XTaTIK::Docs::04_Launch - Launching your first XTaTIK website

WARNING

The launching method described below is currently experimental. It might remain function, with easier alternatives provided, or it might be removed completely.

ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES

XTaTIK uses several environmental variables to figure out what Silos to use to launch an instance of a website. They're as follows:

XTATIK_SITE_ROOT

    XTATIK_SITE_ROOT="/var/www/MySite/silo"

This variable specifies the path where your Site Silo is.

XTATIK_COMPANY

    XTATIK_COMPANY="/var/www/xtatik-company-silo"

This variable specifies the path where your Company Silo is. Since this variable will be shared among your site launches, you may wish put it into your `.bashrc` or similar file, for it to be always set.

RUNNING XTaTIK IN DEVELOPMENT MODE

To run the core XTaTIK system, without any Company or Site Silos, simply run (#TODO: currently this won't work and will beg for the GeoIP file):

    XTaTIK

The development server will now serve on its default port.

If you'd like to see what your Company Silo looks like, simply have XTATIK_COMPANY variable set when you launch XTaTIK:

    XTATIK_COMPANY="/var/www/xtatik-company-silo" XTaTIK daemon

Lastly, to launch a site, specify both Company Silo (if you've used one) and Site Silo:

    XTATIK_SITE_ROOT="/var/www/MySite/silo" \
    XTATIK_COMPANY="/var/www/xtatik-company-silo" XTaTIK daemon

RUNNING XTaTIK IN PRODUCTION MODE

XTaTIK is a Mojolicious application and there are several ways to run it in production mode.

At the moment, please consult https://metacpan.org/pod/Galileo#RUNNING-THE-APPLICATION (use XTaTIK instead of galileo).
