Here we install sample data to work with and we create the skeleton of our module, the three empty directories:
  • queries - Holds SQL queries and views.
  • reports - Holds R reports.
  • views - Holds user interface files.

Set Up a Dev Machine

Complete the topics below. This will set up a machine that can build LabKey Server (and the proteomics tools) from source.

Create Directories

  • Go to the externalModules/ directory, and create the following directory structure and standard.modules file:
reportDemo

├───reports
└───views

Add the following contents to module.properties:

Module Class: org.labkey.api.module.SimpleModule
Name: ReportDemo

Build the Module

  • Open the file module.properties and add the following line:
externalModules/reportDemo
  • In a command shell, go to the module directory.
  • Call 'gradlew deployModule' to build the module.
  • Restart the server to deploy the module.
