ecto.migrate
- Create the "remote_retro_test" database and migrate via
MIX_ENV=test mix ecto.create && mix ecto.migrate
Install nvm (node version manager):
curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.33.1/install.sh | bash

Authentication within Remote Retro relies on Google OAuth and the Google+ API. To set this up, navigate to the Google API console and create a new project: https://console.developers.google.com/apis
Next, click on "Credentials" in the left sidebar nav. On the right hand side, click on the "Create Credentials" button and select "OAuth client ID".
- Application type: Web application
- Authorized redirect URIs:
Click on the Create button. Using the information Google provides, add the following lines to your profile and source (or open a new terminal).
export REMOTE_RETRO_GOOGLE_OAUTH_CLIENT_ID="<Client Id>" export REMOTE_RETRO_GOOGLE_OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET="<Client secret>" export REMOTE_RETRO_GOOGLE_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URI="http://localhost:4000/auth/google/callback"
Finally, enable the Google+ API for your project.
