openPDS - Personal Data Store / Server
The personal data store component of openPDS handles storage of raw personal data, provides endpoints for writing such data via connectors, a computation engine to perform analysis on the raw data, as well as storage and REST endpoints for results of such analysis (answers to questions, in openPDS lingo).
Please note: openPDS requires a separate registry server for account management and to act as an OAuth 2.0 provider. This can be found at https://github.com/HumanDynamics/openPDS-RegistryServer. If you run your own registry server, the domain for your registry server must be provided to the openPDS setup script.
Contributors: The dev branch is for ongoing development. Please submit pull requests to this brach.
Getting started with openPDS
(You must have python pip, virtualenv, and mongodb server installed on your machine)
# install python and database dependencies apt-get install python pip apt-get install python-virtualenv apt-get install postgresql postgresql-contrib apt-get install mongodb mongodb-server apt-get install python-dev libpq-dev service mongodb start
python virtual environment for openPDSCreating a
You must clone the repo into the virtualenv directory for
setup.py to work:
# create the virtual environment virtualenv pdsEnv cd pdsEnv source bin/activate # get the latest openPDS code git clone https://github.com/HumanDynamics/openPDS.git cd openPDS # install openPDS and its requirements pip install -r requirements.txt # set up and run your local openPDS python start.py python manage.py syncdb python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8002 (for access to local VM)
The above steps will start openPDS with default configuration settings on port
8002 of the loopback interface (local access only) on your machine. The openPDS setup script generates a wsgi file that can be used to run openPDS with other web server software, such as Apache.
