Development setup πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

  1. πŸš€ Set up your local development environment
  2. πŸ› Pick a good first issue
  3. πŸ‘©β€πŸ”§ Create a branch and make your changes. Remember to sign off your commits using git commit -sm "Your commit message"
  4. ⬆ Create a pull request and @mention the people from the issue to review
  5. πŸ‘ Fix things that come up during review
  6. πŸŽ‰ Wait for it to get merged!

Third-party components are handled as git submodules which have to be initialized first. So aside from the regular git checkout invoking git submodule update --init or a similar command is needed, for details see Git documentation.

Several apps that are included by default in regular releases such as First run wizard or Activity are missing in master and have to be installed manually by cloning them into the apps subfolder.

Otherwise, git checkouts can be handled the same as release archives, by using the stable* branches. Note they should never be used on production systems.

Building front-end code πŸ—

We move more and more towards using Vue.js in the frontend, starting with Settings. For building the code on changes, use these terminal commands in the root folder:

# install dependencies
make dev-setup

# build for development
make build-js

# build for development and watch edits
make watch-js

# build for production with minification
make build-js-production

When making changes, also commit the compiled files!

We still use Handlebars templates some places in Files and Settings. We will replace these step-by-step with Vue.js, but in the meantime you need to compile them separately.

If you don’t have Handlebars installed yet, you can do it with this terminal command:

sudo npm install -g handlebars

Then inside the root folder of your local Nextcloud development installation, run this command in the terminal every time you changed a .handlebars file to compile it:

./build/compile-handlebars-templates.sh
