Thank you for considering contributing to the Voten. To encourage active collaboration, Voten strongly encourages pull requests, not just bug reports. Voten's Slack channel is created for developers to discuss Voten development concerns. If you have an idea (and not the code for it) you may contact us either with the email address or submit it to #votendev channel.

Coding Style

Voten follows the PSR-2 coding standard and the PSR-4 autoloading standard. Voten also uses StyleCI for automatically merging any style fixes. So you don't have to worry about your code style much.

Software Stack

Voten is a Laravel application that runs on the following software:

  • Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
  • Nginx 1.10+
  • MySQL 5.7+ (to use mariaDB, you must modify json type migration columns to blob by running sed -i 's/json(/binary(/g' * inside the database/migrations/ directory in Linux)
  • PHP 7.1+
  • Redis 3.0+
  • Git 2.8.4+
  • Pusher (we use laravel-echo-server on production server)
  • Algolia Search

To install all the required stack on a server, we recommend an auto-installation service such as CodePier.

Installation Steps

After cloning the repository, first create a .env from the example file:

cp .env.example .env

Open ".env" file with your desired editor and enter your services info. Now run below commands:

composer install
php artisan key:generate
php artisan migrate
php artisan passport:install
npm install
npm run production

Create admin user

To create an admin user, run the below command from the root of the project

php artisan db:seed --class=AdminUserSeeder

The login details for the admin user is admin and password.

After running the seeder, be sure to clear your redis cache, you should now be able to navigate to /backend
