Openrouteservice is a online route planning application that is based on open source software, open data and open standards.
The openrouteservice client requires nodejs and a valid Api-Key to access the openrouteservice API. Also make sure that git is installed.
If you encounter any permission issues during the installation:
- on Linux: try running npm-commands with
sudo npm install
- on Windows(GitBash recommended): try running npm-commands with the
npm install --no-optional
Step by Step instructions
- Download openrouteservice repository:
# clone repository from github git clone https://github.com/GIScience/openrouteservice-app.git # switch to repository folder cd openrouteservice-app
- Install dependencies:
# install all modules listed as dependencies in package.json npm install # install dependencies listed in bower.json node_modules/bower/bin/bower install
- Install required modules for slider layout:
(This step is for layout purposes only. If you want to skip it remove
grunt:sliderMakeCss from the task queue in the renamed
Gruntfile.js [see next step])
# Switch to bower_components/angular folder: cd bower_components/angularjs-slider # install all modules listed as dependencies in package.json npm install # switch back to openrouteservice-app folder: cd ../..
- Initiate default files:
# Copy `Gruntfile.default.js` to `Gruntfile.js` cp Gruntfile.default.js Gruntfile.js # Copy `weathercheck.default.txt` to `weathercheck.txt`. cp app/weathercheck.default.txt app/weathercheck.txt
- Replace weathercheck.txt content with your Api-Key:
# Finally open `app/weathercheck.txt` in your favorite text editor and replace the content with your Token. # e.g.: vim app/weathercheck.txt
