Open Academic Environment (OAE Project)
3akai-ux is the front-end for the Open Academic Environment project.
Documentation on how to install and configure OAE can be found in the back-end repository.
In order to run the the OAE project on HTTPS we recommend following this tutorial. In a nutshell:
# create the certificate sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout <SOME_PATH>/nginx-selfsigned.key -out <SOME_PATH>/nginx-selfsigned.crt
Then create a
self-signed.conf file next to
nginx.conf, uncomment both lines and replace
<%= nginxConf.NGINX_SSL_HOME %> with the path you picked above (
ssl_certificate <%= nginxConf.NGINX_SSL_HOME %>;/nginx-selfsigned.crt; ssl_certificate_key <%= nginxConf.NGINX_SSL_HOME %>;/nginx-selfsigned.key;
Finally, uncomment the following lines in
# listen 443 ssl default_server; # include self-signed.conf;
Reload nginx and HTTPS should work now.
By default 3akai-ux uses the Open Sans font family available from Google's Web Font CDN. When developing locally without a live internet connection, that CDN will be inaccessible. To ensure maximum visual fidelity, those fonts can be installed as system fonts on the local machine. The entire collection can be downloaded from Google.
Documentation (WIP) on how to create custom OAE widgets can be found on the Widget Wiki
Install NPM dependencies
NPM is the package manager that downloads all the Node.js dependencies on which the 3akai-ux test suite relies. To tell NPM to download all the dependencies, run this command in your 3akai-ux directory:
npm install -d
Running the tests
The front-end test suite can be run using Grunt:
grunt test --qunit-host tenant.oae.com
Note that Hilary and its dependencies should be installed and running on your system before the tests can be run successfully.
