Development EnvironmentΒΆ

Minimal runnig ORCID Hub (assuming you have created and activated Python 3.6 virtual environment):

virtualenv -p python3.6 venv
. ./venv/bin/activate
pip install -U 'orcid-hub[dev]'
orcidhub initdb
orcidhub cradmin [email protected]  # use a valid email
orcidhub run

You can customize the backend specifying DATABASE_URL (defaul: sqlite:///orcidhub.db), for example:

export DATABASE_URL=postgresql://test.orcidhub.org.nz:5432/orcidhub
# OR
export DATABASE_URL=sqlite:///data.db

It is possible to run the application as stand-alone Python Flask application using another remote application instance for Tuakiri user authentication. For example, if the remote (another application instance) url is https://dev.orcidhub.org.nz, all you need is to set up environment varliable export EXTERNAL_SP=https://dev.orcidhub.org.nz/Tuakiri/SP.

export EXTERNAL_SP=https://dev.orcidhub.org.nz/Tuakiri/SP
export DATABASE_URL=sqlite:///data.db
export FLASK_ENV=development
orcidhub run

To connect to the PostgreSQL node (if you are using the doker image):

export PGHOST=$(docker inspect -f '{{range .NetworkSettings.Networks}}{{.IPAddress}}{{end}}' $(docker-compose ps -q db))
export DATABASE_URL=postgresql://orcidhub:[email protected]${PGHOST}:5432/orcidhub
