Open Datashare

Open Datashare will help you find the application on your computer and run it locally on your browser.

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

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

Keep this Terminal window open until Datashare opens.

3. Datashare should now automatically open in your default internet browser. If it doesn’t, please type 'localhost:8080' in your browser. Datashare runs in your internet browser, even though it will work offline with no internet connection. (See FAQ: Can I use Datashare with no internet connection?)

3. You can now safely close the Terminal window called 'Datashare.command' which describes the technical operations going on during the opening.

It's now time to add documents to Datashare.
