Aurora v2

Web Docker Judge Docker

Aurora is an open-source OJ inspired by SPOJ. Derived from Aurora-Online-Judge, this version improves the scalability and security of the application to meet the requirements for a small scale organization. Its web interface is redesigned from scratch to make it look more SPOJ like. So that users find it comfortable to adjust. It can also serve as a platform to practice as well as compete with other teams. Few features were added so that the administrators find it easy to maintain. It was designed to meet the requirement specific to CQM matches hosted at BIT Mesra, but most of its components can be easily updated to meet the requirement of any other educational organization.

Getting Started

Aurora uses docker for development as well as for running the application. Images for each module is automatically generated and uploaded here. There are docker-compose files sepecific to following usecases.

Run Locally

docker-compose.yml can be used to simple run and test out Aurora on a local environment.

Simply run docker-compose up to pull all the images and run it.

Then visit localhost to test the application.

Note: Since we are using Github packages, you would need to configure docker for use with Github token or docker won't be able to pull the images and docker may start building the image instead. You can follow our Docker Setup Guide to mitigate this build step.

Dev Setup can be used to build, run and test out Aurora on a local environment.

Simply run docker-compose -f build to build.

Run docker-compose -f up to run it on localhost.

Prod Setup is meant to be used as template for prod configuration.

Check our guidelines on how to use this template.


We are using Aurora Wiki to maintain our documentations.
