Setting Up Metis

Joshua Strobl edited this page Aug 13, 2014 · 10 revisions

Setting up Metis is a simple and straightforward process and is categorized in three ways:

Javascript Library Only

Metis is really built to be an open source database and storage solution for modern applications and we recognize that these modern applications can and need to run on a variety of devices. Our client-side system allows you to use Metis on a wide range on devices, such as a smartphone app that leverages Cordova, a ChromeOS app that needs to leverage offline, online, and Chrome(OS) specific functionality, and of course in any modern browser; as well as use it without any need for the Metis backend.

PHP Only

Most modern applications utilize a powerful backend to sync data, whether it be complex datasets or simple settings. With Metis on the server (PHP), you can have a powerful backend in a lightweight, easily distributable, and easily maintainable package.


Sometimes that fancy mobile or ChromeOS application needs the power of a server behind it, and Metis offers that. You can easily tie in the Javascript library to the server backend with only two additional lines of code.


To get started, you can download the stable version of Metis, click here and extract it on to your system (no worries, it doesn't need to stay there).


To set up Metis for your web application, ChromeOS app, mobile HTML5 application, etc. go ahead and click here. If you are going to set up Metis to be used on both the client and backend, we recommend you do the Backend setup first!


To set up Metis on your server(s), go ahead and click here.
