Developing Wekan for Sandstorm

Developing Wekan for Sandstorm

Wekan / General · June 26, 2019 at 4:39am (Edited 3 weeks ago)

Hello, I'm new to here and trying to add a new feature to Wekan for Sandstorm.

Is this document still up to date? https://github.com/wekan/wekan-maintainer/wiki/Building-Wekan-for-Sandstorm

I think there is a way to build from source code rather than an image to keep everything updated, or the image is always updated?

I am at the very start point of a Wekan developer, hope I can eventually reach the goal. Thank you!

              Hi @xet7, I want a filter feature that can reach archived items. Each time I need to write annual work report, I need to open every archived list and find out my items. My ideal is have a feature that I can indicate a period of time and a member (me), then I have all cards shown.

                I see the page updated, but must I use the image? Can I just clone from https://github.com/wekan/wekan, then build from step 2, and eventually run meteor-spk dev? Thank you.

                  Filter feature is same for Standalone Wekan and Sandstorm Wekan. So it would be enough that you develop it with Standalone Wekan scripts.

                    In general, Standalone Wekan and Sandstorm Wekan are the same, but with environment variables like isSandstorm some menus are hidden. There is also some different login/SSO logic in wekan/sandstorm* code files

                      Also, currently items from Archive are loaded only if Archive is clicked https://github.com/wekan/wekan/pull/2402

                        So maybe you could make some filter for Archive

                              So I would think, that you would add similar filter to Archive sidebar page

                                So that when Arhive items are loaded, then use code and filter to filter from archive

                                    I clone the code, run rebuild-wekan.sh, then start-wekan.sh, but get a Error: Cannot find module '/home/romulus/wekan/main.js'. I guess I am doing something very wrong, do you have idea?

                                      did you run rebuild-wekan.sh with first 1 to install deps and then 2 to build wekan?
