Canvas Planner is the UI component for the List View Dashboard feature in Canvas.



yarn add canvas-planner
import Planner from 'canvas-planner';


Canvas Planner is developed using modern JavaScript and supports modern browsers. If you are using it in an environment such as IE 11 where some core browser features are unavailable, then you should make sure to polyfill appropriately. This package does not ship any polyfills to maintain a smaller footprint.


Getting Started

yarn start

Go to your browser to http://localhost:3005 to see the app. This will also start a json-server instance at http://localhost:3004 which api requests will be proxied from webpack-dev-server to eliminating the need to have an instance of Canvas running to do development.

Running without a delay

By default, all requests to the json-server have a 1.5 second delay introduced to help us develop for proper loading states. If you want to run without the delay you'll need to instead run:

yarn run start:json-server:no-delay

And then in a separate terminal tab/session/window/etc.

yarn run start:webpack-dev


This project uses eslint-config-react-app for linting JS files. Linting is enforced at the build level. ESLint errors will cause the build to fail. You can run the linter by running yarn run lint


We use Jest for testing the codebase. You can run it by running yarn test for a single run or yarn test:watch to start up a watcher process for it. If you are having trouble with the watch process you may need to set up watchman. It should be as simple as brew install watchman on a Mac, no configuration is required. For more details about these issues see the discussion on the issue, watch mode stopped working on macOS Sierra. We require test coverage percentages to be maintained. Run the test coverage by running yarn run test:coverage

Testing a local Canvas Planner version

If you want to test a version of the planner locally without publishing it you can do so by using yarn link.

The way it is done is as follows:

cd canvas-planner
yarn run build # Build the proper transpiled versions of the files 
yarn link
cd ./canvas-lms
yarn link canvas-planner

Once you've done those things, run the proper build steps for your Canvas installation and you'll see your local copy of canvas-planner working inside Canvas.


To deploy a new version of canvas-planner to npm first update the version field in the package.json. You will then commit that version to canvas-planner and in your commit message paste the output of the command below. git log v(enter previous version here)...origin/master --pretty=format:"[%h] (%an) %s" Next run ./scripts/release if you have already updated the planner version in your package.json you can press enter otherwise follow the instructions on screen.

After published go to your canvas-lms directory and open the package.json. Update the canvas-planner dependency to the one you just released. After that you will need to remove your node_modules and reinstall using yarn. From there you should commit the yarn.lock and the diff in the package.json.
