Please get in touch via Twitter (@FrameTrail) or mail us at joscha.jaeger | at | filmicweb | dot | org if you need help setting up a FrameTrail project. We offer both technical assistance and consulting. If you have ideas for a joint project / collaboration that involves FrameTrail, let's talk!
Apache Web Server (2.2.29 +) with PHP (5.6.2 +)
(any other configuration might also be fine, but this one has been tested)
If you don't have a server you can try FrameTrail locally using the tools XAMPP or MAMP.
Please note that you can use FrameTrail "read-only" locally without any server, as long as your browser supports local Ajax requests (there are known issues with Chrome, but Firefox should work in most cases). Of course you won't be able to use the editing features.
More information about how to use FrameTrail as a "stand-alone" app without a server will be provided soon in the Advanced Use tutorial.
Installing FrameTrail basically means copying the downloaded package to your server and follow the instructions on the screen. However, a little knowledge of server architectures is helpful, as you might need to change things like file and folder permissions.
git clone https://github.com/OpenHypervideo/FrameTrailor Download ZIP to your server directory (i.e.
https://localhost/DIRECTORY-NAMEif you're using XAMMP, MAMP etc. for a local setup).
To update your FrameTrail instance, download the latest release and copy / replace it on your server. Just make sure you don't overwrite the
/_data folder, as that contains your personal settings and project data.
