Events at the University of Pennsylvania
A web application that collects all events happening at the University of Pennsylvania with built-in search and recommendation engine.
Run web application
Gatsby.js as our frontend. The frontend is located in
gatsby_site folder. Before running, make sure that you have a recent version of
npm installed (NodeJS 8+). If it is the first time, you need to install
# only once on first time npm install -g gatsby-cli
and run frontend application from the
gatsby_site folder as follows:
cd gatsby_site npm install npm start
Then index given example data to
Elasticsearch located in
npm run index-elastic # index data to Elasticsearch
By default, this will concurrently run Gatsby frontend site at port
8000, hug API backend at port
Elasticsearch at port
9200. For deployment, use
npm run deploy instead. This will run the site at port
gatsby_site, to see how to run on a remote server.
