Build Status Coverage Status


OCL client for OpenMRS is a web service that will allow OpenMRS users to manage their dictionaries in the cloud, allow re-usability of the existing concepts and allow one to create custom concepts to complement existing ones while building their dictionaries.

Available Scripts

npm start

Runs the app in the development mode.
Open http://localhost:8080 to view it in the browser.

The page will reload if you make edits.
You will also see any lint errors in the console.

npm test

Launches the test runner in the interactive watch mode.
See the section about running tests for more information.

npm run build

Builds the app for production to the build folder.
It correctly bundles React in production mode and optimizes the build for the best performance.

The build is minified and the filenames include the hashes.


Native Environment Setup

  • Clone a forked version of the repository to your computer;
    git clone

  • In the root directory of the project install all the dependencies;
    npm install

Running the Docker Image

  • Build the Docker image using the provided Docker file in the root folder. docker-compose build.

  • Run the docker image using docker-compose
    docker-compose up.

  • Navigate to http://localhost:8080/.

Choosing an API server

The API accessed by this UI falls back to the OpenMRS demo environment. To specify your own API server create a file called env-config.js under the public directory containing;

var OCL_API_HOST = "<your endpoint, e.g>";
var TRADITIONAL_OCL_HOST = "<your endpoint, e.g>";

These variables will automatically be injected into the app at runtime. This is the same strategy we use while deploying the application.
