Travis (.org) branch Coveralls coverage CircleCI Coverage Status


***Our Hyrax 2.x based app requires the following software to work:

  • Solr version >= 5.x (tested up to 6.2.0)
  • Fedora Commons digital repository version >= 4.5.1 (tested up to 4.6.0)
  • A SQL RDBMS (MySQL, PostgreSQL), though note that SQLite will be used by default if you're looking to get up and running quickly
    • libmysqlclient-dev (if running MySQL as RDBMS)
    • libsqlite3-dev (if running SQLite as RDBMS)
  • Redis, a key-value store
  • ImageMagick with JPEG-2000 support
  • FITS version 1.0.x (1.0.5 is known to be good)
  • LibreOffice

Installing the Scholar application

  1. Clone this repository: git clone ./path/to/local

    Note: Solr will not run properly if there are spaces in any of the directory names above it
    (e.g. /user/my apps/ucrate/)

  2. Change to the application's directory: e.g. cd ./path/to/local
  3. Make sure you are on the develop branch: git checkout develop
  4. Install bundler (if needed): gem install bundler
  5. Run bundler: bundle install
  6. Start fedora: fcrepo_wrapper -p 8984
  7. Start solr: solr_wrapper -d solr/config/ --collection_name hydra-development
  8. Start redis: redis-server
  9. Run the database migrations: bundle exec rake db:migrate
  10. Start the rails server: rails server
  11. Visit the site at [http://localhost:3000] (http://localhost:3000)

  13. Create default collection: bundle exec rails hyrax:default_collection_types:create
  14. Load workflows: bin/rails hyrax:workflow:load

  15. Assigning admin role to user from rails console:
    • admin = Role.find_or_create_by(name: "admin")
