How to Contribute

Please checkout our CONTRIBUTING.md on ways to contribute to TellForm.

All contributors are eligible to get a free TellForm Sticker. All you have to do is submit a PR, get it accepted, email your address to team [at] tellform.com and we'll send you a sticker that you can proudly put on your laptop.

Quickstart

Before you start, make sure you have

  1. Redis installed and running at 127.0.0.1:6379
  2. MongoDB installed and running at 127.0.0.1:27017 (OR specify the host and port in config/env/all)

Also make sure to install DNS Masq or equivalent if running it locally on your computer (look at dns_masq_setup_osx for instructions on OSX)

Install dependencies first.

$ npm install
$ bower install

Setup environment.

$ grunt build

Create your user account

$ node ./scripts/setup.js

OR create your .env file

GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID=yourGAID
PRERENDER_TOKEN=yourPrerender.ioToken
COVERALLS_REPO_TOKEN=yourCoveralls.ioToken
BASE_URL=localhost
DSN_KEY=yourPrivateRavenKey

# Mail config
MAILER_EMAIL_ID=user@domain.com
MAILER_PASSWORD=some-pass
MAILER_FROM=user@domain.com

# Use this for one of Nodemailer's pre-configured service providers
MAILER_SERVICE_PROVIDER=SendGrid

# Use these for a custom service provider
# Note: MAILER_SMTP_HOST will override MAILER_SERVICE_PROVIDER
MAILER_SMTP_HOST=smtp.domain.com
MAILER_SMTP_PORT=465
MAILER_SMTP_SECURE=TRUE

Side note: Currently we are using Raven and Sentry https://www.getsentry.com for error logging. To use it you must provide a valid private DSN key in your .env file and a public DSN key in app/views/layout.index.html

To run the development version:

Set NODE_ENV=development in .env file $ grunt

To run the production version:

Set NODE_ENV=production in .env file $ grunt

Your application should run on port 3000 or the port you specified in your .env file, so in your browser just go to http://localhost:3000

Deploying with Docker

To deploy with docker, first install docker here.

Then see this page here for commands on how to deploy your own local TellForm instance.

Testing Your Application

You can run the full test suite included with TellForm with the test task:

$ grunt test

This will run both the server-side tests (located in the app/tests/ directory) and the client-side tests (located in the public/modules/*/tests/).

To execute only the server tests, run the test:server task:

$ grunt test:server

And to run only the client tests, run the test:client task:

$ grunt test:client

Currently the live example uses heroku github deployments. The Docker file is out of date and does not work. If someone wishes to get it working feel free to submit a pull request.

To calculate your total test coverage with Istanbul, run the coverage task

$ grunt coverage

To calculate your server-side test coverage with Istanbul, run the coverage task

$ grunt coverage:server

To calculate your client-side test coverage with Istanbul, run the coverage task

$ grunt coverage:client

TellForm's configuration is done with environment variables. To set an option for TellForm, open/create your .env file and set add ENV_VAR=somevalue to set the ENV_VAR variable to the value somevalue.
