This project is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license - see the file for details.

Getting Started

The Web Editor is available at for demo purposes.

You can also build the files yourself and deploy them to any web host:

  1. Install Node.js
  2. Clone or download this repository.
  3. Open a command line window and go to the directory which contains the cloned/downloaded web editor files.
  4. Configure the web editor by editing config.js, vue.config.js and theme.scss to suit your needs.
  5. Install the dependencies by executing npm install on the command line
  6. For...
    • Development: Run the development server by executing npm start.
    • Deployment: Build the project by executing npm run build. Afterwards upload the content of the dist folder to your server.

Query Parameters

You can use some query parameters to set initial state to the Editor.

  • server: Set a openEO back-end to connect to by default, e.g.
  • discover: If you want to skip authentication and just show the capabiltiies of the back-end, simply set to 1.
  • process: Loads a process from a URL and shows it in the Model Builder. You can also pass a single process name with an optional namespace to the parameter (format: process@namespace) to simply add a single process node for that process by default.
  • namespaces: Loads a additional process namespaces. Multiple namespaces can be separated by a comma (e.g. vector,sar).
  • edit-node: Opens the parameter editor for a single process node on start-up. Must have the process parameter being set, otherwise will be ignored. You can set two types of values:
    • 1: If only a single node is being added, opens this node without explicitly naming it.
    • Otherwise, the value must correspond to the node identifier without # at the beginning.
  • wizard: Opens a specific wizard on start-up. The value must correspond to the component name of the wizard. Wizard options can be set by provding them as query parameter prefixed with wizard~, e.g. &wizard~collection=SENTINEL2-L2A.
    • Usecase "Run UDP": For wizard=UDP you can provide a process in the query parameter wizard~process which has the same format as in process above and will open a wizard for this UDP.
  • preview-collection: Shows the preview of a Collection on the map upon start.
  • result: Loads a STAC Item or Collection in "App mode".
