To get a Sakai 3 development instance up and running on your computer quickly follow these steps:
Then you can set up an instance with the following Terminal commands on a Unix/Mac:
Create a "sakai3" folder in your home folder:
Check out the latest Nakamura code. This will create an "open-experiments" folder
git clone email@example.com:sakaiproject/nakamura.git
Now build the kernel:
mvn clean install
Start the kernel:
Open a browser and type "http://localhost:8080/dev" into the address bar
Done. Now you have the latest kernel with the latest stable UX code (from Maven repo) running on your local machine.
If you would like to do UI/UX development you will need to additionally to the following:
1 Switch to the previously created "sakai3" folder in your home folder
Check out the UX code from Github, this will create a "3akai-ux" folder:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:sakaiproject/3akai-ux.git
Go to the kernel's Felix console by typing the following address into the browser's address bar (preferably with an alternative browser from the one you are using from development): "http://localhost:8080/system/console"
Log in using "admin" for username and password
Select the "Configuration" tab on the top part of the console
Open up the "Apache Sling Filesystem Resource Provider" module`s window (towards bottom of page)
Enter "/dev" in Provider Root field, enter the path to the "dev" folder in you checked out UX code to "Filesystem Root" field , and click "Save"
Open up the "Apache Sling Filesystem Resource Provider" again
Enter "/devwidgets" in Provider Root field, enter the path to the "devwidgets" folder in you checked out UX code to "Filesystem Root" field , and click "Save"
Done. Now if you go to "http://localhost:8080/dev" the kernel should load the files from your local machine, from the paths you`ve specified earlier. You should be able to start modifying files and see changes in browser.
