Development instalation using Vagrant

We provide most of the setup steps in a Vagrant box for a clean install in a virtual machine.

In the same directory clone these projects:

git clone

git clone git clone

git clone

Follow instructions in vagrant/README.rst

If you want a local setup follow the instructions in the next section.


  1. Clone project

    git clone

  2. Install elasticsearch, e.g. in /var/local/elasticsearch

  3. Replace its config folder with a symlink to eea.elasticsearch/etc/production/config

  4. Install RDF River Plugin, using elasticsearch plugin script inside its bin folder:

    bin/plugin --url
    --install eea-rdf-river-1.0
  5. Install Jetty Plugin in the same manner:

    bin/plugin --url
    --install elasticsearch-jetty-0.90.0
  6. Install useful plugins for monitoring and debugging:

    bin/plugin -install mobz/elasticsearch-head
    bin/plugin -install lukas-vlcek/bigdesk
    bin/plugin -install OlegKunitsyn/elasticsearch-browse
    bin/plugin -install polyfractal/elasticsearch-inquisitor
  7. Install and configure elasticsearch-service wrapper:

    git clone
    cd elasticsearch-servicewrapper/service
    vim elasticsearch.conf # configure path to elasticsearch
    ./elasticsearch install
  8. Configure users and roles for elasticsearch requests in eea.elasticsearch/etc/production/config/, see Adding Basic Authentication.
