Reference Implementation - Try it out!

Post updated on March 15 2018 to reflect simplified run commands.

Our project is going into its final phase. We are working on integrating our latest experiences and discussions into the ERC specification and constantly add new features to the implementation of the reproducibility service.

We also try to keep our demo server up to date. But what good is a reproducibility platform, when you can only try it online?

Inspired by the just passed Open Access Week (#oaweek), we’ve started a new repository reference-implementation to expose our developments, which have been open source from the start, to the interested public.

It comprises documentation for run o2r software on a completely new machine:

The only efforts besides a few commands on your computer is registering a client application with ORCID to be able to log in, because there is no other way to authenticate within the o2r platform and microservices. You may also get an access token from Zenodo to “ship” your completed ERC. Eventually this repository will be the basis for a citable package of our software.

We look forward to your feedback!
