Search and filter nexus data via elastic search

This is a webapp and server that queries an elastic search index of Nexus to filter and search data in a way more useful to some users than using the Knowledge Graph.


The server uses a dotenv file for configuration.

Copy envs\dev.env.example and rename to envs\dev.env. Change the ENV vars as needed. They will be injected to the app at launch, as long as NODE_ENV=development . Importantly, make sure the Elastic Search variables are configured, or the server will just deliver errors.

The client-side index.html document will be transpiled with the ENV vars in the dotenv file as well. Make sure the BASE_URI is configured, which will be used to create the log-in and api urls. You can see how these urls are built by following the code under src/store/reducers/config.js.

to launch the client and server in tandem: npm run dev


You can build the docker files from the project.json npm scripts. npm run build-docker:server npm run build-docker:client

make sure to edit the docker files under the docker folder to configure the previously-mentioned ENV vars, so that the service and client will speak to each other.
