WorkJS is a Web Application Framework with WebSocket support based on node.js It uses html5 features and does not care to support old web clients.
You need a working node.js installation and npm to install WorkJS.
You also need a PostgreSQL database server (9.5) with a new database. We use PostgreSQL 9.5 as it now provides features like "INSERT ON CONFLICT DO UPDATE" and "CREATE INDEX IF NOT EXISTS". PostgreSQL installation: http://www.postgresql.org/download/linux/ How to install PostgreSQL 9.5 on Ubuntu/Debian/Linux Mint: http://raonyguimaraes.com/installing-postgresql-9-5-on-linux/
For a quick start install the WorkJS package and start the "workshow" demo application. Edit CONF to match your PostgreSQL server and database name. Start the application.
