dev.to open source help/discussion thread (v0)

This is the starting point for getting help on any issue relating to working with the dev.to open source project. This thread will act as an FAQ destination of sorts. Do not feel shy posting here, we'll continuously keep an eye on this thread and we urge anyone to hop in to help in any way they can.

We will occasionally start new threads with an updated version number to keep up with the state of the project as things change over time and information in here become out of date.

We plan to eventually use DEV Connect channels as sort of breakout rooms for different parts of the project, but not as one massive room. The specifics of how weโ€™ll leverage Connect rooms is a bit to be determined.

I urge folks involved in the project to hit the save button (๐Ÿ”–) to track discussion in these threads in your reading list comment activity area.

Happy coding โค๏ธ

I have similar issue running bundle install

bundle install
Your Ruby version is 2.0.0, but your Gemfile specified 2.5.1

only have Ruby 2.5.1 installed.

 ~/.rbenv/versions
โฏ ls
2.5.1

I have tried restarting terminal and machine both just to clear cache if there's any.

Did you set 2.5.1 as the global version?

According to karloespiritu.github.io/cheatsheet... you need to type: rbenv global 2.5.1, otherwise it uses the default version shipped with the OS

When you are in the directory of the project, what does rbenv version say?

rbenv version
2.5.1 (set by /Users/awdesh/Documents/source/sandbox/dev.to/.ruby-version)

I feel like something is messed up with the /etc/paths/ although can't seem to figure it out. I am following this link here-: stackoverflow.com/questions/873067...

What's the output of ruby -v compared to rbenv version?

Try running rbenv shell 2.5.1 and then running bundle.

If not, a reinstall of 2.5.1 might help:

rbenv uninstall 2.5.1
# restart terminal
rbenv install 2.5.1
# install complete; restart terminal
ruby -v
#=> ruby -v version
rbenv version
#=> rbenv version

Let me know how it goes!

Ah, your bundle install might be running from your old Ruby version as opposed to the latest one.

Try running which gem and which bundle. You should be seeing something similar to this output:

which gem
#=> /Users/username/.rbenv/shims/gem
:which ruby
#=> /Users/username/.rbenv/shims/ruby
:which bundle
#=> /Users/username/.rbenv/shims/bundle

If it's different, you'll probably see that bundle or gem are running from different paths than ruby.

That did it. Thanks for the tip.

gem and ruby paths were same but bundle. I updated the PATH for bundle gem file using BUNDLE_GEMFILE

export BUNDLE_GEMFILE=/Users/awdesh/.rbenv/shims/bundle

restarted terminal

bundle install  #worked.

Awesome! Glad to know it worked. From my experience, it's "cleaner" to reinstall your gems per version, but I'm not too sure if it matters too much.

Hey, I am currently working on some night mode bugs and my work mainly works on editing scss/css files,
nevertheless I want to run a local setup of the application in an attempt to check the changes I am making.
I am having the same error as above only that dev.to required ruby version 2.6.1 but it seems to be picking up 2.3.7 from my system macOS
I have followed all the steps but to no use, I have little to no experience in ruby. could use your help in the same.

I don't have a ton of ruby experience so I actually ran into what I thought was a problem installing ruby with rbenv. I just wanted to share my experience here in case others run into the same issue.

I started by installing rbenv with homebrew.

~ $ brew install rbenv

No issues, cool. Then I went to install the current ruby version of 2.6.1 in rbenv but it kept hanging on the following line.

~ $ rbenv install 2.6.1
ruby-build: use openssl from homebrew
Downloading ruby-2.6.1.tar.bz2...
-> https://cache.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/2.6/ruby-2.6.1.tar.bz2
Installing ruby-2.6.1...
ruby-build: use readline from homebrew

I kept canceling out of it thinking it was stuck but it was actually building in the background. The installer could use some work giving users some sort of visual feedback that it's actually building. I looked it up and stumbled on to a GitHub issue about it: github.com/rbenv/ruby-build/issues...

One of the comments mentioned that you can actually use the install -v flag when installing with rbenv to get a verbose output of the build process in your terminal. I then ran the following:

~ $ rbenv install -v 2.6.1

And no more hanging on readline! It will fill your terminal window with build logs but at least you know it's working.

Hope this helps someone!

Here's something I ran into as I'm going through the setup instructions, in case anyone else has the same problem.

When I did gem install bundler, I got this error message:

Fetching: bundler-1.16.5.gem (100%)
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)
    You don't have write permissions for the /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.3.0 directory.

It might have occurred because I uninstalled rvm (using rvm implode ) after installing rbenv.

The fix (found here ) was to add eval "$(rbenv init -)" to my .bash_profile (then do source ~/.bash_profile). After that gem install bundler worked.

