What is Global Forest Watch?
Global Forest Watch (GFW) is a dynamic online forest monitoring and alert system that empowers people everywhere to better manage forests.
This repository contains the GFW web app.
The GFW web app rides on Ruby on Rails.
OS X Yosemite (10.10) Setup
Next install Homebrew, the OS X package manager:
$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
We recommend managing your Ruby installation through rbenv. It's just an easy way to run multiple Ruby versions for different applications:
$ brew update $ brew upgrade rbenv ruby-build $ brew install imagemagick
Next clone the gfw repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/Vizzuality/gfw.git
Using rbenv, install and set Ruby 2.1.5 in the main app directory:
$ cd gfw $ rbenv install 2.1.5 $ rbenv local 2.1.5
Now let's install Ruby on Rails:
$ sudo gem install rails
Aaaaand now use Bundler, a rubygem manager, to install all the gem depenencies for the app:
$ bundle install
Installing front end dependencies:
$ npm install -g grunt-cli bower phantomjs $ npm install -d $ bower install
Almost there! Final steps are to update your

Last step. For real. Start the app server and access it at http://0.0.0.0:5000:
$ foreman start
Map layers, somewhat unsurprisingly, are an important part of GFW. As
such, the config and code supporting them can be a bit complex. Check
out the layer documentation for more information. If the
component you're working on isn't in there, please write some
documentation when you're done!
