Being a full-stack product, the backend and the frontend should be compiled and started separately. Before starting to compile the product, make sure you have the following tools installed in the environment:

  • NodeJS - version 14.x or higher
  • GIT - used to clone tjhe sources from Github
  • Python3 - used in many tools

👉 Start the Frontend

Step 1 - Once the project is downloaded, change the directory to react-ui.

$ cd react-ui

Step 2 - Install dependencies via NPM or yarn

$ npm i
// OR
$ yarn

Step 3 - Start in development mode

$ npm run start 
// OR
$ yarn start

At this point, the app is available in the browser localhost:3000 (the default address).

👉 Start the Backend Server

Step 1 - Change the directory to api-server-django

$ cd api-server-django

Step 2 - Install dependencies using a virtual environment

$ # Virtualenv modules installation (Unix based systems)
$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate
$ # Virtualenv modules installation (Windows based systems)
$ # virtualenv env
$ # .\env\Scripts\activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Step 3 - Setup the database

$ python makemigrations
$ python migrate

Step 4 - Start the API server (development mode)

$ python runserver 5000

Use the API via POSTMAN or Swagger Dashboard at localhost:5000.
