WireCloud builds on cutting-edge end-user development, RIA and semantic technologies to offer a next-generation end-user centred web application mashup platform aimed at leveraging the long tail of the Internet of Services.

WireCloud builds on cutting-edge end-user (software) development, RIA and semantic technologies to offer a next-generation end-user centred web application mashup platform aimed at allowing end users without programming skills to easily create web applications and dashboards/cockpits (e.g. to visualize their data of interest or to control their domotized home or environment). Web application mashups integrate heterogeneous data, application logic, and UI components (widgets) sourced from the Web to create new coherent and value-adding composite applications. They are targeted at leveraging the "long tail" of the Web of Services (a.k.a. the Programmable Web) by exploiting rapid development, DIY, and shareability. They typically serve a specific situational (i.e. immediate, short-lived, customized) need, frequently with high potential for reuse. Is this "situational" character which precludes them to be offered as 'off-the-shelf' functionality by solution providers, and therefore creates the need for a tool like WireCloud.

Install

$ sudo pip install wirecloud

See the installation guide for more info.

Usage

WireCloud is a user-development tool aimed both at users and developers. Users use the platform to build and/or use their interfaces using deployed widgets and developers, whereas developers do create such components by extending existing ones or creating them from scratch.

In the former, final users can find useful information in the User Guide. In the latter, developers can learn how to develop components in the Programmer Guide

Testing

Testing of WireCloud is based on two different frameworks. On the one side, Python code is being tested using Django's own testing capabilities. On the other side, JavaScript code testing is based on Karma and Jasmine. Both tests are run on a local copy of the WireCloud repository on GitHub, inside the src folder.

Python code

Before running the tests, you have to ensure all the python dependencies are installed on the environment. To do so, execute the following commands on the src folder:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt

Once installed all the dependencies, you can run the Python tests by using the following command:

$ python manage.py test --nologcapture -v 2 -a tags='wirecloud-noselenium'

WireCloud also comes with some selenium tests that can be executed using the following command:

$ python manage.py test --nologcapture -v 2 -a tags='wirecloud-selenium'

In this case, you will need to have Chrome and Firefox installed as well as chromedriver and geckodriver.

JavaScript code

Before being able to test JavaScript code, some dependencies have to be installed:

$ sudo npm install -g grunt-cli
$ npm install

Once installed all the npm dependencies, tests can be executed using grunt:

$ grunt

License

WireCloud is licensed under Affero General Public License (GPL) version 3 (or any later, at your option) with classpath-like exception.

Are there any legal issues with AGPL 3.0? Is it safe for me to use?

There is absolutely no problem in using a product licensed under AGPL 3.0. Issues with GPL (or AGPL) licenses are mostly related with the fact that different people assign different interpretations on the meaning of the term “derivate work” used in these licenses. Due to this, some people believe that there is a risk in just using software under GPL or AGPL licenses (even without modifying it).

For the avoidance of doubt, the owners of this software licensed under an AGPL-3.0 license
wish to make a clarifying public statement as follows:

Please note that software derived as a result of modifying the source code of this software in order to fix a bug or incorporate enhancements is considered a derivative work of the product. Software that merely uses or aggregates (i.e. links to) an otherwise unmodified version of existing software is not considered a derivative work, and therefore it does not need to be released as under the same license, or even released as open source.
