Hi there, you are probably new to the project. Here you can find a quick overview of what you can expect and what is expected from you as a contributor.
The codebase is all TypeScript and NodeJS. For more info please see the Technical Direction. We use NX to manage the monorepo structure. We have one set of NodeJS modules used by all code and any changes in there affect potentially multiple services.
scripts and server-side framework
monorepo tools and code scaffolding
front-end framework with routing and server side rendering
develop and document React components in isolation
generate GraphQL clients and types
automated browser testing tool
API mocking for webapps
We use NestJS for the backend. Use the pre-packaged setup that we have and you will save us all some time. You can find the latest and greatest in how we setup a backend in our reference-backend
server-side framework for NodeJS
database object relational mapper
generate clients and types for OpenAPI APIs
api protocol for our frontend projects
specification to describe rest apis
Applications are composed of services that are packaged in Docker containers and then deployed in a Kubernetes cluster using Helm. You will hardly need to know about this if you follow the path everyone else in the organization is walking. All our environments are hosted in AWS.
virtual machine containers for continuous integration and deployment
host docker containers in production
kubernetes deployment configuration
To contribute you need to follow the standard GitHub Pull Request (PR) workflow. When you open a PR, your code will be run through the CI process automatically. Ask for a code-review and when you get an approval, merge to
main. Rinse and repeat.
When a code change gets on
main, that will create Docker containers for all services and everything will get deployed to
Devenv. For more info please see the Continuous Delivery process.
We expect contributors to deliver the following:
You simply need to add an NX target to your service to enable creating a Docker image for it. For more info see dockerizing.
We have a Helm chart template that should fit most services. You pretty much only need to add your ingress (optional), environment variables(optional) and secrets(optional) and your service can get deployed to Dev. For more info, please see Helm charts.
