This document provides basic information about development in monorepo to make the work with packages and project-base repository as easy as possible.
If you want to contribute to Shopsys Platform or to any of its packages, clone this monorepo shopsys/shopsys.
If you want to build your project on Shopsys Platform, use composer to create project from shopsys/project-base.
Due to the growing number of new repositories, there were many situations when a developer had to reflect the same change into more than one package. It meant, that the developer had to implement this in the separated repositories of each package. This approach was inefficient and repeated process always brought increased errors rate.
Monorepo approach provides a single development environment for management of all parts of Shopsys Platform. We use Monorepo tool that splits code in appropriate repositories after some changes are made in monorepo. This splitting is initiated automatically once a day.
If you are interested, you can read more about the monorepo approach here - https://gomonorepo.org
Repositories maintained by monorepo¶
The list of these packages is maintained in the function
It is used for automated splitting of the monorepo and needs to be updated when a package is added or removed.
Monorepo can be installed and used as standard application. This requires some additional infrastructure:
docker/ - templates for configuration of docker in monorepo.
build.xml - definitions of targets for use in the monorepo, some already defined targets have modified behavior in such a way that their actions are launched over all monorepo packages
composer.json - contains the dependencies required by individual packages and by Shopsys Platform. It is not generated automatically, so each change made in the
composer.jsonof the specific package must be reflected also in
composer.jsonin the root of monorepo. In monorepo, Shopsys packages are used directly from the directory
packages/, so there are no requirements of those packages in
parameters_monorepo.yaml - overriding of global variables of Shopsys Platform, which makes it possible to run Shopsys Platform in monorepo
Installation of monorepo¶
Installation of Shopsys Platform is almost the same as is described in Installation Using Docker,
but instead of creating a new project based on
project-base repository, you have to clone
Please keep in mind that all commands have to be executed from the monorepo root directory.
Also, templates of a configuration files should be copied from
docker/ folder in root, not from
Development in monorepo¶
During the development in monorepo, it is necessary to ensure that the changes made in specific package preserve the functionality of the package even outside the monorepo.
Keep in mind that the file structure of project based on Shopsys Platform (standardly located in the root of the project) is in monorepo
located in the directory
- Package is functional in monorepo but broken outside of monorepo - ensure that every parameter required by package is available even outside the monorepo
