System Requirements

  • JDK 7
  • Postgresql 9.2+
  • Git
  • Firefox
  • Gradle 2.3
    • For Linux users
      • Download the source binary directly from the gradle website.
      • Copy the downloaded folder to /usr/bin
      • Add the path to gradle bin folder to your /etc/profile file export PATH="$PATH:/usr/bin/gradle-2.3/bin"
    • For Mac users
      • Install HomeBrew
      • Run brew install gradle
  • Node.js
    • For Linux users
      • Install Node.js as described here based on your Linux flavour.
    • For Mac users
      • Install Node.js directly or using homebrew using brew install nodejs

      • Those who install Node.js using Homebrew should export the following (or include in $HOME/.bash_profile or $HOME/.profile or $HOME/.bashrc or $HOME/.zshrc, depending on your shell.

        export NODE_PATH="/usr/local/bin/node"
        export PATH="/usr/local/share/npm/bin:$PATH"
  • NPM dependencies (used for linting JS, LESS files, minifying JS files & running jasmine specs etc.)
    • Install Grunt command-line runner by running (after installing Node.js) > npm install -g grunt-cli
    • Install karma test runner with karma coverage by running > npm install -g karma karma-coverage
    • Install karma command line with: > npm install -g karma-cli
    • You may need to install further karma dependencies for FireFox: > npm install -g karma-firefox-install
    • And for jasmine: > npm install -g karma-jasmine
    • Grunt tasks available can be found in modules/openlmis-web/Gruntfile.js

Source code

  1. Get the source code using git clone https://github.com/openlmis/open-lmis.git.

  2. By default you'll checkout the master branch. This is the latest stable code. For the latest development code checkout the dev branch.

  3. Set up dependencies on submodules & Grunt using:

    > cd open-lmis
    > git submodule init
    > git submodule update
    > cd modules/openlmis-web
    > npm install


If you're intending to contribute to the OpenLMIS project, please read through CONTRIBUTING.md.
note that new features should be placed in modules and should be managed using git-repo.

IntelliJ IDEA Setup

  1. Run gradle idea to create the IntelliJ project files (may take some time downloading dependencies).
  2. Open the open-lmis.ipr file (may take some time indexing files, first time only).
  3. Install Lombok plugin according to the IntelliJ version.
  4. To run individual tests in IntelliJ, configure your IntelliJ preferences to enable "annotation processing"

Jasmine Tests

  1. To run jasmine tests headlessly: gradle karmaRun

Feature Toggle (for 2.0)

A number of country-specific features (eLMIS, VIMS, Moz) are integrated into the project. These are turned off by default. To turn them on, edit the gradle.properties file by setting toggleOnCustom = true.

See https://openlmis.atlassian.net/wiki/display/OP/2.0+Feature+Toggle+Mechanism for more details.

To add features to the toggling mechanism, see Feature Toggle.md in the docs folder.

Running App on embedded Jetty server

  1. Clone the project repository using git.
  2. Setup postgres user with password as configured in gradle.properties file.
  3. Add psql command to your PATH
  4. You can use gradle clean setupdb seed build testseed run to start the app.
  5. You can use gradle clean setupdb seed build to just run all of the tests.
  6. There are bunch of gradle tasks that you can see by running gradle tasks:
  • build is to build the app.
  • setupdb is to recreate the database and schema.
  • seed is to seed in the reference data.
  • testseed puts in some test data which can be used to browse through basic functionality in the system.
  • run is to start the embedded jetty server.
  1. If you wish to run the app using supplied demo data, you can do so by running the following two commands in succession:
  • gradle clean setupdb seed build to build the WAR.
  • gradle setupdb baseseed demoseed run to initialize the database and run the server.

Once the system is running, you can access the home page at http://localhost:9091/. You can log into the default instance with: user: Admin123, pass: Admin123 (case sensitive)

Code analysis

Analysis of Java and Javascript sources can be reported on and visualized using a SonarQube server and the included sonarRunner task.

  1. Install and run the SonarQube server.
  2. Configure the Sonar properties in gradle.properties to point to your Sonar server and database.
  3. Build the project and run the analysis:
  • Basic analysis: gradle build sonarRunner
  • With coverage reports install the Sonar Cobertura plugin and run cobertura report before sonar analysis. e.g. gradle build cobertura sonarRunner

Server setup

See SonarQube.org for official documentation. For more information on how the OpenLMIS project configures SonarQube see the OpenLMIS sonar-configuration repository.


  1. If a few integration tests fail, like this: org.openlmis.core.repository.mapper.FacilityMapperIT > shouldUpdateFacilityWithSuppliedModifiedTime FAILED java.lang.AssertionError at FacilityMapperIT.java:292 This can be caused by the timezone in postgresql.conf being different than your operating system timezone. To fix, stop the postgresql server, and edit the following line: timezone = 'US/Pacific' to match your current operating system timezone, then restart the postgresql server.
