Apollo is a web-based application, so the only client side requirement is a web browser. Apollo has been tested on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari and matches the web browser requirements for JBrowse (see jbrowse.org for details).
Note: see the Apollo 2.x quick-start for the quickest way to take care of pre-requisites.
- System pre-requisites (see quick-start guide for simple setup)
- Any Unix like system (e.g., Unix, Linux, Mac OS X)
- Servlet container (must support servlet spec 3.0+) such as tomcat 7
- Java 7+ OpenJDK or Oracle should work.
- Grails (optional, but good for development). The easiest way to install is using sdkman, see Apollo 2.x quick-start for this step)
- Ant 1.8+ (most package managers will have this)
- A database (RDMS) system. Sample configurations for PostgreSQL and MySQL are available. H2 configuration does not require any manual installation.
- Basic tools like Git, Curl, a text editor, etc
- Data generation pipeline pre-requisites (for full list see http://gmod.org/wiki/JBrowse_Configuration_Guide)
- System packages
- libpng12-0 (optional, for JBrowse imagetrack)
- libpng12-dev (optional, for JBrowse imagetrack)
- zlib1g (Debian/Ubuntu)
- zlib1g-dev (Debian/Ubuntu)
- zlib (RedHat/CentOS)
- zlib-devel (RedHat/CentOS)
- libexpat1-dev (Debian/Ubuntu)
- expat-dev (RedHat/CentOS)
- System packages
- Perl pre-requisites:
- Apollo will automatically try to install all perl-pre-requisites
- If you are building Apollo in “release” mode, perl 5.10 or up will be required
- Sequence search (optional)
Package manager commands¶
To install system pre-requisites, you can try the following commands
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk curl libexpat1-dev postgresql postgresql-server-dev-all tomcat7 git
sudo yum install postgresql postgresql-server postgresql-devel expat-devel tomcat git curl
brew install postgresql tomcat git
