Aidbox Configuration project

AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS

Syntax:

AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS=<source>:<format>:<path>[,<source>:<format>:<path>]*

<source> is either a url or a path.

  • url is used to load a project from a remote location

  • path is used to load a project from a local location

<format> is either zip, dir or edn.

Table of compatibility between sources and formats:

Though it is possible to load multiple projects with AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS, it is not recommended as it may lead to namespace clashes and hard-to-debug issues.

Load from a remote source

You can load Aidbox Configuration project from a public HTTPS endpoint.

For example, set

AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS=url:zip:https://github.com/zen-lang/fhir/releases/latest/download/hl7.fhir.r4.core.zip

to load FHIR R4 profiles.

Aidbox can load a single file too:

AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS=url:edn:https://example.org/my-namespace.edn

Load from a local filesystem source

You can use any of the three options: directory, a zip file or an edn file.

For example, set

AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS=path:dir:/srv/aidbox-project

to load a project from a directory located at /srv/aidbox-project.

AIDBOX_ZEN_ENTRYPOINT

AIDBOX_ZEN_LOAD

The AIDBOX_ZEN_LOAD environment variable is used to load a single namespace represented as edn.

Format:

AIDBOX_ZEN_LOAD=<zen-edn>

Example:

AIDBOX_ZEN_LOAD='{ns my-zen-namespace import #{zen-proj1 zen-proj2 zen-proj3

AIDBOX_ZEN_DEV_MODE

The AIDBOX_ZEN_DEV_MODE environment variable is used to enable the hot reloading of the aidbox project.

Format: if the variable is defined in the environment then Zen dev mode is enabled.

Hot reloading works only with directories and files in local file system. I.e. path:dir and path:edn in AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS.

AIDBOX_ZEN_ENTRY, AIDBOX_ZEN_PROJECT, BOX_ENTRYPOINT are deprecated.

AIDBOX_ZEN_PROJECT, AIDBOX_ZEN_ENTRY, BOX_ENTRYPOINT

Deprecated. Use AIDBOX_ZEN_PATHS and AIDBOX_ZEN_ENTRYPOINT instead.

AIDBOX_ZEN_PROJECT environment variable is used to load the Aidbox project from the path specified.

AIDBOX_ZEN_ENTRY environment variable is used to specify zen project entry namespace.

BOX_ENTRYPOINT environment variable is used to specify zen entry symbol.12

BOX_PROJECT_GIT_SUB_PATH

With the use of BOX_PROJECT_GIT_SUB_PATH, it is possible to check out only a specific directory from a repository. The value of the variable should be set to a path starting with a repository name.

For example, suppose you have repository xyz with the following organization:

/a
  b/
/c

If you now set BOX_PROJECT_GIT_SUB_PATH=xyz/a/b, then only folder b is going to be cloned.
