DeepaMehta 3 Folder Canvas

This plugin establishes a special mode of file handling in DeepaMehta 3: a special type of topic map (a Folder Canvas) is bound to an OS folder and can synchronize its content (that is File topics) with it. The DeepaMehta 3 Folder Canvas plugin builds on services provided by the DeepaMehta 3 Files plugin.

DeepaMehta 3 is a platform for collaboration and knowledge management.

Installing

The DeepaMehta 3 Folder Canvas plugin is an optional installation. When you install it you must deactivate the DeepaMehta 3 File Manager plugin (which is part of the DeepaMehta 3 standard installation).

Perform the installation via the Apache Felix shell (the terminal window that opens while starting DeepaMehta):

  1. Deactivate the DeepaMehta 3 File Manager plugin:

     stop 38
    

    Note: here, 38 is supposed to be the bundle ID of the DeepaMehta 3 File Manager plugin. Use the lb command (list bundles) to get out the actual bundle ID on your DeepaMehta installation.

  2. Download and start the DeepaMehta 3 Folder Canvas plugin:

     start http://www.deepamehta.de/maven2/de/deepamehta/deepamehta3-foldercanvas/0.4.3/deepamehta3-foldercanvas-0.4.3.jar
    

    When using the lb command again you should now see the DeepaMehta 3 Folder Canvas plugin as Active and the DeepaMehta 3 File Manager plugin as Resolved.

  3. You're done. Open the DeepaMehta browser window (resp. press reload):
    http://localhost:8080/de.deepamehta.3-client/index.html

Note: the DeepaMehta 3 File Manager plugin and the DeepaMehta 3 Folder Canvas plugins must not be activated at the same time. The behavoir would be unexpected.
