DaSCH Applications and Libraries Monorepo

Github Docker CI

This monorepo host different applications and libraries of the DaSCH Service Platform.

DSP-APP — Generic user interface of DaSCH Service Platform

This app is a simple user interface for the research data repository of the Swiss National Data and Service Center for the Humanities (DaSCH), which uses the DSP-API server application in the backend. It's a system for annotation and linkage of resources in arts and humanities.

DSP-APP implements DSP-JS-LIB to connect with DSP-API. DSP (DaSCH Service Platform) is a software framework for storing, sharing, and working with primary resources and data in the humanities.

DSP-APP is free software, released under GNU Affero General Public license.

User Quickstart

To try out DSP-APP you first need to start the backend DSP-API:

# go the dsp-api repository in a terminal and start the api
$ make init-db-test
$ make stack-without-app

# come back to this repository and start the app
$ npx nx run dsp-app:serve

Developer Quickstart

The monorepo is implemented using NX.

The most common commands are defined in package.json.

NOTE: You can install nx globally with npm install -g nx. If not, then all nx commands bellow need to be prefixed with npx.
