CodeCombat is a multiplayer programming game for learning how to code. It’s a platform for students to learn computer science while playing through a real game.

It’s both a startup and a community project, completely open source under the MIT and Creative Commons licenses. Furthermore, it’s the largest open source CoffeeScript project by lines of code, and since it’s a game, it’s really fun to hack on.

To install CodeCombat, we need to first setup our database. The database used will be MongoDB

Install MongoDB

  • Import public key, create source list file and install database
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv EA312927  echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu "$(lsb_release -sc)"/mongodb-org/3.2 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.2.list  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org
  • Create the service file for mongodb
cd /lib/systemd/system/  vim mongod.service
  • Paste below into the file
[Unit]  Description=High-performance, schema-free document-oriented database  After=network.target  Documentation=https://docs.mongodb.org/manual    [Service]  User=mongodb  Group=mongodb  ExecStart=/usr/bin/mongod --quiet --config /etc/mongod.conf    [Install]  WantedBy=multi-user.target
  • Reload systemd service with following command
systemctl daemon-reload
  • Start mongodb service and add as a service on startup
systemctl start mongod  systemctl enable mongod

Install and run CodeCombat Multiplayer Game on Ubuntu 16.04

  • Install some needed packages
sudo apt-get install build-essential python2.7 git curl npm nodejs-legacy

npm config set python `which python2.7`
  • Next let’s setup Git
git config --global user.name "YOUR_NAME"  git config --global user.email "YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS"
  • Next we start cloning the game from the repository
git clone https://github.com/codecombat/codecombat.git  cd codecombat  git remote add -f upstream https://github.com/codecombat/codecombat.git
  • Install Dependencies
npm install
  • Let’s import the latest development database and overwrite the current development database
(cd $(mktemp -d /tmp/coco.XXXXXXXX) && curl http://analytics.codecombat.com:8080/dump.tar.gz | tar xzf - && mongorestore --drop --host 127.0.0.1)
  • Run following command to startup brunch and nodemon
