Code samples

Here is a sample code that will help you to get into our project. This will show how we would create a dumb CloseButton component in react:

import React from 'react';
import { IconButton } from 'material-ui';

const CloseButton = (props) => {
  const styles = {
    style: {
      position: 'absolute',
      top: 10,
      right: 10
    iconStyle: {
      color: '#b8c0c9'

  return (
      style={{, }}
      iconStyle={{ ...styles.iconStyle, ...props.iconStyle }}

export default CloseButton;

and then use it in PageIntro so user can close it, like this:

import React from 'react';
import { colors as Colors } from 'material-ui/styles';
import CloseButton from '../CloseButton/';

const PageIntro = ({ headline, text, actions, onRequestClose, show = 'true' }) => {
  const styles = {
    main: {
      marginBottom: 24,
      padding: 32,
      background: 'rgba(243, 243, 243, 0.901961)',
      textAlign: 'center',
      position: 'relative'
    headline: {
      marginBottom: 24,
      fontSize: 28,
      color: Colors.grey900,
      lineHeight: 1
    text: {
      margin: 0,
      maxWidth: 640,
      marginLeft: 'auto',
      marginRight: 'auto',
      fontSize: 16,
      lineHeight: '1.5em'
    actions: {
      marginTop: 32

  if (show === 'false') {
    return null;

  return (
    <div style={styles.main}>
      {headline && <div style={styles.headline}>{headline}</div>}
      {text && <div style={styles.text}>{text}</div>}
      {actions && <div style={styles.actions}>{actions}</div>}
      {onRequestClose && <CloseButton onTouchTap={onRequestClose} />}

export default PageIntro;



Dashboard is powered by Node. You will need to install 7.0.0 version, as it is current that we are using. It should come with npm in 3.10.8 version.

Without proper node version everything tends to blow up 🔥 !

Recommended way to manage node versions is n.

If you already have other version of node, just install n:

$ sudo yarn install -g n
$ n 7.0.0

And then type n to prompt selection of an installed node. Use the up / down arrow to navigate, and press enter or the right arrow to select, or ^C to cancel:

$ n

  ο 7.0.0

E2E Tests

For E2E testing we use nightwatchjs which is an automated UI testing framework powered by Node. It uses Selenium WebDriver API.

To start selenium you will also need:

All other necessary dependencies will be installed with dashboard and when starting tests for the first time.


You will need Node, if you already have it follow instructions, if not refer to Requirements section.

To install dependencies just do:

$ cd syncano-dashboard/
$ yarn install

and start local development server (available at https://localhost:8080/):

$ yarn start


Some parts of the dashboard (Billing and Social Logins) connect with external services like Stripe, Facebook etc. If you'd like to make them work locally, you'll have to create your own apps that utilize these services. Once you've done this, export appropriate keys, as shown below.

We also have some other commands or exports necessary for other parts of development. They are also listed in this section.

Social login

Social login requires proper configuration of env variables with network ids e.g:

$ export FACEBOOK_ID='xx'
$ export GOOGLE_ID='xx'
$ export GITHUB_ID='xx'

Thus you will have to create:


For billing to work, you'll have to create a Stripe account and then:



We are using set of Material Design Icons. Icons are attached as font in static assets src/assets so if you want to rebuild whole font just use npm command:

$ yarn run iconfont

and commit your changes.



You will need to export E2E_EMAIL and E2E_PASSWORD for test account creation.

$ export E2E_EMAIL="xx"
$ export E2E_PASSWORD="xx"

It should be your Syncano account email address and password.

Running tests

⚠️ Our current E2E test are in testing phase, and they run on your Syncano account. Please be careful what you do.

ℹ️ E2E tests require development server to be running, be sure to start it.

E2E Test can be started by typing:

$ yarn run e2e

If you want only one test suite to run use:

$ yarn run e2e <tag>

Refer to the test files for the appropriate tag name.

If part of the tests fail for some reason, please check your configuration. When it appeared after your changes be sure to fix tests, if that is not the case please fill in the issue.
