Running the project

These instructions should be sufficient for one to get the project going on their local machine

Installing core dependencies

  • make sure you have node.js installed version 12.13+

Local Installing DB dependencies

  • make sure you have MongoDB installed version 3.4+
  • make sure you have Redis installed version 3.2+

Docker Installing DB dependencies

Cloning the github repository

To clone the project, run

git clone

Installing the dependencies

To install the dependencies after you've cloned the project, go to its root folder and run

cd jianshu && npm install

Setting environment variables

cp .env.example  .env

Modify the corresponding values as required

Starting the MongoDB and Redis

Once you start the database application, you are ready to run the server

Boot according to your system

Notice that the server uses MongoDB and Redis so we need to have a MongoDB and Redis instance running so the server can connect to it。

If you use Docker:

docker-compose up -d

Alternative commands

If you need to work on the frontend and backend parts at the same time, you can run

npm start

Then, you can go to the Angular dev server at port 4200 and test server requests (to port 3000), we got a proxy to the backend

If you only need to work on the frontend, you can run

npm run start client

Alternatively, if you only need to work on the backend, you can run

npm run start server

Keeping in mind that you need to have the Angular app built and a MongoDB and Redis connection established



Any support is welcome. At least you can give us a star ⭐️
