Usage & Development

If you want to adapt this software make sure to have your development environment set up like described in the DeepaMehta Plugin Development Guide.

To install and setup hot-deployment for this plugin when having just downloaded and unzipped deepamehta, you could, for example configure your deepamehta bundle directory in the pom.xml of this plugin. Therefore add a dm4.deploy.dir path as a property to the pom.xml in this directory. For example:


To build the dm4-kiezatlas-website module successfully you'll need to build or install its dependencies into your local maven repository. This is due to the fact that we did not have the time to publish these bundles on maven central.

To do so, check out the following plugins source code from github and run mvn clean install in all of them: dm4-kiezatlas, dm4-kiezatlas-etl, dm4-geospatial, dm4-thymeleaf, dm4-images, dm4-kiezatlas-angebote, dm4-webpages and dm4-sign-up.

After you have done that you can build and hot-deploy the sources of the dm4-kiezatlas-website plugin using the following two commands:

mvn clean package

Grunt here is used to concat and minify some of the javascript sources as well as our custom selection of semantic-ui css components. Maven compiles the java sources and builds the plugin as an OSGi bundle.
