Installation

Brightspot offers different ways to get started:

  • Quick installation walks you through the minimal setup of the Brightspot Tutorial project, intended for use with a series of developer tutorial.

  • Installation on a virtual machine explains how to install a development environment on a virtual machine in general, and for installing on a Vagrant virtual machine that is pre-configured 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.

Brightspot supports any operating system that runs Java, all recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, and Internet Explorer 11 or better.
