DataHub is an experimental hosted platform (GitHub-like) for organizing, managing, sharing, collaborating, and making sense of data. It provides an efficient platform and easy to use tools/interfaces for:
- Publishing of your own data (hosting, sharing, collaboration)
- Using other’s data (querying, linking)
- Making sense of data (analysis, visualization)
Vagrant is the recommend method for developing with DataHub. It provides a VM matching the DataHub production server, regardless of your host system.
Install VirtualBox https://www.virtualbox.org/.
Install Vagrant https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html.
$ git clone https://github.com/datahuborg/datahub.git
Add this line to your hosts file (/etc/hosts on most systems):
From your clone, start the VM:
$ vagrant up
This last step might take several minutes depending on your connection and computer.
vagrant up finishes, you can find your environment running at http://datahub-local.mit.edu.
Vagrant keeps your working copy and the VM in sync, so edits you make to DataHub's code will be reflected on datahub-local.mit.edu. Changes to static files like CSS, JS, and documentation must be collected before the server will notice them. For more information, see the docs at https://datahub.csail.mit.edu/static/docs/html/index.html.
