## Getting Started
The client-side code requires building. Currently, no pre-built versions are available (though these can be provided upon request), so this must be done from source. A build script is available, however, which automates the process - as explained below.
### System Requirements
- PHP-enabled web server (Nginx is recommended, but Apache works too)
- MariaDB database with the appropriate table structure pre-loaded
- PHP 7+
- Node.JS (preferably 10+) + npm 6+ (for installing & building the client-side app code)
- [Composer]( (for installing server-side dependencies)
- PHP modules:
- `pdo-mysql` (for the database connection)
### Building From Source
The build script ensures that everything it does will not go outside the current directory (i.e. all dependencies are installed locally).
