    1: 
    2: Setup instructions for Bookie.
    3: <p>
    4: If you're just browsing or don't need to edit files directly, you can look
    5: at Bookie through the <a
    6: href="http://www.mozdev.org/source/browse/bookie/">web interface</a>.
    7: <p>
    8: If you want to contribute to Bookie or compile it, then you should grab a
    9: CVS <a href="http://www.cvshome.com">client</a> and set up a workspace for bookie.
   10: <p>
   11: 
   12: You download bookie by doing this (you only need to login once, the password
   13: is guest).

   17:  cvs -d :pserver:guest@mozdev.org:/cvs co bookie

   20: <p>The database needs data in order to work.  I wrote /scripts/import.pl
   21: which takes in my bookmarks.html file from Netscape and pumps it into the
   22: database.  The script relies on <code>HTML::Filter</code> and
   23: <code>HTML::TokeParser</code> may need to download from ActivePerl or CPAN.
   24: 
   25: <p>You need to have a database set up with a database schema.  Look in
   26: /sql/solid for an example schema.  It's not too complicated.
   27: 
   28: <p> You can start the server from the root directory with: <br>
   29: <code>java bookie.xmlrpc.BookieServer -Dbookie.logging=./scripts/logging.properties
   30: -Dbookie.database=./scripts/database.properties</code><br>
   31: 
   32: <p>There's an Ant script in ./scripts/ which handles compilation and testing.
   33: 
   34: <p>Right now, the only way you get useful data is with the test class
   35: <code>ClientTest</code>, which reads in the RDF to a memory model and writes
   36: out the answer to some queries (like 'what children does the root node
   37: have?').  More is on the way.
   38: 
   39: <p>
   40: Will.
