REST Technology / Code
Development & Training Resources
- DSpace 7 - Angular UI Development : Getting started with DSpace 7 UI (aka dspace-angular) and how to contribute
- DSpace 7 UI Technology Stack : Overview of technologies we are using, and links to third party resources
- OR2017 DSpace Angular Workshop : Angular UI Training Workshop resources from the OR2017 conference in Brisbane, Australia
Meeting Times & Communication Channels
- Meetings: We meet every week on Thurs at 15:00UTC (11am EDT), alternating (every other week) between text chat meetings (on Slack) and Google Hangouts. Anyone is welcome to join these meetings.
- Upcoming schedule can be found on the DuraSpace Public Events Calendar (iCal, RSS Feed)
- Meetings typically last only one hour (first 1/2 hour concentrates on Angular UI updates/discussion, and the second 1/2 hour on REST API).
- Meeting notes are all available below.
- Google Hangouts: https://hangouts.google.com/hangouts/_/atmire.com/dspace7
- Please be aware our Google Hangouts attendee limit is 25 individuals. While we usually do not get close to that limit, if you have a larger team that wishes to attend, we ask that you consider calling in together (e.g. from a shared conference room).
- Slack: Between meetings, we encourage usage of Slack to keep in touch and ask questions. If you have not yet joined the DSpace Slack, you may request an invite. All are welcome on Slack.
- Email: We use standard DSpace lists to communicate updates, meetings, etc. Early on, we are primarily using dspace-devel (our developers mailing list) and Slack for these communications. Once we get further along, regular updates will also be announced on dspace-community (and other lists).
The facilitator for the new REST API subteam is: Andrea Bollini (4Science)
How to install locally
Please be aware that this all is work in progress and will change often. As we did not release any version (neither an alpha or beta version) yet, there is no stable state to which we can refer to. Nevertheless let us give you some short hints on what you can do to install your own local version:
- Install DSpace 6, create some communities, collections and archive some items. As DSpace 7 is still work in progress it will be good to have some test material in place.
- Shutdown you servlet container and undeploy all previous DSpace UIs
- Compile the current master (https://github.com/DSpace/DSpace/tree/master) and run ant update as usual
- Deploy the webapp dspace-spring-rest as dspace-spring-rest (if you use another path, you may want to change the index.html file withing the webapp)
- Start your servlet container and take a look into its logfiles
- If you have problems deploying the webapp in cause for slf4j and log4j, it may be necessary to delete [dspace]/webapps/spring-rest/WEB-INF/lib/slf4j-log4j12-1.7.22.jar
- Test if dspace-spring-rest was loaded successfully by opening it in a browser. You can compare it to the demo linked above.
- Install dspace-angular. You can try it as described in the OR2017 DSpace Angular Workshop or take a look into the Readme.md in the dspace-angular git repository.
