Introduction

VisCodex is for building models of the physical collation of manuscripts, and then visualizing them in various ways. The VisCodex project is led by Dot Porter at the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the University of Toronto Libraries and the Old Books New Science lab. Collaborators include Alexandra Gillespie, Alberto Campagnolo, and Conal Tuohy.

System Requirements

  • rvm (>= 1.29.1)
  • ruby (>= 2.4.1)
  • node (>= 6.11.4)
  • npm (>= 3.10.10)

Additional Requirements for Development:

Development setup with Docker

Instead of manually installing the dependencies locally on your machine for development, you can use Docker with the provided Dockerfile and docker-compose.yml.

Update the mongo host name on line 12 in viscoll-api/config/mongoid.yml from localhost to mongo (this is the Docker service name defined in docker-compose.yml).

Bring up the containers with:

docker-compose up

To access emails being sent by the app (for user account activation, password reset, etc), set up Ethereal with the following credentials:

:user_name => 'libby.corkery17@ethereal.email',
:password => 'RP4P6zMm3rVW9adMZF'

This configuration is located at viscoll-api/config/environments/development.rb.

Installation and Setup

Skip this section if you are using Docker for development.

VisCodex API (Rails)

Rails-driven back-end for VisCodex

System Requirements

  • rvm (>= 1.29.1)
  • ruby (>= 2.4.1)
Additional Requirements for Development:

Setup

Run the following commands to install the dependencies:

rvm --ruby-version use 2.4.1@viscollobns
bundle install

Set the admin email address in two locations:

viscoll-api/app/mailers/mailer.rb on line 18:

toEmail = Rails.application.secrets.admin_email || "dummy-admin@library.utoronto.ca"

and viscoll-api/app/mailers/feedback_mailer.rb on line 10:

to:"utlviscoll@library.utoronto.ca",

Then run this to start the API server:

rails s -p 3001

If you wish to receive confirmation and password reset emails while developing, also start the mailcatcher daemon:

mailcatcher

Testing

Run this command to test once:

rspec

Alternatively, run this command to test continually while monitoring for changes:

guard

VisCodex App (React-Redux)

Redux-driven user interface for VisCodex

System Requirements

  • node (>= 6.11.4)
  • npm (>= 3.10.10)
Additional Requirements for Development:

Setup

Run this to install the dependencies:

npm install

Then run the dev server which brings up a browser window serving the user interface:

npm start

Testing

Run this command to test once:

npm test

Alternatively, run this command to test continually while monitoring for changes:

npm test -- --watch

Building

Before building the app, edit line 3 in viscoll-app/src/store/axiosConfig.js to contain the correct root endpoint of the VisCodex API:

export let API_URL = '/api';

Build the app with:

npm build
