SUL Spotlight Exhibit
master branch provides a template Spotlight application with SUL branding and functionality.
Exhibits need to provide the following configuration files:
config/database.yml- Standard Rails database configuration
config/honeybadger.yml- Honeybadger.io exception reporting configuration
config/blacklight.yml- Blacklight solr configuration
- config/initializers/secret_token.rb - Rails secret token
A Rake task is provided to (re)index content into the Solr index. It uses the configured sets in
$ rake spotlight:index
A whenever-based cron task is configured to run nightly to keep the exhibit synchronized with the latest upstream changes. At this time, the task only adds or modifies records, and does not remove records that have been deleted or disassociated with the given OAI set.
- Redis (for running background jobs with Sidekiq)
See projectblacklight/spotlight for additional requirements.
Install dependencies, set up the databases and run migrations:
$ bundle install $ bundle exec rake db:setup
You can spin up the Rails server, solr_wrapper, and populate the Solr index using this command:
$ REMOTE_USER="firstname.lastname@example.org" bundle exec rake server
When prompted to create an admin user, the email should match the email provided in
REMOTE_USER. This will allow you to bypass the webauth authentication.
Run RuboCop and tests:
$ bundle exec rake
Tip: if you receive the error message
ERROR: Core 'blacklight-core' already exists! you have an instance of Solr running elsewhere. Clean out your data with
solr_wrapper clean or search for rogue instances with
ps aux | grep solr.
You must be on VPN to deploy the worker machine. Then deploy as usual using Capistrano:
$ cap stage deploy
