Current version: v3.1
- Java 8 JDK
- SBT (version 1.0.x)
- NEW: as we are introducing React in some UI areas, a number of additional dependencies must be installed. Note that this is not needed for v3.1 yet, only if you build from the current master!
- PostgreSQL DB (tested with version 9.5)
- Important: as of version 2.2, Recogito requires an installation of ElasticSearch v5.6.5. Automatic fallback to an embedded ElasticSearch index is no longer supported.
- To use image annotation, you need to have the vips image processing system installed. If vips is not available on the command line, Recogito is set to reject uploaded images as 'unsupported content'. (Note: on Ubuntu, 'libvips-tools' is the package you need.)
- Clone this repository
- Create a copy of the file
conf/application.conf.templateand name it
conf/application.conf. Make any environment-specific changes there. (For the most part, the defaults should be fine.)
- Create a database named 'recogito' on your Postgres DB server. (If you want a different name, adjust
the settings in your
sbt runto start the application in development mode.
- Point your browser to http://localhost:9000
- Recogito automatically creates a single user with administrator privileges with username 'recogito' and password 'recogito'. Be sure to remove this user - or at least change the password - for production use!
- To generate an Eclipse project, type
Documentation on how to import gazetteers is on the Wiki.

- To test production mode before deploying, type
- To change to a different port (than default 9000), type
sbt "runProd -Dhttp.port=9876"
- For full production deployment, refer to the current Play Framework docs
- Be sure to set a random application secret in
conf/application.conf. Play includes a utility to generate one for you - type
- Last but not least: another reminder to remove the default 'recogito' admin user - or at least change its password!
