Getting started

Make sure you have met the requirements before getting started.

This chapter describes the development experience for creating a new instance of Fonto Content Quality.

1) New project

Create a new project using FDT by executing the following command and replacing <version> with the appropriate Fonto Content Quality version:


fdt content-quality init --version <version>

FDT has created a file and folder based structure on your local machine as follows:

  • .env

  • Configuration/analysis.xml

The analaysis.xml file contains an example analysis configuration.

fdt content-quality init also creates a .fontoxmlFcqManifest file. This file should not be modified.

2) Configuration

After setting up a new project, it is time to configure the app, analysis and editor. Please follow the Configuration documentation for in-depth instructions.

3) Test run

You are now done configuring the Fonto Content Quality instance and ready to do a test run.

Execute the following command inside your working directory to get your project up and running. This command will build your image and runs it inside a Docker container. The container is cleaned up after you press Ctrl-C to stop the application.


fdt content-quality run

While running your Fonto Content Quality instance, start the local Fonto Editor development server to test your app instance.

Open up a browser and visit the URL of the local development server and test the integration.

See the Tutorial for an example implementation for an annotation type from backend to UX.
