Staring a Backend Server

Document Manager works with SQL Database named files by default. Make sure that you have a database to store data about files, directories, groups, tags, comments and users. We provide backend code for Document Manager for Golang.

Using Golang Backend

To get the Golang backend for Document Manager, clone the repo and start it locally as:

go build
# bash
./wfs-ls -data some/folder
# cmd
wfs-ls -data some/folder

some/folder is a relative path to a directory where added content will be stored.

Using File Preview Service

We also provide a backend service for generating file previews. Clone the repo and start it locally as:

go build
# bash
# cmd

To use the preview service, start the Golang backend server with the preview parameter:

./wfs-ls -preview http://localhost:3201/preview -data some/folder
wfs-ls -preview http://localhost:3201/preview -data some/folder

Running Package Samples Locally

To run package samples on a local machine you should navigate to the Document Manager root folder, install the necessary dependencies and start a development server as:

// navigate to the root folder
cd docmanager
// install dependencies
yarn install //or npm install
// start dev server
