iQvoc is a vocabulary management tool that combines easy-to-use human interfaces with Semantic Web interoperability.
iQvoc supports vocabularies that are common to many knowledge organization systems, such as:
- Classification schemes
- Subject heading systems
iQvoc provides comprehensive functionality for all aspects of managing such vocabularies:
- import of existing vocabularies from a SKOS representation
- multilingual display and navigation in any Web browser
- editorial features for registered users
- publishing the vocabulary in the Semantic Web
iQvoc is built with state-of-the-art technology and can be easily customized according to user's needs.
You can easily setup your iQvoc instance in under 5 minutes, we wanted to make this process really easy. In order to deploy to heroku you need to have an account and heroku toolbelt installed.
$ bundle install $ heroku create $ bundle exec rake heroku:config $ git push heroku master $ heroku run rake db:migrate $ heroku run rake db:seed $ heroku restart
heroku open opens your app in the browser.
Remember to visit the Users section and change the default passwords!
We recommend running iQvoc as a Rails engine. Running the cloned source code is possible but any modifications would require a fork.
- Configure your database via
config/database.template.yml. Don't forget to rename it to
bundle exec rake db:createto create the database
- Create the necessary tables by running
- Load some base data by running
bundle exec rake setup:generate_secret_token
- Boot up the app using
bundle exec rails s(or
passenger startif you use passenger)
- Log in with "admin@iqvoc" / "admin" or "demo@iqvoc" / "cooluri" (cf. step #5)
- Visit the Users section and change the default passwords
Note that some features like "Import" exposed in the Web UI store their workload as jobs. You can either issue a job worker that runs continuously and watches for new jobs via
$ rake jobs:work
or process jobs in a one-off way (in development or via cron):
$ rake jobs:workoff
iQvoc is fully compatible with Ruby 1.9, 2.0, 2.1 and JRuby 1.7.
There are many hooks providing support for your own classes and configuration. The core app
also works as a Rails Engine. The config residing in
lib/iqvoc.rb provides a basic
overview of the possibilities.
Documentation resources can be found in the wiki.
