Configuration

The application can be configured with a configuration file, via command line arguments or by environment variables. All configuration options have default values. If a configuration option is specified in more than one place, then command line values override environment variables which override configuration file values which override defaults.

The following configuration options are available:

-h, --help

Show help message and exit.

--print-configuration

Print active configuration and exit.

--stream-response

Configuration file

Args that start with ‘–’ (eg. –document-store-port) can also be set in a config file. The configuration file lookup searches the file from current working directory and from the package directory. The name of the configuration file is kuha_osmh_repo_handler.ini.

Note

Invoke with --help to print out config file lookup paths.

Environment variables

If the program will be run by using the scripts provided in scripts subdirectory, the runtime environment can be controlled via scripts/runtime_env, which will be created by copying from scripts/runtime_env.dist at installation time by scripts/install_kuha_osmh_repo_handler_virtualenv.sh.

Running the program

This guide will use convenience scripts from scripts subdirectory. It is assumed that the program was installed by using scripts/install_kuha_osmh_repo_handler_virtualenv.sh.

Run OSMH Repo Handler server:

./scripts/run_kuha_osmh_repo_handler.sh

The script will source scripts/runtime_env and activate the installed virtualenv. Finally it calls kuha_osmh_serve, with given command line arguments.
