Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.

Prerequisites

To install Hubl, you'll need:

Before diving in you have to check your Hubl Server supports the following LDP packages:

  • djangoldp_account
  • djangoldp_community
  • djangoldp_notification
  • djangoldp_profile
  • djangoldp_skill
  • djangoldp_uploader
  • oidc_provider: django-webidoidc-provider

Those packages are given with the last stable version tested.

Refer to the documentation to install a Hubl Server with this configuration.

Build the application

In order to find your server(s) the client application needs to be assembled with the proper configuration.

Get the code of the Hubl on your machine:

git clone ...
cd hubl
npm install

Then create a config.json based on your needs, see Mandatory and Optional Modules on this page. For convienence a config.sample.json exists in the source.

Then build your new Hubl:

npm run build

The application bundle is in the dist folder, ready to be deployed everywhere as a static file.

Developpers

Serve, watch files & rebuild on change with this command:

npm run watch

Multiple config.json

You can have as many config.*.json as you need.

Watch on a custom config file:

CONFIG_PATH='config.customName.json' npm run watch

Build with a custom config file:

CONFIG_PATH='config.customName.json' npm run build

Mandatory modules

By default, a Hubl includes only individual chat modules.

Run with a local binding on localhost:

docker-compose build
docker-compose up -d client server

Use in CI context:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml build
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml up -d client server
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml run --rm e2e

Build and push the server to registry:

docker build -f docker/djangoldp.docker --build-arg serve="http://localhost:8000" -t registry.startinblox.com/applications/hubl/server:0.1 .
docker push registry.startinblox.com/applications/hubl/server:0.1

Note: within a Kubernetes pod all services are bound to localhost.

Troubleshooting

Circles or Projects are missing the @user list

Did you properly created subscriptions on your DjangoLDP's server? You can quickly create them with ./manage.py create_subscriptions
