Start Datashare

Find the application on your computer and run it locally on your browser.

Once Datashare is installed, go to "Finder", then "Applications", and double-click on "Datashare".

A Terminal window called 'Datashare.command' opens and describes the technical operations going on during the opening.

Keep this Terminal window open as long as you use Datashare.

Datashare should now automatically open in your default internet browser. If it doesn’t, type "localhost:8080" in your browser. Datashare must be accessed from your internet browser (Firefox, Chome, etc), even though it works offline without Internet connection (see FAQ: Can I use Datashare with no internet connection?).

You can now add documents to Datashare.
