Install Actinium

Step 1: Atomic Reactor CLI

If you don't have it already, globally install the Atomic Reactor CLI
$ npm install -g @atomic-reactor/cli

Step 2: Install Database

Actinium relies on MongoDB as its database service. You will need to set up a local instance for development purposes.
You can install MongoDB however you wish, but Homebrew is an easy way.

Install Homebrew

$ /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

Install MongoDB

If you're not sure if you have MongoDB installed already or are running an older version that may not be supported, you can run:
brew services stop mongodb
brew uninstall mongodb
$ brew tap mongodb/brew
$ brew install mongodb-community

Run MongoDB Service

$ brew services start mongodb-community

Step 3: Create DB Users

If this is your first time running MongoDB locally, you'll need to create the root admin user account.

Create DB Admin User

$ mongo
$ use admin
$ db.createUser({user:"dbadmin", pwd:"PASSWORD", roles:[{role:"root", db:"admin"}]})
Note: be sure to replace PASSWORD with the actual password you wish to use

Create DB Actinium User

$ use actinium
$ db.createUser({user:"actinium", pwd:"PASSWORD", roles:["readWrite"]})
$ exit
Note: be sure to replace PASSWORD with the actual password you wish to use

Step 4: Install Actinium

$ arcli install actinium
$ arcli install

Step 5: Configure Actinium

Configure Actinium to run using the default db and user:
$ arcli db -u "mongodb://actinium:[email protected]:27017/actinium"

Step 6: Run Locally

$ npm run local
