Quick start


To get started with Instant OpenHIE you will first need to download the CLI tool. The binary may be download via the terminal with the following url based on your operating system

Download the binary

sudo curl -L https://github.com/openhie/instant-v2/releases/latest/download/instant-linux -o /usr/local/bin/instant

Grant the binary executable permissions

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/instant

To test that the binary works, run the executable with no commands to see the help text.

$ ./instant
A cli to assist with package deployment and management

  cli [command]

  completion  Generate the autocompletion script for the specified shell
  help        Help about any command
  package     Package level commands

  -h, --help   help for cli

Use "cli [command] --help" for more information about a command.

Next, you would want to configure which packages Instant can deploy for your particular needs.

Instant doesn't ship with any default packages to deploy. Packages are expected to be created by the community and in time there will be many option available. Jembi has curated a set of packages that we commonly use to help implementer to get started with a foundational set of health information exchange components. To get started with that pre-configured package set, see the OpenHIM Platform docs.

Otherwise, you may create your own config for your own set of packages. Continue to config section to find out how.
