Development - From Scratch

If you prefer, you can execute the rails server directly on your host. You may have access to a Postgres and Redis database. Also, like the way of using Docker Compose, you should have access to a Druid data store.

First of all, you have to install the requirements:

  • Ruby 2.5.0
  • Node.js 8.x
  • Yarn 1.9.4+

If you have every requirement ready, let’s install some other dependencies and clone Wizz-Vis and start hacking:

gem install bundler rake

git clone
cd wizz-vis/
bundle install

Create a new .env.local file and override the required env variables referenced at .env file.

Install the node packages dependencies.

yarn install

Create the PostgreSQL database.

bundle exec rake db:create db:migrate

Launch Wizz-Vis using Foreman

foreman start -f -e .env,.env.local
