How to build the open source client
- Install Node.js
- Install Yarn:
npm install -g yarn
.envin order to run the app in a local environment
yarn start and Wire's web app will be available at: http://localhost:8080/auth/#login
To login with your existing Wire account use: http://localhost:8080/auth/?env=prod#login
To launch the full test suite (types check + linting + server tests + app tests), simply run
Alternatively, you can run specific parts of the app:
Since the test suite for the app is the biggest test suite, you might want to run a single test file, in which case, you can use the
yarn test:app --specs spec1[,spec2...]
specN is the path to the spec to run relative to
test/unit_tests and without
Speed up testing for files fully migrated to the module system
When a file (and all its dependencies) does not rely on any global dependency (i.e.
window.z.util), then you can use the
--nolegacy flag to run the tests on that single file:
yarn test:app --specs spec1 --nolegacy
The test should start very quickly (webpack won't have to resolve all the global dependencies).
If the test doesn't run with the
nolegacy option (but runs without), it means it's depending on at least one dependency from the global
If you want to run the tests for the
ConversationRepository, the file containing the test is:
The command to run is:
yarn test:app --specs conversation/ConversationRepository
|1 (Feature development)||edge||commit||wire-webapp-edge||Staging|
|2 (Nightly test automation)||dev||commit or squash merge from edge||wire-webapp-dev||Staging|
|3 (Internal release)||dev||tag (format: YYYY-MM-DD-staging.X)||wire-webapp-staging||Production|
|4 (RC testing)||master||merge (don't squash) from "dev"; afterwards generate release notes||wire-webapp-master||Staging|
|5 (Production release)||master||tag (format: YYYY-MM-DD-production.X)||wire-webapp-prod||Production|
Staging Bumps for internal releases
- Checkout commit ID which has been approved by QA team
- Create a Git tag with the following format:
- Push the newly created tag
git checkout 90fda951916f0d60a5bffce69a7267830e313391 git tag 2019-04-23-staging.0 git push origin --tags
If everything is done right, you will see a Travis CI job in the build pipeline based on the new tag:
Before RC testing we create a merge commit (don't squash!) from "dev" to "master" branch, so that our QA team can run tests on the latest version of our app.
Similar to "Staging Bumps" with the exception that tags are made from "master" branch and contain "production" in the tag name instead of "staging". Example:
Release notes need to be generated with
yarn changelog after merging to "master" and before creating the new production release tag. Release notes will be locally available (not committed to the repository) in ./CHANGELOG.md and sent to our marketing team to create release notes on Medium.
Based on the Git branch, builds get deployed automatically by Travis CI. In case Travis CI is not working, a manual deployment can be triggered using
