1 Installation

  1. Install Virtualbox from https://www.virtualbox.org (you need at least Version 5.2.8 for these snapshots to work)
  2. download: http://files.apertus.org/AXIOM-Beta/AXIOM_DEV.tar.gz
  3. Import the AXIOM DEV.vbox into Virtualbox and load the snapshot that has everything set up and running already.
  4. We recommend to run a git pull to make sure you have the absolutely latest source code inside the VM




2 Working with the VM

Whenever you close the VM, be sure to save the state. You should also remember to make snapshots once in a while - in case something happens and you want to return to the work you were doing.

We witnessed that the date/time inside the VM is sometimes off, this can cause problems with GIT not updating to the current version.

You will probably want to add your github credentials to Webstorm - you can find out how to do that pretty easily at Github and by following the webstorm GUI.
