Getting started

If you have the Java 1.6.0 SDK (or above) you can build and run a demo server with the following commands:

 git clone git://github.com/hudmol/archivesspace.git

 cd archivesspace

 launcher/build/run dist

 java -jar launcher/archivesspace.jar

This will start the ArchivesSpace application running on:

http://localhost:8080/

and the backend web service running on:

http://localhost:8089/

If you'd like to use different ports, you can run:

java -jar launcher/archivesspace.jar [frontend port] [backend port]

To create a test account and log in, you'll currently need to use curl:

username=$USER
curl -v -F password=testuser "http://localhost:8089/auth/local/user/$username"
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
