Mass Testing Platform: A Legacy of Innovation

Originally developed by Rocket Mortgage, MassTestingPlatform was created with a specific focus on supporting COVID-19 vaccination testing efforts in Detroit during the height of the pandemic. The platform was designed to facilitate large-scale testing operations and played a crucial role in contributing to the efficient management of testing initiatives during a critical time. The initial development and subsequent open-sourcing were driven by the urgent need to address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the platform remains available for use, there are no plans for ongoing updates or maintenance.

Healthcare Appointment & Scheduling Web Application. Provides an easy way to schedule patients, providers, or businesses for mass drive through pandemic testing. Powered by Rocket Mortgage Technology and Easy!Appointments. Runbooks for the end to end process which includes scheduling, test site logistics, and data orchestration, all can be found at

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See deployment for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.


Software that is needed to get started:

  • Docker
  • Git


Initial Steps

  1. Clone the repository to your local machine
    • git clone
  2. Enter the newly created directory
    • cd MassTestingPlatform
  3. Setup environment file
    • cp .sample.env .env
    • Edit .env with appropriate values
  4. Build the docker containers (may take some time to initialize)
    • docker-compose build --build-arg CERT_URL=
  5. Stand up the docker container
    • docker-compose up
  6. Open up a new terminal and get into the container
    • docker exec -it mtp_app bash
  7. Build application
    1. Easy All-in-One Build Script
      • bin/
    2. Manual steps (if you don't want to use
      1. Run composer to install PHP packages
        • composer install
      2. Run npm to install Node packages
        • nvm install 8.6.0
        • nvm use 8.6.0
        • npm install
      3. Run gulp to build css
        • npm rebuild node-sass
        • gulp sass
      4. Run initial db migration
        • php src/index.php migrate update
  8. Restart Docker Container (Needed to remount php and node modules)
    1. Ctrl+C in your docker-compose terminal to kill instance
    2. Re-run docker-compose up in your docker-compose terminal
    3. Re-run docker exec -it mtp_app bash in your other terminal
  9. Visit http://localhost/installation/index in your browser!
    • Follow the on screen installation guide

Reoccurring Steps (After initial install)

Stand up the docker container

  • docker-compose up

Open up a new terminal and get into the container

  • docker exec -it mtp_app bash

Build application with All-in-One Build Script

  • bin/

Develop and Engineer!

Finish and kill your instance

  • Ctrl+C in your docker-compose terminal to kill instance

MySQL Admin App (Adminer)

This environment comes with Adminer, a web app to manage the local MySQL database.

After starting the docker containers, visit the following URL with password: veryhardpassword



If you are having issues with your environment consider the following:

  1. Have you fetched and pulled down the latest master branch?
  2. Have you built the app lately? Run ./bin/ in the container.
  3. You can run docker-compose build --no-cache --build-arg CERT_URL= to force rebuild the containers.
  4. As a last resort, you can completely delete and start over using docker rm -v mtp_database. Use only if all options have been tried because this deletes the existing database.

End to End (E2E) Testing


Docker (Fork Notes)

To start over and delete the existing database (fresh install), run:

docker rm -v mtp_database

To start Easy!Appointments using Docker in development configuration, with source files mounted into container, run:

docker-compose up

Production deployment can be made by changing required values in .env file (DB_PASSWORD, APP_URL, APP_PORT) and running:

docker-compose -f up -d

Database data will be stored in named volume easyappointments_easy-appointments-data, and app storage (logs, cache, uploads) in easyappointments_easy-appointments-storage. To find where exactly they are stored, you can run:

docker volume inspect easyappointments_easy-appointments-storage

Production containers will automatically be restarted in case of crash / server reboot. For more info, take a look into file.


Updating your Verison

In order to seamlessly upgrade your instance, run the following

# Run the following in the docker container
# Perform migration command
php src/index.php migrate update

# You will see a successful message
# {"status":"success","message":"Version is now 13"}

In order to migrate to particular version, run the following

# Run the following in the docker container
php src/index.php migrate updateTo {version_number}

Checking your Version

In order to check the current version of your instance

Use this URL: http://localhost/migrate

# Use the CLI
