Quick Setup and Requirements

Kurogo is a PHP application. It is currently qualified for use with

  • Apache 2.x on unix systems (Windows system may also work, but has not been fully test. IIS is not supported)
    • mod_rewrite, and .htaccess support (AllowOverride)
  • PHP 5.2 or higher with the following modules
    • xml, dom, json, pdo (SQLite/MySQL), mbstring, LDAP, curl

To install, simply copy the files to your webserver, and point your site's document root to the included www folder. For more detailed setup information, please see the developer's guide.

Version 1.1

This version includes a number of fixes and improvements, including:

  • An updated Tablet UI for News and Video modules
  • Updated Smarty template engine
  • Support for Vimeo videos
  • Various improvements to calendar parsing
  • Improvements to the admin module
  • Various bug fixes
  • Many other small improvements and fixes outlined in the CHANGELOG

This project is based off the original MIT Mobile Framework and was adapted for use at Harvard University. If you have followed the progress of the Harvard project you will notice some improvements and differences:

  • Newer modules including video and HTML content
  • An overhauled configuration system with web-based administration interface
  • A robust authentication system with support for many types of authentication authorities
  • Authorization support to restrict access to content by user or group
  • Many other small improvements to ease in customization

There are some parts of the project that are not present:

  • Modules that have not been generalized are not included. Please refer to the Harvard Mobile Web Repository for modules that you do not find here. Some modules will eventually be generalized and folded into this project.
