Sharetribe Flex Template for Web: time-based process


Note If you are using day-based booking process (i.e. daily or nightly bookings), you should choose the original Flex Template for Web instead.

This is a template web application for a Sharetribe Flex marketplace using time-based booking process. This repository is a fork from the existing FTW repository (which is using nightly booking process). So, if you have started working with the original FTW repository and you want to change to FTW-hourly, you can change the 'upstream' remote repository. You can read more about time-based process from the related Flex Docs article

Quick start

Note: this template assumes that you are using time-based transaction process with alias preauth-unit-time-booking/release-1, if you are using something else, you should change the alias name from config.js and util/transaction.js

If you just want to get the app running quickly to test it out, first install Node.js and Yarn, and follow along:

git clone             # clone this repository
cd ftw-hourly/                                                 # change to the cloned directory
yarn install                                                   # install dependencies
yarn run config                                                # add the mandatory env vars to your local config
yarn run dev                                                   # start the dev server, this will open a browser in localhost:3000

You can also follow along the Getting started with FTW tutorial and read the background article about Time-based template from the Flex Docs website.

For more information of the configuration, see the FTW Environment configuration variables reference in Flex Docs.

Note: If you want to build your own Flex marketplace on top of the template, you should fork the repository instead of cloning it. See the How to Customize FTW guide in Flex Docs.

Getting started with your own customization

If you want to build your own Flex marketplace by customizing the template application, see the How to Customize FTW guide in Flex Docs.

Deploying to Heroku

Note: Remember to fork the repository before deploying the application. Connecting your own Github repository to Heroku will make manual deploys easier.

See the How to deploy FTW to production guide in Flex Docs for more information.
