Beginnings of build and run scripts, please add PRs for additional fixes etc:
Script for using MongoDB portable:
- Install MeteorJS
- Install NodeJS (Optional but recommended)
- Install Python 2.7 (Installation through Chocolatey(
choco install python2 -y) is recomended)
- If you are on windows 7, Install .NET 4.5.1+
MUST MAKE SURE TO Install Visual C++ 2015 Build Tools or run this command from an elevated PowerShell or CMD.exe (run as Administrator) to install,
npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
- Install Git
- Restart Windows (Optional but recommended)
From this point, it's advised to use Git bash to run commands to make sure everything works as is, but if you had trouble accessing meteor or npm commands via Git bash, windows CMD will most likely work without any problem.
Inside the Git Bash, run these commands:
npm config -g set msvs_version 2015 meteor npm config -g set msvs_version 2015
- Clone the repo (
- Browse the wekan directory and run
- If you see any error regarding xss, do
meteor npm i --save xssto install xss.
- Set the Environment variables, or create a .env file with the following data.
- open your browser, make changes and see it reflecting real-time.
Example of setting environment variables
You need to have start-wekan.bat textfile with that content of those environment variables. In Windows, .bat files use DOS style of setting varibles.
Similar file for Linux bash is here: https://github.com/wekan/wekan-maintainer/blob/master/virtualbox/start-wekan.sh
ROOT_URL examples are here: https://github.com/wekan/wekan/releases
SET MONGO_URL=mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017/wekan SET ROOT_URL=http://127.0.0.1/ SET MAIL_URL=smtp://user:email@example.com:25/ SET MAIL_FROMfirstname.lastname@example.org SET PORT=8081
Example contents of
MONGO_URL=mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017/wekan ROOT_URL=http://127.0.0.1/ MAIL_URL=smtp://user:email@example.com:25/ MAIL_FROMfirstname.lastname@example.org PORT=8081
That URL format is: mongodb://ip-address-of-server:port/database-name
You can access MongoDB database with GUI like Robo 3T https://robomongo.org . There is no username and password set by default.
Here is how it looks like,
git clone https://github.com/wekan/wekan cd wekan <SET ENV OR CREATE .env FILE> meteor npm install --save xss meteor
