A Buildout recipe to install and configure ncWMS2 server with Anaconda.

Project description

Travis Build

Introduction

birdhousebuilder.recipe.ncwms is a Buildout recipe to install and configure ncWMS server with Anaconda. This recipe is used by the Birdhouse project.

Usage

The recipe requires that Anaconda is already installed. It assumes that the default Anaconda location is in your home directory ~/anaconda. Otherwise you need to set the ANACONDA_HOME environment variable or the Buildout option anaconda-home.

It installs the ncWMS2 and apache-tomcat package from a conda channel in a conda enviroment named birdhouse. The location of the birdhouse environment is .conda/envs/birdhouse. It deploys a Supervisor configuration for Tomcat in ~/.conda/envs/birdhouse/etc/supervisor/conf.d/tomcat.conf. Supervisor can be started with ~/.conda/envs/birdhouse/etc/init.d/supervisord start.

By default ncWMS2 will be available on http://localhost:8080/ncWMS2.

The recipe depends on birdhousebuilder.recipe.conda, birdhousebuilder.recipe.supervisor and birdhousebuilder.recipe.tomcat.

Supported options

This recipe supports the following options:

anaconda-home

Buildout option with the root folder of the Anaconda installation. Default: $HOME/anaconda. The default location can also be set with the environment variable ANACONDA_HOME. Example:

export ANACONDA_HOME=/opt/anaconda

Search priority is:

  1. anaconda-home in buildout.cfg
  2. $ANACONDA_HOME
  3. $HOME/anaconda
data_dir
Root Path of data files (NetCDF) for ncWMS2 (used in dynamic service outputs). Default: ~/.conda/envs/birdhouse/var/lib/pywps/outputs
title
Title for this Web Map Service. Default: Birdhouse ncWMS2 Server
abstract
More details about this Web Map Service. Default: ncWMS2 Web Map Service used in Birdhouse
contact
Name of server administrator. Default: Birdhouse Admin
organization
Organization of server administrator. Default: Birdhouse
url
Web site of the service provider. Default: http://bird-house.github.io/
enablecache
Enable WMS caching: Default: false

To configure tomcat see the options in the tomcat recipe. For example:

http_port
HTTP Port for Tomcat service. Default: 8080
ncwms_password
Enable ncWMS2 admin web interface by setting a password: Default: disabled

Example usage

The following example buildout.cfg installs ncWMS2 with Anaconda and default options:

[buildout]
parts = ncwms

anaconda-home = /home/myself/anaconda

[ncwms]
recipe = birdhousebuilder.recipe.ncwms
organization = Birdhouse
http_port = 8080

An example GetCapabilities URL to access for an output NetCDF file in outputs (using DATASET param):

http://localhost:8080/ncWMS2/wms?SERVICE=WMS&REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.3.0&DATASET=outputs/malleefowl/tasmax.nc
