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  # use a valid email
orcidhub run

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

export DATABASE_URL=postgresql://
# 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, all you need is to set up environment varliable export EXTERNAL_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}}' $(docker-compose ps -q db))
export DATABASE_URL=postgresql://orcidhub:p455w0rd@${PGHOST}:5432/orcidhub
