Project description

Build Status Documentation Status

LAKEsuperior is an alternative Fedora Repository implementation.


The full documentation is maintained in Read The Docs. Please refer to that for more info.


The following instructions are aimed at a manual install using this git repository. For a hands-off install using Docker, see the setup documentation.


  1. Python 3.5 or greater.
  2. A message broker supporting the STOMP protocol. For testing and evaluation purposes, CoilMQ is included with the dependencies and should be automatically installed.

Installation steps

  1. Create a virtualenv in a project folder: python3 -m venv <virtualenv folder>
  2. Activate the virtualenv: source <path_to_virtualenv>/bin/activate
  3. Install dependencies: pip install -r requirements.txt
  4. Start your STOMP broker, e.g.: coilmq &. If you have another queue manager listening to port 61613 you can either configure a different port on the application configuration, or use the existing message queue.
  5. Run lsup-admin bootstrap to initialize the binary and graph stores.
  6. Run fcrepo.


This has been so far a single person’s off-hours project (with much input from several sides). In order to turn into anything close to a Beta release and eventually to a production-ready implementation, it needs some community love.

Contributions are welcome in all forms, including ideas, issue reports, or even just spinning up the software and providing some feedback. LAKEsuperior is meant to live as a community project.

See Contributing Guidelines for further details on how to fork, improve, document and test the project.
