Server side, Drywall is built with the Express framework. We're using MongoDB as a data store.

The front-end is built with Backbone. We're using Grunt for the asset pipeline.

You need Node.js and MongoDB installed and running.


$ git clone && cd ./propdeals
$ npm install


First you need to setup your config file.

$ mv ./config.example.js ./config.js #set mongodb and email credentials

Next, you need a few records in the database to start using the user system.

Run these commands on mongo via the terminal. Obviously you should use your email address.

use propdeals; // or your mongo db name if different
db.admingroups.insert({ _id: 'root', name: 'Root' });
db.admins.insert({ name: {first: 'Root', last: 'Admin', full: 'Root Admin'}, groups: ['root'] });
var rootAdmin = db.admins.findOne();{ username: 'root', isActive: 'yes', email: 'your@email.addy', roles: {admin: rootAdmin._id} });
var rootUser = db.users.findOne();
rootAdmin.user = { id: rootUser._id, name: rootUser.username };;

Running the app

$ npm start

# > Drywall@0.0.0 start /Users/jedireza/projects/jedireza/drywall
# > grunt

# Running "copy:vendor" (copy) task
# ...

# Running "concurrent:dev" (concurrent) task
# Running "watch" task

Questions and contributing

$ npm version

# { propdeals: '0.0.1',
#   npm: '2.5.1',
#   http_parser: '2.3',
#   modules: '14',
#   node: '0.12.0',

#   uv: '1.0.2',
#   v8: '3.28.73',
#   zlib: '1.2.8' }

Contributions are welcome. Your code should:

  • pass $ grunt lint without error

If you're changing something non-trivial, you may want to submit an issue first.
