  • Go: Golang >= v1.15

Project Setup for Authorizer core

  1. Fork the authorizer repository (Skip this step if you have access to repo)
  2. git clone https://github.com/authorizerdev/authorizer.git
  3. cd authorizer
  4. cp .env.sample .env. Check all the supported env here
  5. Build the code make clean && make

    Note: if you don't have make, you can cd into server dir and build using the go build command

  6. Run binary ./build/server

Testing

Make sure you test before creating PR.

If you want to test for all the databases that authorizer supports you will have to run mongodb & arangodb instances locally.

Setup mongodb & arangodb using Docker

docker run --name mongodb -d -p 27017:27017 mongo
docker run --name arangodb -d -p 8529:8529 -e ARANGO_ROOT_PASSWORD=root arangodb/arangodb:3.8.4

Note: If you are not making any changes in db schema / db operations, you can disable those db tests here

If you are adding new resolver,

  1. create new resolver test file here Naming convention filename: resolver_name_test.go function name: resolverNameTest(s TestSetup, t *testing.T)
  2. Add your tests here

Command to run tests:

make test
