Developer Quick Start
A priority of Raytha is to keep the technology footprint small for getting up and running as quickly as possible. However, you do need the minimum requirements listed below:
- .NET 6+
- SQL Server Express
- Visual Studio 2022 or VS Code. All tutorials will assume Visual Studio.
The steps to run Raytha locally are that of any typical .NET application.
- Clone this repository into your local directory.
git clone https://github.com/RaythaHQ/raytha.git
Ensure your appsettings.config has a valid database connection string and SMTP credentials. If you do not have access to an SMTP server for local development, check out Papercut-SMTP. Super convenient.
Make sure Raytha.Web is set as the Default Project. Open the
Package Manager Consoleand run Entity Framework database migrations:
dotnet ef database update --project .\src\Raytha.Infrastructure --startup-project .\src\Raytha.Web
Alternatively you can create your database manually and then run the
FreshCreateOnLatestVersion.sql script in the /db directory.
- Compile and run. If everything works, the first screen you see will be an Initial Setup screen. Complete the details and you are good to go.
