Setup Scout


Once installed, you can setup Scout by running a few commands using the included command line interface. Given you have a MongoDB server listening on the default port (27017), this is how you would setup a fully working Scout demo:

scout setup demo

This will setup an instance of scout with a database called scout-demo. Now run

scout --demo serve

And play around with the interface. A user has been created with email so use that adress to get access

Initialize scout

To initialize a working instance with all genes, diseases etc run

scout setup database

for more info, run scout --help

If you intent to use authentication, make sure you are using a Google email!