Hey Tristan, definitely not a stupid question :)

It's probably a bit early to realistically stand up a fully self-hosted instance of DEV.

If your company is sharing technical content that is for public consumption, you're welcome to set up an organization account on the production site. You can look at Heroku as an example. You never know what might help other users.

@ben will follow up with a bit more info and context.

Yeah, org accounts are the recommended way to go right now, but the instance direction is something we could start working on right away, as long as weโ€™re willing to be patient along the way.

So that area has to be thought of as really theoretical at this point, but being an early adopter of that path could be very powerful, so you are welcome to volunteer to become part of our early group who might start thinking about that use case. Let me know if youโ€™d like me to keep you in the loop.

Does anyone know how to update the built-in version of ruby on Mac?

โžœ  ~ ruby -v
ruby 2.3.7p456 (2018-03-28 revision 63024) [universal.x86_64-darwin17]

ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [x86_64-darwin17]

I ended up getting around it by using RubyMine and telling it to use the brew version for the dev.to environment, and then I set up the bin scripts as run configurations.

Since I had ruby 2.5.1 installed, I wasn't terribly inclined to download RVM just so it could download its own version of ruby, too. I just don't think this was the most optimal way of fixing my version issues.

(And as someone who never used postgressql before, that part was not intuative at all... but I have no clue how to fix that in the docs, since I was bumbling my way through it)

I use RVM because I have different projects using different versions of Ruby and it's useful for that:

โžœ  ~ rvm list
   ruby-2.3.0 [ x86_64 ]
   ruby-2.4.3 [ x86_64 ]
=* ruby-2.5.1 [ x86_64 ]

# => - current
# =* - current && default
#  * - default

(And as someone who never used postgressql before, that part was not intuative at all... but I have no clue how to fix that in the docs, since I was bumbling my way through it)

Can you please articulate what issues did you have? I think it's very important because a difficult onboarding can be a turn off for first contributors. Thank you!

My issue was trying to figure out how to articulate it late at night ;)

I think the issues started with completely blowing past the hey you need to install this stuff first section of the README and just starting to get the local build working with stuff like api keys and bundle install. And since I was having issues with the ruby version, I was inclined to think all my issues were around ruby rather than the db.

The biggest thing after needing it installed was needing to have it run before running anything. The installation was lumped with installing things like bundle and yarn which are more hands-off, so it wasn't clear that after installing the prereqs, I should actually start the db and that it wasn't handled in the bin scripts like everything else.

Then I wanted to actually see what was in the db, so I hunted through the configs and internet to see how to find the settings of the db that's created to connect to it within RubyMine.

It wasn't anything really hard or missing, just stuff that wasn't obvious as someone not in the stack.

Ah gotcha, we'll shore that up for the next iteration. What sort of issues are you having right now with it?

Does anyone know how to update the built-in version of ruby on Mac?

Are you using a Ruby version manager? You probably have rbenv or rvm installed.

Are you using a Ruby version manager?

As far as I know, I have not because I'm not a Rubyish person, but I can check once I get home. I knew I brew installed it and would have installed it way back when for brew (since I'm pretty sure brew runs on ruby) but otherwise I don't recall ever doing anything with ruby.

What sort of issues are you having right now with it?

Right now, nothing, since I was eventually able to get local dev.to up and running to get my screenshots for my PR :) Originally, though, since I was only installing it to use dev.to, I didn't:

  1. have it installed (ended up installing it outside of the recommended path since I was trying to solve ruby errors rather than continue reading the readme and find what I skipped over)
  2. have it running (lots of googling eventually found me to where a blog somewhere listed the command to run it)
  3. or how to access it (I loved the seed data scripts but wanted to add a user with specific data to hit my cases... I ended up setting up Github integration to use myself, but eventually figured out how to list known databases and then I could use RubyMine's built-in db handling to modify local data)

Like, reading the section of hey install this stuff didn't really click with me to actually run the database and that it was not a part of the bin scripts.

Hm that's strange. Try these two things:

  1. You're probably doing this correctly already, but make sure you're setting the keys in config/application.yml and not sample_application.yml.
  2. You might be running into a spring error, which is a Rails app preloader. If spring is running, it'll run bin commands for you, but sometimes doesn't refresh when you change things like environment variables. Try turning it off with spring stop and then running bin/setup again.

Spring wasn't actually running, but I figured out what the issue was.

When I ran git status, it seemed like I accidentally made some changes to config/application.rb. I undid those changes and now bin/setup works.

Thanks for trying to help though!

