The xCoLab is a generic version of the Climate CoLab, a platform to crowdsource solutions to climate change. The xCoLab is intended to be domain independent and appropriate for solving a wide range of complex social problems.
- Java 8
- MySQL 5.6 or higher
You can set up a copy of the xCoLab like this:
# Create database mysql -u root -p -e 'CREATE DATABASE xcolab CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;' # Create the file conf/application.properties with your database credentials # (use conf/sample-application.properties file as a guide) # Check prerequesites and set up configuration file ./INSTALL.sh # Compile the sources, defining database schema ./mvnw compile # Populate database cat sql/starter/xcolab-data.sql | mysql -u root -p xcolab # Run the xCoLab: ./RUN.sh
The components may take a few minutes to start (you can use the
tailAll.sh script in
scripts/run to tail the log). After that, the xCoLab will be available at http://localhost:18082.
For a more comprehensive development setup guide, please check out our setup wiki page.
The xCoLab is built with Spring Boot. You can read more about our architecture here.
