The annotation tool is a web-based software, and for this reason it simply requires a LAMP/MAMP/WAMP software bundle, depending on the operating system. In other terms, it requires: Apache HTTP Server, MySQL and PHP.
- Clone the repository using
git clone https://github.com/PHuSeLab/DANTE.git.
- Import in a MySQL database the file
annotationdb.sql, which is responsible of the creation of all the needed tables.
- Edit the file
config.phpaccording to the environment. (For more details, see section configuration.
- Open the browser to the page
http://localhost/login.phpor wherever you installed DANTE.
- Login with default credentials
- Follow the configuration instructions and change the default password!
The configuration file contained in
config.php is very simple and permits to configure some basics parameters, such as:
db_hostcorrespond to the hostname of the database (default: localhost).
db_namecorrespond the database name to use and is the one where was imported the annotationdb.sql file (default: annotationdb).
anno_rateis the recording frequency of the annotation. DANTE will record a value every 1/anno_rate seconds (default: '25').
save_modeDANTE is able to save the annotations to the database 'db' or to a text file 'file' (default: 'db').