Hello everyone!
I'm trying to write specs for login/signup procedure.
I've inspected the code and came out with these potential scenarios.
Can someone help me to correct, validate, refine these scenarios to met the reality?
(I follow the format ---> )

1 User never login before

create new user
create new identity
update user data
create session
go to welcome page

2 User second login with same provider

find existing user
find existing identity
update user data
create session
go to dashboard

3 User second login with other provider

find existing user
create new identity
update user data
create session
go to dashboard

4 User revoked authorization on twitter, login and re-authorizes

find existing user
find existing identity
update user data
create session
go to dashboard
Error cases โ€”โ€”

5 Twitter doesnโ€™t provide enough information for the user (letโ€™s say uid is nil)

don't create session
go to back to same page
display error message Twitter authorization problem. Try again later

Yep, that sounds right. We have a feature test for Twitter auth /spec/features/user_logs_in_with_twitter_spec.rb and some other tests for registration in spec/models/user_spec.rb#270. Those should be helpful for see what else would need coverage.

Hmm, not sure what that's about. Do you have another server that's connected to localhost:3000? Although if you do, you wouldn't have been able to start up the server.

Could you drop a screenshot of the browser on localhost:3000 and maybe a snippet of the server logs?

OH I think I know what it is. You might have went to localhost:3035 which is running Webpack. It might not be exactly 3035, but it's something similar and is not localhost:3000. localhost:3000 is the port for the backend Rails server, which is the one you want to visit.

It's currently randomly generated by a gem, but feel free to replace it with any other valid image. The only non-standard validation we have for images is that its dimensions have to be less than or equal to 4096x4096.

You can replace line #31 in the seeds.rb file with any URL you'd like:

# current version
remote_profile_image_url: Faker::Avatar.image(nil, "300x300", "png", "set2", "bg2")

# change to anything, like your own dev.to profile pic:
remote_profile_image_url: "https://thepracticaldev.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/user/profile_image/104515/87d99338-e340-4642-8393-e3731deb5b97.jpg"

# or use random Bill Murray images with 400x400 size:
remote_profile_image_url: Faker::Fillmurray.image(false, 400, 400)

Faker::Fillmurray docs here, if you're so inclined. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Thank you!

Yes that was it, I've now been able to get running using my own profile pic. As happy as I am that it's working now am quite sad I've not been able to use the Bill Murray Faker... ๐Ÿ˜‚

For info I was getting a 'redirect' error

ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid: Validation failed: Profile avatar could not download file: redirection forbidden:

...which seemed like it was expecting https in the url, but I couldn't find an easy way to resolve this.

But all good with a non-Faker url for the profile image ๐Ÿ‘

Hey, when are you hitting this error? We'll need some more context to help you debug. I'm guessing you tried signing in? If you're doing any sign in process, you'll need to setup the appropriate APIs. Instructions here: docs.dev.to/get-api-keys-dev-env/#...

Hi,

I have recently been learning python, HTML5 CSS3 and now Javascript for the past 3 months, and so I am quite new to all of this, but I am incredibly driven and passionate about growing and learning new things and more.

I am also new to the community scene, therefore I was hoping someone could help me learn how I can contribute and get to know others who I can work alongside and grow with.

Thanks,

I've got it running but I get a 401 unauthorized when I try to log in (using the Twitter button).

A page showing login buttons

An error page showing OAuth::Unauthorized

I'm looking to play around with editing posts and comments to look into the stale post/comment issue I've run into (maybe the same as #526, though I haven't had it give me a 404 ), which might require looking into caching stuff.

Hmm, did you set up your Twitter OAuth app? Guide here: docs.dev.to/get-api-keys-dev-env/#...

Thanks, I must have skipped that one. I'm now waiting to hear back from Twitter about my applicaiton for an API account.

Oh hmm that must be new. If you'd rather, you can make a GitHub OAuth app instead. For sign in purposes they're the same.

Hey @ben , it's my first time contribution to any open source project. I am trying to setup the project on my machine (rails version 5.2.1) but schema migrations are causing some trouble. Here take a look:

Hey @mirza, that's a current bug with the migrations since our older migrations are not forward-compatible right now. Since you're setting up for the first time, we recommend using bin/setup to setup your database from scratch. If you've setup your database already with rails db:create or rake db:create (same command), you'll need to drop it first with rails db:drop before running bin/setup.

i followed your suggestion and its now working. thanks mate! any advise for a rookie OSS contributor?

Glad it works! You can check out our issues page and work on any issues with the approved label. There should be enough context in the issue or the comments to get started. Any issues with "good first issue" is also a good start.

For OSS in general, I personally don't have much advice but that's how repo works. We try to adhere to similar standards that the OSS community has, and any feedback along the way will certainly be heard!
