Set up local development environment
- Download Node.js and npm at https://nodejs.org/en/download/. You need at least Node version 7.6 because Wikidocumentaries uses Async, which in only supported since that version (https://www.infoq.com/news/2017/02/node-76-async-await).
- Clone the repositories from GitHub to your local hard drive
- Edit wikidocumentaries-ui/src/store/store.js. Change the constant
const BASE_URLto the local address by commenting out the server address:
const BASE_URL = "http://localhost:3000/" //const BASE_URL = "https://wikidocumentaries-api.wmflabs.org/"
Note: Never upload this edit!
- Set environment variables. There are three environment variables to define. You can get ask for them in the developer Slack or mail email@example.com. In a Mac (bash) you can define them like this:
export WIKIDOCUMENTARIES_API_USER_AGENT=<email address> export FLICKR_KEY=<flickr key> export BING_MAPS_KEY=<maps key>
- Install: Go to each directory and run
- Run: Go to each directory and run
npm run dev
Wikimedia and project accounts
- Get a Wikimedia account (the same account for all Wikipedias, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata etc.) e.g. https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:UserLogin
- Get the Wikimedia developer account > Registration instructions under "VPS and General Users". The same key and password let you access The Wikimedia Cloud Services at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org and the git repositories located at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/. You are also creating a separate Shell account. Read also:
- Create an account in Wikimedia Phabricator
- Ask to join the codebase in GitHub
- Ask for an account to edit this wiki
Communication channels for developers
- Wikidocumentaries Github repository
- Wikidocumentaries Phabricator project
- Wikidocumentaries Slack channel Developers in channel #technology.
