To run locally

Make sure to install and run PostgreSQL first. There are a list of package.json scripts that include core sequelize migrations and seeds.

brew update
brew install postgres

Then you'll need to adjust the config file config/config.js to suit your setup.

Then run yarn reset and your db will create from scratch and seed data under the db name seedpress_dev.

Running yarn dev will start your dev server where needed.


You'll need to setup the test server using yarn resettest. To trigger the mocha/chai tests enter:

yarn test


There is a postman collection file for API testing and development in test/seedpress-api.postman_collection.json. It contains scripts and basic CRUD for:

  • /auth

    • [POST] Register (/register)
    • [POST] Login (/login)
  • /posts

    • [POST] Single post (/ - with auth)
    • [PATCH] Single post (/:slug - with auth)
    • [DEL] Single post (/:slug - with auth)
    • [GET] All posts (/)
    • [GET] Single post (/:slug)

To deploy on Heroku

heroku login
heroku create
git push heroku master

Sequelize ORM

Seedpress uses Sequelise ORM to interact with Postgres. Install globally on your dev machine using yarn global sequelize-cli then run commands with sequelize or alternately run commands locally in your dev folder with the built in dev package ./node_modules/.bin/sequelize init.
