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 nodejs 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 single-signon was switched to use LDAP. As a result, some of the functionality of the PHP-based Atlas has been lost.


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 (e.g., LDAP support), and dockerizing the application.

Required Skills

  • Nodejs
  • Ability to write and refactor a REST API
  • Basic Javascript and HTML


  • Add LDAP support for OpenMRS ID

  • Dockerize the application
  • All features, including basic administrative functions should be performed through REST API calls
  • 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

  • Prevent javascript injections (including when displaying user-uploaded images)
