Trotto Go Links

CircleCI

Deploy

(See the guide here to deploy to Heroku in minutes.)

Reliable and battle-tested continuously in production since 2017, this go links solution is used by companies all around the world daily as the core of Trotto.

Try out the latest build at latest-master.trotto.dev and also check out the matching open-source browser extension.

If you'd rather use the fully-managed instance of Trotto, visit www.trot.to.


Don't hesitate to reach out to us through help@trot.to, a GitHub issue, or live chat at https://www.trot.to.


Features

Trotto provides all the baseline functionality you'd expect from a go links solution, including the ability to create, use, and modify go links that are shared with your organization—and with nobody else.

Trotto also includes powerful features above and beyond a basic go links implementation, including a searchable go links directory, a browser extension that makes go links work instantly, and programmatic links, which are go links containing placeholders that map onto the destination URL (ex: go/gh/%s pointing to https://github.com/my_org/%s).

For a full list of Trotto's features, check out https://www.trot.to/how-it-works.

Authentication

At the moment, the open-source app solely supports authentication using a Google account, but we plan to add support for additional identity providers upon request. So if you need support for another provider, submit a GitHub issue, and we'll help you out!

Deploy the app

See our deployment docs:

Local development

You can bring up a local instance of Trotto within a few minutes.

Clone this repository

git clone git@github.com:trotto/go-links.git
cd go-links

Create a virtualenv

Inside the go-links/server directory, create and enter a Python 3.8 virtualenv and install dependencies:

cd go-links/server
python3 -m venv .virtualenv
source .virtualenv/bin/activate
pip install -r src/requirements.txt

You can use pyenv as well.

Add an app.yml file

Add a file at server/src/config/app.yml with this format:

sessions_secret: any_secret
postgres:
  url: "postgresql://username:password@host/database"

postgres.url should be the connection string for a Postgres 12 database. The server startup script will add the tables Trotto needs.

Start the backend server

From the server/ directory, run:

./run_local.sh

Start the frontend development server

In a separate terminal, from the frontend/ directory, run:

yarn install
./start_dev_server.sh

Now, you can access the local instance at http://localhost:5007.

Making changes

Most server-side and frontend changes should be picked up automatically, thanks to the Flask dev server and React Hot Loader.
