Installation on a virtual machine

You can install Brightspot on a virtual machine running on your host. This scenario is useful when developing several instances of Brightspot, or if you want to share a virtual instance with other developers.

A Vagrant-based virtual machine is available that has all of the dependencies required to run Brightspot: Ubuntu Linux server, Tomcat, databases, and ancillary software. You can compile your version of Brightspot and deploy the war file to this virtual machine.

The following sections describe how to retrieve the preconfigured virtual machine and then use it to run Brightspot.

System requirements

To build a development environment with Vagrant, you'll need the following:


MacOS Mojave requires VirtualBox 5.2.20 and Vagrant 2.2.0.
