Getting started

ActiveUI is an off-the-shelf web application allowing users to create and share real-time dashboards, based on large amounts of data stored in ActivePivot.

It is extensible via plugins.

ActiveUI SDK is the TypeScript library behind ActiveUI. It exports building blocks, usable in any application.

Run ActiveUI#

To deploy ActiveUI, you should:

  • Download activeui-starter-5.0.2.zip from Artifactory.
  • Unzip it.
  • Edit env.js to fill in your ActivePivot and Content Server URLs.
tip

If your server is based on the ActivePivot sandbox, then these 2 URLs are likely to be identical.

Initialize your Content Server.#

This can be done by creating a /ui folder in your Content Manager (usually accessible at /content under your server URL) and importing this content into this folder.

  • Serve the activeui-starter-5.0.2 folder using an application server, such as Tomcat or NGINX.
