Lagotto

Build Status Code Climate Code Climate Test Coverage DOI

Lagotto allows a user to track events around research articles and other scholarly outputs, including how often a work has been viewed, cited, saved, discussed and recommended. The application was started in March 2009 by the Open Access publisher Public Library of Science (PLOS). Visit the Lagotto website to learn more.

How to start developing now?

Lagotto uses Vagrant and Virtualbox for setting up the development environment. To start developing now on your local machine (Mac OS X, Linux or Windows):

  1. Install Vagrant: https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html
  2. Install Virtualbox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
  3. Clone this repository git clone git@github.com:lagotto/lagotto.git
  4. Cd into it
  5. Copy the file .env.example to .env and make any changes to the configuration as needed
  6. Run vagrant up

Once the setup is complete (it might take up to 15 minutes), you'll be able to open up a browser and navigate to http://10.2.2.4, and you should see this screen:
