Starting project

You need:

  • Docker
  • Node

Simplest way to run UBORA locally (updated 21 December 2018):

  1. Run ./Ubora.Web/InitializeDependencies.[bat/ps1].
  2. Run ./Ubora.Web/RunWeb.[bat/ps1].
  3. That's it! Navigate to "https://localhost:5001" on your browser.

NOTE: Don't forget to git pull latest changes! :)

Running Functional tests locally:

  • You need Visual Studio Code installed
  • You need Docker installed
  • Open up project in VS Code.
  • Open up the folder you have Ubora\src in TERMINAL in VS Code.
  • Run the tests using docker-compose -f up

If you have errors do one of the following:

  • docker-compose -f down and run tests again
  • CMD and command docker rm -f postgres and run tests again
  • If nothing works Restarting the computer is always a good option

Getting the latest changes to the test environment when you are running tests locally you need to build them locally in VS Code using these two commands:

  • docker-compose -f src\ up in folder \ubora (Repo) in VS Code
  • docker-compose -f build in folder \ubora\src in VS Code

If you have this error:

  • standard_init_linux.go:187: exec user process caused "no such file or directory"

Then do the following:

Open git bash in Ubora repo folder and insert those three commands:

  • dos2unix
  • dos2unix
  • dos2unix

User accounts

Currently, there exists a predefined System Administrator account:

Developing functional tests (or running functional tests locally without using Docker)

Generally speaking, running through Docker, you always create the database, you always start up the application, you always run all the tests, not to mention the re-building of Docker images which takes ages... That's a lot of time just to run tests. You can develop functional tests much faster by hosting the application separately from running tests, and only running the single test you are writing. Here's how:

1. Set up Selenium environment with Chrome driver

  1. Download the latest Selenium Standalone Server (.jar) from
  2. Download the latest ChromeDriver from (NOTE: Unpack the .zip)
  3. Start the selenium standalone server by entering java -jar PATH_TO_SELENIUM_STANDALONE_SERVER on your favourite command line tool. Example when files are located in the same folder and the Command Prompt points to it: java -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.0.1.jar

NOTES: When you go to http://localhost:4444/ you should see text about Selenium. And more info about setting up the environment here:

2. Host the UBORA web application

  1. Start the application through Visual Studio or PowerShell script and take note on what port it's hosted.

3. Specify port in WebDriverIO config

  1. Make sure the baseUrl in wdio.conf.js (which is located under Ubora/src/Ubora.Web.FunctionalTests) is set to "http://localhost:YOUR_PORT/". Example: baseUrl: 'http://localhost:32769/'

WARNING: Don't commit this! This would break the build in TeamCity.

**4. Run the tests **

  1. Open Git Bash window which points to ../Ubora.Web.FunctionalTests. If you have the extension, you can just navigate to the folder, right-click and select "Git Bash".
  2. Do "npm install" if you haven't done so before.
  3. To run all the tests: ./node_modules/.bin/wdio --port 4444
  4. To run a single test: ./node_modules/.bin/wdio --port 4444 --spec ./features/YOURSPECNAME.feature

NOTE: If you have problems, you might need to update Node. (Find out your version by entering node -v.) Or you have wrong port specified under the wdio.conf.js --- the application has to be running and hosted on exactly that URL.

Nexus is not available on npm. Used nexus 4.1.6 in 3D file viewer from

Nexus is a c++/javascript library for creation and visualization. Because 3DHOP uses the NEXUS multi-resolution format.
