README

Packagist

Package Repository Website for Composer, see the about page on packagist.org for more.

This project is not meant for re-use.

It is open source to make it easy to contribute. We provide no support if you want to run your own, and will do breaking changes without notice.

Check out Private Packagist if you want to host your own packages.

Development

These steps are provided for development purposes only.

Requirements

  • PHP for the web app
  • NPM for the frontend build
  • Symfony CLI to run the web server
  • MySQL (or Docker) for the main data store
  • Redis (or Docker) for some functionality (favorites, download statistics)
  • git / svn / hg depending on which repositories you want to support

Installation

  1. Clone the repository
  2. Install dependencies: bash composer install npm install
  3. Start the web server: bash symfony serve
  4. Start MySQL & Redis: bash docker-compose up -d # or somehow run MySQL & Redis on localhost without docker
  5. Create 2 databases:
    • packagist - for the web app
    • packagist_test - for running the tests bash bin/console doctrine:database:create bin/console doctrine:database:create --env=test
  6. Setup the database schema: bash bin/console doctrine:schema:create
  7. Run a CRON job bin/console packagist:run-workers to make sure packages update.
  8. Run npm run build or npm run dev to build (or build&watch) css/js files.

You should now be able to access the site, create a user, etc.

Fixtures

You can get test data by running the fixtures:

bin/console doctrine:fixtures:load

This will create 100 packages from packagist.org, update them from GitHub, populate them with fake download stats, and assign a user named dev (with password: dev) as their maintainer.

Search

To use the search in your local development environment, setup an Algolia Account and configure following keys in your .env.local:

ALGOLIA_APP_ID=
ALGOLIA_ADMIN_KEY=
ALGOLIA_SEARCH_KEY=
ALGOLIA_INDEX_NAME=

To setup the search index, run:

bin/console algolia:configure
bin/console packagist:index
