Travis CI Status

Online demos

Check out our online demos.

Use node version LTS (Long Term Support) through nvm (

nvm install --lts

How to use

cd %examplename%
nvm use --lts
npm i
npm run build
npm start

npm run build will create the minified js file for production use

npm start will start up the debug server at http://localhost:3000/

npm run package will generate a production version of the application.

Applications that need access to a local GeoServer will need to run (in addition to npm start):

npm run start:proxy this will start up the application at http://localhost:4000/ and will have a proxy to a local geoserver on port 8080 (proxy-config.json).

Linking to a github directory of the sdk

Add a NPM link to the SDK release directory. Go to the directory of your SDK git checkout and type:

npm run release
cd release
npm link

Add a NPM link to the SDK node_modules/react subdirectory:

cd ../node_modules/react
npm link

Add a NPM link to the SDK node_modules/openlayers subdirectory:

cd ../openlayers
npm link

Add the links to your SDK apps. After changing the current working directory to your sdk app type:

npm link @boundlessgeo/sdk
npm link react
npm link openlayers

Once complete go to the root of your sdk checkout and run the watchdog.

npm start

This will be the result on file system (check with something like: ls -l ~/.nvm/versions/node/v6.9.2/lib/node_modules/):

lrwxrwxrwx  1 bartvde bartvde   53 jan  4 17:59 openlayers -> /home/bartvde/opengeo/git/sdk/node_modules/openlayers
lrwxrwxrwx  1 bartvde bartvde   48 jan  4 17:59 react -> /home/bartvde/opengeo/git/sdk/node_modules/react

The sdk symlink will be in a subdirectory called @boundlessgeo (ls -l ~/.nvm/versions/node/v6.9.2/lib/node_modules/@boundlessgeo/):

lrwxrwxrwx 1 bartvde bartvde   37 apr 24 13:39 sdk -> /home/bartvde/opengeo/git/sdk/release
