First run the following command

git pull origin main

If you get an error that includes the following text:

Please stash or commit your changes

Do the following:

  1. If you have translated the CAD, make sure to copy the content of the language.json file and keep it save.
  2. Run git stash
  3. Run git pull origin main
  4. Open the src folder, then open the language.json file
  5. Paste the contents from the old language.json file into the new language.json
  6. Done!

If you haven't already, create a new file in the src folder and call it config.ts

Paste the following content inside and change where needed.

/* eslint-disable prettier/prettier */
// @ts-nocheck

// You can find more information about what everything is here:
// https://github.com/Dev-CasperTheGhost/snaily-cadv3/wiki/Config-file
const config = {
  port: Number(process.env.PORT) || 3030,
  host: process.env.DB_HOST || "localhost",
  user: process.env.DB_USER || "root",
  password: process.env.DB_PASSWORD || "admin",
  databaseName: process.env.DB_NAME || "snaily-cad",
  jwtSecret: process.env.JWT_SECRET || "bongo super cat",
  env: process.env.PROFILE || "production",

export default config;

once done, save the file.

Now we'll install the dependencies.

npm install

to start the CAD simply run the following command:

npm start

After a few seconds it should log
