Setup

What you need:

  • A Java-compatible server or computer with Java 8 or higher installed
  • A simple Webserver (SSL-encryption is highly recommenced)

The webserver and the Tiqo-L server can run on the same machine.

Installation

  1. The Tiqo-L server​​​​​​
    1. ​​​​​​​Download the latest version of Tiqo-L here. It will contain the latest client and the latest server.
    2. Extract the zip-file and copy all files from the "server"-folder into a sepperate folder on the machine that will later run the Tiqo-L Java-server.
    3. Inside this folder you will find a configuration-file called "settings.json". Open the file and fill your servers hostname.
    4. Now the server is ready to start. If you want to use SSL (if your webserver also uses SSL you will need to this since the webbrowser won't connect otherwise) please click here to learn how to setup your certificate.
    5. The folder contains a start file for both windows and linux. Please note that the linux startscript won't start a screen for you so you need to do it manually (eg. screen -S Tiqo-L ./start-tiqo.sh)
    6. The server should be up and running.
  2. The Tiqo-L client
    1. ​​​​​​​Copy the content of the "client"-folder you got from the server installation to the path in your webserver you want the Tiqo-L webpage to be.
    2. Edit the index.html file and fill in the hostname and the port of the server into the header.
    3. (Optional) rename the index.html to whatever name it should be.
    4. (Optional) Be sure to setup SSL on your webserver if you did so on the server.
    5. You are ready! Open the webpage to check if you see the Tiqo-L demo-page!

Now you may continue to code your own Tiqo-L core with Java!
