Visualize your relationships
Rhizom is a web application that can display efficiently a network of relationships.
Authentication is handled by Mozilla Persona.
Rhizom is licensed under the Affero GPL v3 or any later version.
If you are unfamiliar with the way Flask applications are usually deployed, check out the official documentation on Flask’s website.
Rhizom provides some configuration examples to help you get started with common deployment cases, check out the deploy subdirectory.
This is how you can quickly check out Rhizom. Those steps are not fit for a proper production deployment.
Install Rhizom’s dependencies. Do do that you can either use your distribution’s package manager or create a Python VirtualEnv with the following commands:
$ virtualenv venv $ source ./venv/bin/activate $ pip install -r requirements.txt
Create a configuration file called config.py with the following content:
import os basedir = os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(__file__)) DEBUG = True SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'sqlite:///' + os.path.join(basedir, 'rhizom.db') BROWSERID_AUDIENCE = ["http://127.0.0.1:5000"] SECRET_KEY = 'JustHavingALook,ThankYou' ADMINS = ("firstname.lastname@example.org") PROPAGATE_EXCEPTIONS = True
Now initialize the database with the follwing command:
$ RHIZOM_SETTINGS=`pwd`/config.py python rhizom/scripts.py initdb
Finally, start Rhizom with the following command:
$ RHIZOM_SETTINGS=`pwd`/config.py python rhizom/scripts.py runserver
The console should show you the URL to visit, usually http://127.0.0.1:5000. You can now login (using the Persona button) and start creating graphs.
I hope you’ll like it. Feedback is very welcome!
