Loris is an implementation of the IIIF Image API 2.0.
- If you're looking for IIIF 1.1 support, please use the last release in the 1.x series.
- If you're looking for IIIF 1.0 support, this release is the closest Loris ever was, but there are known flaws, deployment is tough, and it is certainly not supported at this point.
Loris is only supported on Python 2.7.x. If you need to use Python 2.6, Loris v2.1.0 is the last version to support it.
These instructions are known to work on Ubuntu 12.04 or greater and Python 2.7.x (but not 3.x). See below for some help with RedHat/CentOS and Debian.
Do Not! Run
setup.py until you've read the following:
- Install Dependencies
- Configuration Options
- Cache Maintenance
- Resolver Implementation
- Deploy with Apache
- Deploy with Docker
- (Optional) Developer Notes
You're best off working through these steps in order.
RedHat, Debian and Troubleshooting
@mmcclimon has provided some excellent instructions for deploying Loris on RedHat 6 or the equivalent CentOS.
As always, clarifications, notes (issues, pull requests) regarding experiences on different platforms are most welcome.
