iReflect Server-Side Application

CircleCI Codacy Badge

Installation & Setup

Platform & tools

Note: If you have installed Go to a custom location, make sure the $GOROOT variable is set properly. Refer Installing to a custom location.

Get the Code

Make sure to use go get command instead of git clone to download the repository since go get directly adds the repository according to the $GOPATH environment variable, which is required since go can only access the installed go binaries once the required environment variables are set.

go get -d
cd ~/go/src/
About Makefile

The make tool and the Makefile file, present at the project root folder, can be used for wrapping Go commands with specific build targets that simplify usage on the command line. Some of the commands wrapped in the Makefile are used in the setup instructions given below, to know more about the wrapped commands refer to the Makefile.

Install vendor dependencies
  1. This command (a wrapper for the dep ensure command) places all the dependencies in the vendor folder based on the Gopkg.toml file. If a dependency is in the Gopkg.lock file, use the version specified there otherwise use the most recent version.

    make vendor
  2. To add new dependencies, run the command given below:

    dep ensure -add

Database Configuration

iReflect only supports Postgresql as of now. So below mention configurations are postgresql specific.

Create a database as below to use the default configuration (or override the default values),


You can override the default DB connection information by setting an ENV variable

export DB_DSN="host=localhost user=ireflect password=1Reflect dbname=ireflect_dev sslmode=disable"
export DB_DRIVER="postgres"

Migrations Management

For help, run make migrate in the command line.

Applying migrations

All the migrations are present under the db/migrations folder (which can be configured using the MigrationsDir config under config/config.go)


make migrate up
make migrate down


Adding new migrations


make migrate create <migration_name> go
make migrate create <migration_name> sql

Time Tracker configuration (For Google Sheets)

Visit and follow the given steps to configure Google Sheets as a Time Tracker (video instructions at

Step 1: Select the following two scopes from "Select & authorize APIs" section.

You can also add the scopes manually in the text box provided there, by writing the scopes separated by comma.

Step 2: Generate a Refresh token using the Google timesheet App's client_id, client_secret.

Step 3: Use the Refresh token to create a JSON credentials file at config/timetracker_credentials.json using the following format, use the same client_id and client_secret here, used in the previous step.

    "refresh_token": "xxxxxxxxx"

Login Configuration (For Google OAuth)

Visit and follow the given steps to configure Google OAuth as the login method:

Step 1: Enable APIs and Services

Step 2: Create a new project, if not already created, and select that project.

Step 3: To create a new credential, you must first set a product name on the consent screen under the Credentials section (visible once you have selected a project). Go to the "OAuth consent screen" section and provide a product name which will be shown to the users whenever requesting access.

Step 4: Generate a pair of client_id and client_secret for the iReflect's Authentication app, using "Create Credentials".

Note: Select OAuth client ID as the credentials type and then select Web Application as the application type and provide origin and redirect url of the hosted webapp.

Use the generated client_id and client_secret to create a JSON credentials file at config/application_default_credentials.json using following format

  "type": "authorized_user",
  "web": {
    "client_id": "",
    "client_secret": "xxxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "redirect_uris": [

Sentry Logging (Optional)

Specify an environment variable SENTRY_DSN to enable sentry logging for errors

SENTRY_DSN = https://<key>:<secret><project>

Running the Application

Once everything is configured properly, run the below command to start the API server.

make run

Accessing the Admin interface

Admin Interface is accessible at http://localhost:3000/admin/.

Before that, create an admin user using the postgresql shell.

  • Initiate an interactive postgresql session by running the command:

    psql -U <username> <database_name>
  • Once connected to the database, enter the below query terminated with a semicolon ;.

    Note: The given query is based on the current user model definition and assuming Google Sheets as the only available time tracker.

    <database_name>=# INSERT INTO USERS (email, first_name, last_name, time_provider_config, is_admin) values ('<email_id>', '<first_name>', '<last_name>', '[{"data": {"email": "<email_id>"}, "type": "gsheet"}]', true);

Build the application

To generate a binary distribution file for the application, run the following command.

make all
