    1 This file is for you to describe the oai_info_editor application. Typically 
    2 you would include information such as the information below: 
     3The following should be installed to run the OAI Info editor: 
     41. Python2.5 - see 
     52. Pylons - see 
     63. Genshi - see 
     74. OAIBatch - see [or main trunk when things have been properly merged] 
     85. ndgCommon - see 
     10NB, it is easier to setup the prereqs by using easy_install - 
     11- then you can just run, easy_install pylons, easy_install genshi, etc. 
    413Installation and Setup 
     15Once the prereqs are installed and the codebase is extracted to a local: 
    7 Install ``oai_info_editor`` using easy_install:: 
     17i) Adjust the content of the config files in oai_info_editor directory as follows: 
    9     easy_install oai_info_editor 
     20- adjust the host and port settings appropriately 
     21- turn debug on/off 
     22- adjust logging level of server output (adjust the logger_root settings) 
    11 Make a config file as follows:: 
    13     paster make-config oai_info_editor config.ini 
     28- server - NB, this should match the host and port settings in the development.ini file 
     29- mailserver - SMTP server for sending mails 
     30- proxyServer - proxy server to use, if required 
    15 Tweak the config file as appropriate and then setup the application:: 
     33- appDataFileName - name of the data file used to store the provider info in - NB, this 
     34is suffixed with '_provider_info_data.xml' 
     35- appDataFileDir - the directory, relative to the run directory, to store the 
     36change history data and any parser data files 
     37- backupFileDir - the directory, relative to the run directory, to store backups of 
     38the data files in the appDataFileDir 
     39- harvestDir - the directory to harvest OAI documents to 
    17     paster setup-app config.ini 
     42- userIDs - include a list of user IDs which have access to the OAI Info Editor 
    19 Then you are ready to go. 
     44NB, each user ID should then have its own section - e.g. if userIDs is as follows: 
     46userIDs: calum bob fred 
     48there needs to be three futher sections, [calum], [bob] and [fred]  
     50- the content of these additional sections should include the following: 
     51- pw - the password matching the user ID 
     52- providerNames - a semicolon delimeted list of provider names that the user ID has 
     53view/edit access rights to.  NB, if the user can view/edit everything, providerNames 
     54should be set to the value, admin 
     56- e.g. for the above example: 
     59pw: gloopy 
     60providerNames: admin 
     63pw: bob 
     64providerNames: provider1 
     67pw: fred 
     68providerNames: provider2;provider3 
     70- calum is then an admin user and bob can view/edit provider1 info, whereas fred 
     71can view/edit provider2 AND provider3 info. 
     73ii) Add a config file for the postgres DB used by the discovery service; this is required 
     74when documents are harvested via the editor - since once the harvest is complete, the 
     75data is automatically ingested into the discovery service.  The file should be in 
     76the oai_info_editor directory and be called, 'ingest.config'.  The contents should 
     77be of the format: 
     79databaseName hostName userName password portNumber 
     81(NB, portNumber is optional) 
     83iii) From the oai_info_editor directory, run: 
     85paster serve --reload development.ini 
     88Using the Editor 
     90A help guide is available from the web app - click on the link, 'help' for detailed 
     91instructions on how to use. 
     96A suite of unit tests is available under oai_info_editor/tests - the file,,  
     97in this directory, can be used to discover and run all the tests via the python nose module -  
     98just run it as a python app. 
     101 Further Notes 
     103i) The editor uses the OAIBatch codebase to do the ingest - using the same 
     104script, oai_document_ingester, that is used by the discovery service

     204                    to that; NB, the ingest is rather a slow process so it is instigated asynchronously.
