Development

This installs a site that will run in development mode using sqlite3. You should use this installation for testing letterpad and for developing themes.

Install from github

git clone https://github.com/letterpad/letterpad.git
cd letterpad

Create Environment

Make a copy of sample.env and name it .env. This file has some configurations which you don't necessarily have to change for the development environment unless you want to play around.

Install dependencies & run

yarn install
yarn dev

Letterpad depends on yarn workspaces, so you cannot use npm to install. Use yarn.

Run

Now visit http://localhost:4040 and checkout your installation
