  • NodeJS v10+
  • Yarn
  • Docker

Run the app

Install all packages used by the monorepo. You only have to run this once at the root of the repo.

  • yarn install

Make sure the following ports are available on your machine:

  • 3309 - used by the db container (MySQL)
  • 3003 - used by the server container (Express)
  • 4200 - used by the webclient container (Angular)
  • 8080 - used by the adminer container (MySQL Web Client)

Start up the docker containers.

  • docker-compose up -d

On the initial run the server docker container will throw errors saying it cannot connect to the DB. Wait until the db container starts accepting connections, and then the server container should stop throwing errors, and manage to sync the models into the DB.

After all containers are up and running, fill in the DB with dummy data by running this at the root of the repo. You can run it every time you want to reset your DB data.

  • yarn reseed

The webclient server takes a bit longer to start up. When it's finished you should see this message in it's logs:

** Angular Live Development Server is listening on, open your browser on http://localhost:4200/ **
: Compiled successfully.

After the webclient is up and running, you can launch the app at http://localhost:4200 and see the challenge.

Make sure you keep an eye on the containers' logs while working on the challenge, as sometimes you might have to restart some containers (looking at you Angular). You can always stop the container and run the process locally if that's easier for you.

Using Adminer

If you don't have a MySQL client installed, you can use Adminer which is started at http://localhost:8080. Use the following data on form to login:

System: MySQL
Server: db
Username: root
Password: example
Database: sldb

Running tests

With the existing setup you can run tests for both the server and the webclient. The integration tests on the backend use a separate db (sldbtest), but the data seed is the same and gets run at the beginning of a test session. Check out the test commands from both packages.
