How to install the AT in goormide
by Stephen Harlow - Wednesday, 23 September 2020, 9:56 PM
 

Since Cloud9 IDE got absorbed by AWS I've missed being able to quickly create an Authoring Tool test environment. That has changed now that I've discovered goormide. Their free plan allows an even simpler 7-step install of the AT; I've put together a video demoing the process:

Installing the Adapt Authoring Tool in gormide

The free plan's low CPU utilisation means courses take a bit longer to build and all the usual caveats apply, i.e., it's not suitable for production environments, but goormide provides a great way to quickly try the tool out.

Hello Stephen

Really helpful, and just set this up following your video. Would I need to do anything to update the framework and/or AT when updates are pushed to Git?

Thanks

Caleb

Hi Caleb, glad you found the video useful. My recollection is that the AT flags updates when you start the server and you have the opportunity to update or continue at that point. There shouldn't be anything else you need to do, although I haven't tested this yet.

Hello Stephen

Could you let me know the command I need to enter to update the Adapt Framework, base on the attached image?

Thanks very much

Caleb

Hi Caleb

If you press Ctrl-C to exit the Authoring Tool then type node upgrade.js and hit Enter you'll be prompted to run the upgrade script:
