This guide will document the steps to set up and run Giveth.io locally for the purposes of development.The setup process was documented using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
You'll need a couple prerequisites to get started.
- Bash CLI
- Gatsby CLI
- Configure NodeJS
- Your Favourite Code Editor (VScode for linting presets)
In order to develop locally you need to clone the backend server as well. We are using https://github.com/topiahq/impact-graph for this.
- via the CLI:git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:topiahq/impact-graph.gitcd impact-graphnpm icp .env.example .env

Head on over to https://github.com/Giveth/giveth-2 and clone the repo.
- via the CLI:git clone email@example.com:Giveth/giveth-2.gitcd giveth-2npm i

Navigate into the giveth-2 directory
Open the workspace file
Install recommended extensions (Prettier and StandardJS plugins)
Then fire up the local development server.gatsby develop
Open up the giveth2 repo on your code editor.
