On OSX, this can be done with Homebrew as follows:
brew install npm brew install mongodb brew install redis
You'll also have to set a data directory for MongoDB, as described here. For example, on OSX or Linux, you can set up a data directory in the home directory as follows:
mkdir -p ~/data/db
Check out datamonkey-js
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:veg/datamonkey-js.git
This requires an SSH key for GitHub, as described here.
Install development tools
npm install -g supervisor
cd ./datamonkey-js/ make install
cp ./config/setup.js.tpl ./config/setup.js
The settings within
./config/setup.js will have to be changed to reflect the local environment.
Start MongoDB (e.g. using the data directory in HOME)
mongod --dbpath ~/data/db
Datamonkey should now be running at localhost:4002.
