With this project, a typical new OpenMRS implementation would no longer manage concepts via the OpenMRS UI at all. Instead, your OpenMRS server would use the Open Concept Lab module to subscribe to a dictionary that you only manage on the cloud through this new application.
Read through the project overview document to get the background of the project. You will also find other links to resources that show the project roadmap.
Also watch the Dictionary Manager Explainer video that explains what the dictionary manager does and how it is a strategic fit for the community.
The client is served by the OCL backend is written in Python/Django and exposes a REST API to it. Backend Github Repo

Technical users should begin by visiting the Getting Started with Dictionary Manager folder. There, it is crucial to go to the Contributing to the Dictionary Manager: Developer Guide. This guide will have lots of relevant content and can answer most questions you will have as a Dictionary Manager contributor. If you are still stuck after double-checking the Dev Guide for answers, ask our squad in the #ocl or #ocl-client-dev Slack channels.
After that, visit the Testing and Continuous Integration Setup for the OCL Client page. It is not recommended to view every single one of our client sprints listed underneath (but feel free to if you like!)
Go to the Non-Technical Users: Getting Started with Dictionary Manager page. There will be several video tutorials and additional context to the Dictionary Manager project.
After completing Getting Started guides from either role:
Dictionary Manager Explainer video.
Concept Management Demo video.
Organisation Management Demo video.
