Whitehall App

Using local assets

  • Set STATIC_DEV to point to your local instance of the static app when running the whitehall app e.g. STATIC_DEV=http://static.dev

Getting search running locally

The Whitehall app relies on a separate instance of Rummager for document search. The default (citizen) configuration is overridden by the whitehall-rummager project in the deployment repository.

To use a local copy of Rummager you'll need to:

  • Tell Rummager to use the whitehall Solr core by setting :path: "/solr/whitehall-rummager" in rummager/solr.yml.
  • Tell Rummager to listen for requests on the whitehall path prefix by setting :path_prefix: "/government" in rummager/router.yml.
  • Set RUMMAGER_HOST to point to the local instance of Rummager (e.g. export RUMMAGER_HOST=http://rummager.dev in .powrc).
  • You'll also need to set RUMMAGER_HOST when using the Rummager rake tasks e.g. RUMMAGER_HOST=http://rummager.dev rake rummager:index.
  • Optional: if you want to hit the Rummager app directly from a browser (i.e. not using Accept: application/json), e.g. to see how the citizen app works, then you may want to set SLIMMER_ASSET_HOST to point to your local instance of the static app.

To use a local copy of Solr - see the instruction in the Rummager README.md.
