Installation

This is a PHP/MySQL web application that you run from a browser. You can install it either locally on your own PC, or to a web/intranet server.

1. Trying it out using Gitpod (requires a github account)

This application is ready to run within the Gitpod IDE. This will allow you to try the application out and develop it for your needs. All you will need is a web browser. Do not use this in production!!!

Launch private demo on Gitpod

The app would take a couple of minutes to launch. Afterwards, you'll see the welcome screen of the app in the right part of the window, where you can start the setup wizard. When prompted to enter the database name, database username and datatbase password, you should enter appgini for all.

Gitpod is intended for previewing the app only, and is not suitable for use in actual production environments.
