Mobi is a collaborative knowledge graph platform for teams and communities to develop and publish semantic data and models.
Mobi is built on open semantic web technologies and standards like RDF, OWL, and SPARQL. It provides a collaborative environment for creating, publishing, and consuming OWL ontologies and SKOS vocabularies. See https://mobi.inovexcorp.com/ for more information.
To build the Mobi source code, you must have the following software and tools installed.
Clone the Mobi project from git and navigate to that directory on your machine. Run the following command to build the source:
mvn clean install
The build creates the Mobi distribution as both a
.tar.gz file and a
.zip file in the
mobi-distribution/target directory. Extract one of the files and navigate into that directory.
Inside the extracted distribution directory, start up the Mobi Karaf instance. The distribution is configured to automatically deploy the required bundles and services to the runtime using Karaf features. To start the runtime, simply open the command line interface and run the start script.
or for Windows:
The Mobi web application should now be accessible at
To stop the server, use the respective stop scripts.
To prepare Mobi for a release (non-snapshot) build, run the build using the
release-build profile, i.e:
mvn clean install -P release-build
release-build profile will minify the web resources and prepare karaf scripts to use release versions.
Running Integration Tests
Integration tests are controlled by the
skipITs system property and are disabled by default. To run integration tests as part of the build, set the property to false:
mvn clean install -DskipITs=false
Running Function Tests
Functional tests run tests against a browser and are controlled by the
skipFunctional system property and are disabled by default. To run integration tests as part of the build, set the property to false:
mvn clean install -DskipFunctional=false
Mobi is also available as a Docker image. Visit https://hub.docker.com/r/inovexis/mobi/ to find available images. Images can also be built locally. See the
mobi-distribution module for more information.
