Brightspot offers three ways to get started:

  • Quick Installation walks you through the minimal setup of the Brightspot Tutorial project, intended for use with our series of developer tutorials.
  • Vagrant Installation provides a Vagrant virtual machine that is preconfigured with the database and Tomcat setup. You only need to manage the virtual environment and deploy the WAR file of your application. Vagrant is the recommended installation method for developers.
  • Advanced Installation shows you how to build a local Brightspot environment from scratch. This installation method is for developers who are comfortable installing and managing Tomcat, Solr, and MySQL.
