Monorail is the Issue Tracker used by the Chromium project and other related projects. It is hosted at bugs.chromium.org.
If you wish to file a bug against Monorail itself, please do so in our self-hosting tracker. We also discuss development of Monorail at
In order to run all of the Monorail unit tests, run
make test in this directory. If you wish to run just a subset of the tests, you can invoke the test runner directly and give it a subdirectory:
To run the app locally, you need to have a local MySQL database. Install MySQL according to the canonical instructions for your platform. Then create a new database an import our schema:
mysql> create database monorail; mysql> use monorail; mysql> source /path/to/infra/appengine/monorail/schema/framework.sql; mysql> source /path/to/infra/appengine/monorail/schema/project.sql; mysql> source /path/to/infra/appengine/monorail/schema/tracker.sql; mysql> exit;
Then you can run the development server locally with just
Makefile files contained in this directory point at the official instances of Monorail maintained by the Chromium Infrastructure Team. If you wish (and have sufficient permissions) to deploy to one of those, simply run
make deploy_staging or
make deploy_prod. If you wish to set up your own instance, edit the first line of the
app.yaml and use gae.py directly, or edit the
Makefile to add an entry for your AppEngine app ID. It is likely that you'll also want to edit many of the values in
settings.py, which specify debug email addresses, instance counts, and default Google Storage buckets.
