[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @will @Jason just experimenting with codifferous.. sent you invites but I haven't really figured out how this works yet

[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] @all does require one to be logged in? the reason i ask is because on navigating to list view I am redirected to login screen after a few seconds

[Patrick Mutwiri] Successfully installed node

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] awesome Patrick!!
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] @Vaibhav yup -- username: demo, password: testing
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] thx. i actually wanted to confirm if having a login was intentional because the list does render and shows the data when i am not logged in. only after a few seconds does it redirect to the login screen
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] interesting -- can you log this on git?
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] will do

[b3free] hi guys!
[b3free] I'm trying to install ushahidi v3.. but I having some problems..
Aug 21 2015 19:52
[b3free] I got to have some api ansewring.. i got the endpoint list
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] hey b3free! Do you see a JSON output with a list of endpoints?
[b3free] but when I try to access the site.. I got 404 on /api/v3/config/site
[b3free] yes
[b3free] ushgitterbot: yes
[b3free] thx Jason for helping
[b3free] if you can
[b3free] :)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] ok, we need to point your client to the API
[b3free] i've some strange port .. could be a problem=
[b3free] ?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] do you see a .env file in the platform-client directory?
[b3free] I mean.. API is on a port
[b3free] Front End on another
[b3free] yeah. I set the .env file
Aug 21 2015 19:57
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] What do you have for BACKEND_URL?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] the URL you use to get the JSON with the end point is what you should have there
[b3free] yeah,,
[b3free] that one
[b3free] and my front end its on
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] could you put BACKEND_URL=
[b3free] yes.. I've that way
Aug 21 2015 20:04
[b3free] on the backend is there other url to test the api directly?
[b3free] I mean..
[b3free] ?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] sorry, you should be able to call urls on the site and get responses
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] and the responses will be in JSON format as well
[b3free] yes.. any url to test?
[b3free] couse the main one seems to work
Aug 21 2015 20:11
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] yes and the rest give a 404 error from Apache
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] did you use this:
[b3free] yes
[b3free] so.. it seems some apache config problem..
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] it might be
[b3free] my DocumentRoot /var/www/ushahidi/platform/httpdocs/
Aug 21 2015 20:16
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] did you enable rewriting?
[b3free] yes
[b3free] I suppose it's something related to different port
Aug 21 2015 20:21
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] is mod_rewrite enabled?
[b3free] yes
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] btw, you can call directly to test the API
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] I think you probably want to check rewriting because to get to the API you need to do this:
Aug 21 2015 20:28
[b3free] ah!
[b3free] ok.. it's a new step :)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] yeah, so we need to hide index.php :-)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] you copied template.htaccess?
Aug 21 2015 20:34
[b3free] no.. rewrite.htaccess.. i think
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] ok on there's a section called Set up URL rewrites
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] it also gives you an alternative if you change index_file in init.php
[b3free] ah.. ok.. yes.. i did that way..
Aug 21 2015 20:41
[b3free] no luck yet
[b3free] is it using develpoment environment yet?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] could you try to change your BACKEND_URL to
[b3free] it seems to use also config.js
[b3free] yeah!
[b3free] something new
[b3free] but I set on server/www/config.js
[b3free] that's undocumented
[b3free] is it ok?
Aug 21 2015 20:50
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] yeah but you could set on the .env file so that gulp also picks it up during a build
[b3free] uhm.. ah..ok
[b3free] thx for helping
[b3free] do you know if localization is working?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] localization is handled through transifex:
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] you can get translations by running gulp transifex-download
Aug 21 2015 20:55
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Do you see you language on
[b3free] yes.. brazilian
[b3free] it's on 57%
[b3free] i can help translating..
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Great! :-
[b3free] but how to install the translation?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] could you go to your platform-client directory and check server/www/locales/?
[b3free] there is no locale dir
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] ok you can get translations by running gulp transifex-download
Aug 21 2015 21:02
[b3free] Error: Missing transifex username and password
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Of course, sorry! :-)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] you can sign up as a translator and get a username and password.
[b3free] yes.. i did
[b3free] and than i put where on code?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] go to
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] the gulp task will try to read your settings in ~/.transifexrc
[b3free] root user?
Aug 21 2015 21:07
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] no doesn't have to be the root user
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] since it's the home directory of whoever is running the gulp task
[b3free] well.. i'did someway
[b3free] but other errors..
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] what are you seeing?
[b3free] well Jason.. i think that for today it's enough! :)
[b3free] thank you!
[b3free] i'll send you more feedbak
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] cool, thanks! :-)
