WebACS


The WebACS is a platform-independent re-implementation of the AsTeRICS Configuration Suite using HTML5 and Javascript. For more information on AsTeRICS, please refer to [AsTeRICS on Github] (https://github.com/asterics/AsTeRICS) or the AsTeRICS website http://www.asterics.eu.

Clone

To clone the repo ensure to also clone its submodules by

git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/asterics/WebACS.git

Run

As the WebACS is based an Javascript totally, index.html can be opened as local file in Firefox (35.0.1 or higher).

It is recommended that the WebACS is hosted on a webserver and started via an http-URL, e.g.

http://localhost:8081/webapps/WebACS/index.html

In this case also Chrome and other browsers are supported.

WebACS query string options

When starting the WebACS certain parameters can be specified in the query string of the URL:

  • openFile: string containing the relative path to the model (must be the same webserver as the one which provides the WebACS) file that shall be opened directly on startup
  • autoConnect: boolean – if true: automatically connects to the ARE upon startup: default is false
  • autoDownloadModel: boolean – if true: automatically downloads the current model from the ARE; will only work if autoConnect is true and no openFile is specified; default is false
  • areBaseURI: string that specifies the URI for the ARE; if not specified, but the WebACS is hosted by an ARE-webservice, the hosting ARE will be used, else localhost will be assumed
  • helpUrlPath: Sets the URL to the online help which shall be used if no ARE connection is active. Example: helpUrlPath=http://localhost:8081/help/
