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-5.1.0.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 connecting to the Admin UI (usually accessible at /admin under your server URL) as a user with admin privileges, and using the dedicated button as shown below:

Content Server initialization

  • Serve the activeui-starter-5.1.0 folder using an application server, such as Tomcat or NGINX.
