Authoring SCORM-compatible training using the Adapt Authoring tool at http://localhost:5000.

Login credentials are set from a .env file (See Config section).

Getting Started - docker-compose


Add an .env file with the following:


This is read during "setup."


Do this once:

docker-compose up -d

docker-compose -f docker-compose.setup.yml run --rm setup

Subsequent runnings: `docker-compose up -d`.

### Clean Up

#### To remove containers

docker-compose down

#### To remove data (courses)

This will delete your hard work.

docker volume rm dockeradaptauthoring_adaptdb docker volume rm dockeradaptauthoring_adaptdata

### Backup

Create local archives of both the adapt_authoring folder and database:

docker run -it -w /backup -v dockeradaptauthoring_adaptdb:/adaptdb -v $(pwd)/backup:/backup dockeradaptauthoring_authoring bash -c "tar -czvf adaptdata_date +"%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S".tar.gz /adapt_authoring && tar -czvf adaptdb_date +"%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S".tar.gz /adaptdb"

Getting Started - Using `docker run ...`

### Setup

`docker run -d --name adaptdb -v adaptdb:/data/db mongo`

Adjust values such as `--email` and `--password` as desired:

docker run -it -p 5000:5000 --link adaptdb --name adaptauthoring -v adaptdata:/adapt_authoring garyritchie/docker-adaptauthoring bash -c 'node install --install Y --serverPort 5000 --serverName localhost --dbHost adaptdb --dbName adapt-tenant-master --dbPort 27017 --dataRoot data --sessionSecret your-session-secret --useffmpeg Y --smtpService dummy --smtpUsername smtpUser --smtpPassword smtpPass --fromAddress --name master --displayName Master --email admin --password password'

After a while the container should quit and you should see the following message"

Done, without errors.

The app.productname web application was compiled and is now ready to use.
Installation complete.
To restart your instance run the command 'pm2 restart all'


Once the "Setup" steps are complete, do:

docker restart adaptauthoring

Adapt authoring tool should now be available at http://localhost:5000/


Please Note: Upgrading has had mixed results in recent tests.

Upgrade the AuthoringTool and or Framework (run in a shell):

docker exec -it adaptauthoring bash -c 'node upgrade --Y/n Y'

node upgrade has been stalling... docker run -it -p 5000:5000 --link adaptdb --name adaptauthoring -v adaptdata:/adapt_authoring garyritchie/docker-adaptauthoring bash -c 'node upgrade --Y/n Y'

After a bit you should see:

Great work! Your Adapt authoring tool is now updated.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
