Note: The project is at an early stage phase, it's not yet ready for integration.
This is the mobile version of Gutenberg, targeting Android and iOS. It's a React Native library bootstrapped by CRNA and now ejected.
For a developer experience closer to the one the project maintainers current have, make sure you have the following tools installed:
- Node.js and npm (use nvm to install them)
- yarn (
npm install -g yarn)
- AndroidStudio to be able to compile the Android version of the app
- Xcode to be able to compile the iOS app
- Carthage needed for fetching the Aztec dependency.
Note that the OS platform used by the maintainers is macOS but the tools and setup should be usable in other platforms too.
Clone the project
- Clone the project and submodules:
$ git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/gutenberg-mobile.git
- Or if you already have the project cloned, initialize and update the submodules:
$ git submodule init $ git submodule update
Before running the demo app, you need to download and install the project dependencies. This is done via the following command:
Runs the packager (Metro) in development mode. The packager stays running to serve the app bundle to the clients that request it.
With the packager running, open another terminal window and use the following command to compile and run the Android app:
To compile and run the iOS variant of the app, use:
which will attempt to open your app in the iOS Simulator if you're on a Mac and have it installed.
When things seem crazy
Some times, and especially when tweaking anything in the
package.json, Babel configuration (
.babelrc) or the Jest configuration (
jest.config.js), your changes might seem to not take effect as expected. On those times, you might need to clean various caches before starting the packager. To do that, run the script:
yarn start:reset. Other times, you might want to reinstall the NPM packages from scratch and the
yarn clean:install script can be handy.
Developing with Visual Studio Code
Although you're not required to use Visual Studio Code for developing gutenberg-mobile, it is the recommended IDE and we have some configuration for it.
When you first open the project in Visual Studio, you will be prompted to install some recommended extensions. This will help with some things like type checking and debugging.
One of the extensions we are using is the React Native Tools. This allows you to run the packager from VSCode or launch the application on iOS or Android. It also adds some debug configurations so you can set breakpoints and debug the application directly from VSCode. Take a look at the extension documentation for more details.
Use the following command to run the test suite:
It will run the jest test runner on your tests. The tests are running on the desktop against Node.js.
To run the tests with debugger support, start it with the following CLI command:
chrome://inspect in Chrome to attach the debugger (look into the "Remote Target" section). While testing/developing, feel free to springle
debugger statements anywhere in the code that you'd like the debugger to break.
Writing and Running Tests
This project is set up to use jest for tests. You can configure whatever testing strategy you like, but jest works out of the box. Create test files in directories called
__tests__ or with the
.test.js extension to have the files loaded by jest. See the the template project for an example test. The jest documentation is also a wonderful resource, as is the React Native testing tutorial.
Static analysis and code style
The project includes a linter (
eslint) to perform codestyle and static analysis of the code. The configuration used it the same as the one in the Gutenerg project. To perform the check, run:
To have the linter also fix the violations run:
In parallel to
eslint the project uses
Prettier for codestyling. Run:
to enforce the style. This will modify the source files to make them comform to the rules.
You might want to use Visual Studio Code as an editor. The project includes the configuration needed to use the above codestyle and lint tools automatically.
