Project Description

Lokai is a flexible business process management tool that enables teams to work together, and places those teams in the context of a wider business. A single instance of the tool can handle as many projects or tasks as required, with no need to deploy separate project or process specific environments that cannot share data.

The tool freely mixes documentation, activity management and data access in ways that are appropriate to the project, process or task in hand. There is no constraint on how this might be done, and different tasks or projects may use different arrangements within the same environment.

Access management allows people to see and manipulate data in ways that are appropriate to their role and work. Team members may work on more than one task or project. Managers may manage more than one project. A person can be a team member on one project and a manager on another.

The key to this flexibility is a hierarchical data model with interlinking between sub-trees. The structure and the links are fully user controlled.

Lokai is a web served application, written in Python.

The code itself is written in an extendable manner that allows a great deal of flexibility in the type of data represented, and in the presentation of that data. Each node in the hierarchy can be different. At its simplest, this allows for activities and documentation to be held in the same structure, so that everything relevant to the project or process is to hand. Whatever data is being handled, the user is presented with a consistent interface where access rules and navigation are given.

Requirements

Lokai requires Python 2.5 or higher. Python 3.0 is not yet supported.

Other dependencies:

Posgtgresql

SqlAlchemy (version 0.6)

Werkzeug

PyUtilib

Docutils

Reportlab

Lokai is developed under Linux and is currently being run under Ubuntu. Lokai itself does not use C extensions and the intention is that the development is independent of operating system. However, no tests have been done on other operating systems, or on other distributions.

Install

Download the package tarball and unpack it. Go into the distribution directory and run:

python setup.py install

or, more simply, don’t bother with the download and just type:

pip install lokai

To build a workable instance:

Create a working directory for your new instance. And change into it.

Copy lk_config.ini from the config folder of the installation.

Review the content of the .ini file. It should work out of the box. However, you might want to change the default database name to something other than lokai_soft.

Create the database:

tb_migrate.py login.login_db=max

tb_migrate.py lk_worker.nodes_db=max

Copy initial_data.yml from the doc/initial_settings folder of the installation. This contains a basic administrator login and a starting node for the database.

Use the initial data:

lk_initial_data -f initial_data.yml

For a quick hit, start the publisher stand alone:

python -mlokai.lk_ui.publisher

Now browse to localhost:8080.

To configure and use the fcgi interface, please go to our main site.

Upgrade from version 0.2.0

If you have an existing installation you will need to upgrade the database. This is simply a matter of going to the working directory and running

tb_migrate.py login.login_db=max

tb_migrate.py lk_worker.nodes_db=max

Help

Documentation is available. This is sparse at the moment but more is coming.
