# Development

If you want to contribute or just play around with the source code, the first step would be to download the source code. Then run this to get it all up and running:

docker-compose up

Please note that it could take a few seconds everything is set up. Ignore any error messages you see, this is generally because the database hasn't been migrated yet. It will do that at the end automatically. Once it's ready, it should also have a bunch of test data in there to get you started quickly.

Once it's ready, go to and you should see the login screen.

The login credentials are:

Email: admin@example.com
Password: admin

# Adding a new language

If you want to add a new language, then you will have to follow these steps:

Replace lang with the shortname of your language (e.g. nl, en, or es) in the command below

docker-compose run --rm web django-admin makemessages -l lang

It will generate a new file for you to fill in. It's a .po that you can edit (with a text editor or through one of the many tools).

Up next, you will need to add the language to the list of languages. Go to back/back/settings.py and add your language to this array https://github.com/chiefonboarding/ChiefOnboarding/blob/v2.0/back/back/settings.py#L371. That way, it will show up in the lists to choose the language.

# Updating existing translations

Simply run this command and it will update all current translations:

docker-compose run --rm web django-admin makemessages -l tr -l pt -l nl -l jp -l fr -l es -l de
