Installation

Introduction

Here are the steps to follow to install the software locally on your machine. The examples are realized on a linux system.

ANIS is composed of a monorepo projects thaht contains server, client, services and tasks and we will see how to install the stack.

Git Repository

The ANIS source code is available on a public gitlab repository. Here we will retrieve the ANIS project by cloning the official git project.

$ git clone git@gitlab.lam.fr:anis/anis-next.git
$ cd anis-next

Docker & docker-compose

ANIS is designed to work through docker containers and each part of ANIS (server, client, services and tasks) will run in four respective containers.

In the development mode, ANIS provides a docker-compose file that allows the management of containers (start, stop, restart, logs, ect...). You can find the docker-compose.yml file at the root of the project. It aims to list all the containers necessary for the operation of ANIS.

To operate ANIS needs, in addition to the four containers mentioned above, several other containers:

  • keycloak: Single sign-on with identity and access management. Used in ANIS to manage user accounts and dataset rights.
  • postgres: Database management system used to install the configuration database and the test business database.
  • rabbitmq: Message-broker software used to launch asynchronous tasks.
  • maildev: Software used to send or receive emails in dev mode.

Makefile

ANIS contains a Makefile that helps the developer to install and start the application. Just for information, to list all operations availables just type make in your terminal.

anis_make

Warning: If you encounter problems with file permissions, check in the Makefile the UID and GID variables. The UID and GID must match your user and group. By default the UID and GID is set to 1000:1000.

Dependencies

Install client dependencies

The client part is written with Angular/TypeScript and requires dependencies to work. To install type this make command:

$ make install_client

The client dependencies packages will be downloaded and placed in a folder named client/node_modules. This may take a few minutes. Just for information, you can find the list of dependencies in the client/package.json file.

Install server dependencies

The server part is written with php and requires dependencies to work. To install type this make command:

$ make install_server

The server dependencies packages will be downloaded and placed in a folder named server/vendor. This may take a few minutes. Just for information, you can find the list of dependencies in the server/composer.json file.

Install services dependencies

The services part is written with python and requires dependencies to work. To install type this make command:

$ make install_services

The services dependencies packages will be downloaded and the command installs a virtual python environment in the services/venv directory. This may take a few minutes. Just for information, you can find the list of dependencies in the services/requirements.txt file.

Install tasks dependencies

The tasks part is written with python and requires dependencies to work. To install type this make command:

$ make install_tasks

The tasks dependencies packages will be downloaded and the command installs a virtual python environment in the tasks/venv directory. This may take a few minutes. Just for information, you can find the list of dependencies in the tasks/requirements.txt file.

Start application

It is now time to start the ANIS stack. To do this use the following make command:

$ make start

This command will use the docker-compose.yml file to create and launch the different containers needed for ANIS. This may also take a few minutes. You can see the status of ANIS containers by typing the following command:

$ make status

You can also follow the containers logs by typing:

$ make logs

Databases

To works ANIS need at least two databases:

  • One database to store the configuration
  • At least one database containing datasets

In the dev version we provide two ready-made databases. To install them type the following command:

$ make create-db

Data

To works, ANIS must be associated with a data directory. This directory will serve files associated with scientific projects and datasets.

In the dev version we provide a data directory with examples files. To install them type the following command:

$ cd ..
$ curl https://anis.lam.fr/files/anis-data.tar.gz
$ tar xvf anis-data.tar.gz

At the root of the project you can see a symbolic link to the directory you just downloaded: data.

ANIS is ready to use!

Server

  • The server API is available at the following address: http://localhost:8080

anis_server_root

Few examples:

  • To list all instances available: http://localhost:8080/instance
  • To list all datasets available in the default instance: http://localhost:8080/instance/default/dataset
  • To print all data for the observations dataset with column 1, 2 and 3: http://localhost:8080/search/observations?a=1;2;3
  • To count number of data available for the observations dataset: http://localhost:8080/search/observations?a=count
  • To print only 3 observations data (search by id): http://localhost:8080/search/observations?a=1;2;3&c=1::in::418|419|420

Client

  • The client is available at the following address: http://localhost:4200

Services

  • The services are available at the following address: http://localhost:5000
