Github-Graphs

Website for visualizing a persons github network.

Example Graph

If you are lucky, you can find the site live here.

Built With

javascript

Deployment

The easiest way to get started with Github-Graphs is to fork this repository and follow the instructions below.

Create a new OAuth app

The objective of creating an app under your github account is to access an endpoint through the GitHub API and obtain credentials to set your environment file. For more information on how to create a new OAuth app, consult the corresponding Github developer documentation here.

Create a .env file

After forking this repository, run the command cd server/. Inside that folder, setup your environment credentials by creating a .env file with the code below filled in.

CLIENT_ID = <your_client_ID_from_oauth_app>
CLIENT_SECRET = <your_generated_personal_access_from_oauth_app>
SESSION_SECRET = <any_string_you_want>
PORT = <any_number>

The creation of your OAuth app and the .env file are required steps, irrespective of your desired deployment environment. For specific directions, continue by following the steps specified below.

Deployment on the local machine

Install dependencies

Dependencies are installed using npm. Therefore, please install the package manager before proceeding. If you already have npm installed, run the command below inside server/ in order to install the dependencies in the package directory.

npm install

Explore GitHub-Graphs

Inside server/, run the following command to start the program, and in your browser, check localhost:8000 to visualize your Github network.

node server.js

Deployment in a Docker container

Github-graphs can also be deployed inside a docker container and displayed in your browser through port mapping. To get started run the following commands inside your forked repository.

The easiest way to deploy in a docker container is through the use of our proposed docker-compose.yml file. If you choose this methodology, make sure the port numbers in your .env file matches the docker-compose file. Note that this approach will work only on systems which have Docker and Docker-compose both installed. Considering the example provided in our provided docker-compose, the port number of the .env file should be PORT= 8000. Therefore, you could visualize the Github-Graphs page at localhost:8080 after running:

    docker-compose up -d --build

In order to clean the environment, you can run the following command.

    docker-compose down --rmi all

Besides the use of docker-compose, deployment with just docker is possible with the following commands:\

    docker build -t <choose_name_for_image> .
    docker run -d --name <choose_name_for_container> -p <local_port_num>:<port_num_from_env_file> <name_of_image>

For instance, assume I name my image graph-app, my container github-graphs, and set the port number in my .env file to 8000, I can decide to listen on my localhost at port 8080. Therefore, my commands are:

    docker build -t graph-app .
    docker run -d --name github-graphs -p 8080:8000 graph-app

If you are willing to read the debugging statement on the CLI, do not add -d to the docker run statement.

At this step, you can now visualize Github graphs at localhost:<local_port_num>.
