This is a Stripes UI module for finding the location of an item on a map.

Install UI-Wayfinder

  1. Load the Stripes platform configuration file into an editor.

    code ~/Desktop/folio/ui/platform-complete/stripes.config.js
  2. Add @folio/wayfinder and @folio/plugin-find-item as an entry to the modules section.

        modules: {
            '@folio/plugin-find-vendor' : {},
            '@folio/vendors' : {},
            '@folio/wayfinder': {},
  3. Download ui-wayfinder to the node_modules/@folio directory and rename the directory.

    cd ~/Desktop/folio/ui/platform-complete/node_modules/@folio
    git clone
    mv ui-wayfinder wayfinder

Modify Instances.js

In order for plugin-find-instance to work properly, Instances.js from the inventory module has to be modified.

cp ~/Desktop/folio/ui/platform-complete/node_modules/@folio/wayfinder/artifacts/Instances.js.bak ~/Desktop/folio/ui/platform-complete/node_modules/@folio/inventory/src/Instances.js

Install and Deploy Okapi Gateway

A suitable Okapi gateway will need to be running. The Folio testing-backend Vagrant box is one way to quickly deploy an Okapi gateway locally.

Register UI Module with the Okapi Gateway

Once you have your Okapi instance deployed, you will need to register meta-data about your UI Module.

Stripes CLI is the easiest way to make the appropriate HTTP requests to the Okapi gateway, so we will assume you have installed the command line tool.

  1. After deploying your Okapi gateway, then change to your UI Module root directory.
cd ~/Desktop/folio/ui/platform-complete/node_modules/@folio/wayfinder
  1. Login to the Okapi gateway using the diku_admin user and the diku tenant.
stripes okapi login diku_admin --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku
  1. Generate and add a UI Module Descriptor to the Okapi gateway automatically, based on the permission set found in package.json.
stripes mod add --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku
  1. Enable UI Module for diku tenant.
stripes mod enable --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku
  1. Assign default permissions for diku tenant.
stripes perm assign --name module.wayfinder.enabled --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku --user diku_admin
stripes perm assign --name settings.wayfinder.enabled --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku --user diku_admin
  1. Logout
stripes okapi logout --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku

Further material on adding permissions can be found at Adding new permissions to FOLIO UI modules and Stripes CLI User Guide.

Deploy UI-Wayfinder

  1. Deploy the corresponding Okapi services by following mod-wayfinder README.
  2. Deploy the platform-complete.
    cd ~/Desktop/folio/ui/platform-complete
    yarn start
