hexpm alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Examples and funny stuff" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of hexpm or a related project?
To contribute to Hexpm you need to properly set up your development environment.
Also see the client repository: hex. The client uses
hexpm for integration tests, so
hexpm needs to support all versions the client supports. Travis tests ensures that tests are run on all supported versions.
mix setupto install dependencies, create and seed database etc
iex -S mix phx.serverand visit http://localhost:4000/
After this succeeds you should be good to go!
setup alias in mix.exs](./mix.exs) and sections below for more information or when you run into issues.
PostgreSQL Modules And Version
PostgreSQL version should be >= 9.4, as Hexpm uses the
jsonb type, that is available from PostgreSQL 9.4 onward.
This is located in the "postgresql-contrib" package, however the package name can vary depending on your operating system. If the module is not installed the ecto migrations will fail.
By default, Hexpm connects to a localhost PostgreSQL database
hexpm_dev using the username
postgres with the password
Create the database and user 'postgres' if not already done:
CREATE USER postgres; ALTER USER postgres PASSWORD 'postgres'; CREATE DATABASE hexpm_dev; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE hexpm_dev TO postgres; ALTER USER postgres WITH SUPERUSER; -- if you also want to setup the test database CREATE DATABASE hexpm_test; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE hexpm_test TO postgres;
Now you are fine to run the ecto migrations:
Using the following command you can seed your local Hexpm instance with some sample data:
mix run priv/repo/seeds.exs
For assets compilation we need to install Node dependencies:
cd assets && yarn install
If you don't have yarn installed,
cd assets && npm install will work too.
Once the database is set up you can start Hexpm:
# with console iex -S mix phx.server # without console mix phx.server
Hexpm will be available at http://localhost:4000/.
