ScienceMesh-Nextcloud Installation Documentation

Documentation for installing a ScienceMesh-Nextcloud integration.

Installation Guide

The ScienceMesh-Nextcloud connection helps sites who run Nextcloud as their enterprise file sync and share system to join the ScienceMesh.

There are number of things you will need to do get this working for your site:

Enable dynamic share providers in Nextcloud

Apply the dynamic-shareproviders branch to your Nextcloud installation. This is necessary for Nextcloud to recognize shares of type the ‘ScienceMesh’.

Install Revad Edge

See also https://github.com/cs3org/reva:

  git clone https://github.com/cs3org/reva
  cd reva
  git checkout edge
  make deps
  make build

Configure revad

Something like ./mesh.toml. This will probably require some experimentation. You can contact @michielbdejong in https://gitter.im/cs3org/REVA for help.

Install the ScienceMesh app

In your Nextcloud apps folder, run:

  git clone https://github.com/pondersource/nc-sciencemesh sciencemesh

Enable the app in the Nextcloud admin dashboard. This will cause a few necessary database tables to be created.

First use

From there on, follow the admin guide.
