The OpenMRS Atlas provides a voluntary registry of OpenMRS implementations all over the world. The server code was written using PHP and has been adapted a few times over the past decade. During GSoC 2016, a new version of the Atlas server code was written in node as the Atlas 3.0 Project, but this new, node-based server code was never fully deployed. During 2017, the OpenMRS infrastructure was migrated and updated so all services are deployed using Docker and our single-signon was switched to use LDAP. As a result, some of the functionality of the PHP-based Atlas has been lost. Given users can no longer authenticate to update their markers and, by default, markers fade over time, the existing markers are beginning to disappear from the Atlas!
The goal of this project is to address the remaining tasks to bring the node-based OpenMRS Atlas into production. This will include some code changes, some additional features (most importantly, adding LDAP support), and ensuring the application can be deployed and configured by our infrastructure (i.e., using Docker).
Add LDAP support for OpenMRS ID (LDAP functionality should be isolated – i.e., avoid LDAP references spread throughout the code)
Support downloadable images (help users create an image for a slide deck without creating a burden on the server)
Refactor marker images to be uploaded (confirm type, limit size) so they can be served securely
All external/user URLs should have “rel=nofollow” (https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_rel.asp)
Allow admins to access to disable/delete anything suspicious
Notify admins when new site is added (including image)
