"Installing" the App

You'll only need to do this once.

  1. git clone the repo ($ git clone
  2. cd into the repo
  3. $ npm install
  4. $ bower install / $ bower update

Serving the app

You'll do this every time you want to start the app.

  1. Make sure $ mongod is running a tab on the command line or as a daemon somewhere
  2. $ grunt serve (from inside the repo dir)

Building/Push To Heroku


  1. Heroku toolbelt
  2. Heroku permissions and stuff set up. Head on over here for that. It'll prolly tell you do $ heroku login and some other stuff. You should do that.

First Time Setup

  1. From the main repo directory run $ grunt heroku. This will build everything into a directory insdie the main directory called dist.
  2. Next we need to hook up this build directory, dist, with the heroku repo. To do this, first cd into dist and then run $ git init. This initializes a new git repo just for pushing to heroku. Hook it up to heroku by adding heroku as a remote $ git remote add heroku
  3. Add our build stuff and commit it. $ git add -A and $ git commit -m "V 1.33.7 push".
  4. Now we're ready to push to heroku. Just run $ git push heroku master.

Every Time After That

Just repeats steps 1-4 without setting up the remote business. More explicitly:

  1. From the main repo directory $ grunt heroku
  2. $ cd dist
  3. $ git add -A && git commit -m "your detailed commit message here"
  4. $ git push heroku master
You can’t perform that action at this time.
