The following build dependencies needs to be fulfilled to support the full feature set of this application:

The app consist of a frontend and a backend. For getting started with hacking, the backend can tested via make run-backend, whereas the frontend can be tested with make run-frontend. You can adapt the application configuration within Config.toml if needed.


If both, the backend and frontend are running, you can visit the web application at After the successful loading of the application you should see an authentication screen like this:

authentication screen

Now you are able to login with a matching username and password combination like me (username) and me (password). There is currently no further user authentication yet, but non matching combination will result in an authentication failure. After the successfully login you should be able to see the content of the application:

content screen

The authentication should persist, even after a manual page reload. Logging out of the application via the logout button should also work as intended.

Control Flow

The complete control flow of the application looks like this:

To deploy the application as a docker image, simply run:

make deploy

After that you can run the application side by side with a PostgreSQL container via:

make run-app

The application should now be accessible at
