Implementation

GED VIZ is a Ruby on Rails application using a MySQL database. The client side part is written in JavaScript/CoffeeScript using Backbone.js, Chaplin.js and Raphael.js.

Dependencies

  • Ruby 1.9.3 (MRI) with RubyGems
  • MySQL 5.1 or newer
  • PhantomJS (for generating static images for slide previews, exporting and older browsers)

Installation

  • gem install bundler
  • bundle install
  • Adjust config/database.yml to your database configuration. You might use config/database.yml.sample as a template.
  • rake db:create db:migrate db:seed importer:import This creates the database and imports the data. This may take several minutes.
  • Start the local development server: rails server

If you deploy the software on an Internet or Intranet server, please replace the term “GED VIZ” and trademarked logos which aren’t covered by the MIT license. See LICENSE.md for further instructions.
