RCOS Observatory logo

Rewrite of the RCOS observatory in a way that hopefully makes a bit more sense. Since we have kinda lost track of what number we’re on at this point I am codenaming this version Observatory-New (I think it’s the 5th version though).

This implementation is intended to be simpler than previous incarnations in order to be easier to maintain in the long run.

It renders pages as plain HTML with minimal JavaScript and uses SQLite as the database backend.

Major Dependencies


Before anything else make sure that you have the development tools for your system. On Ubuntu/Debian you can install these with:

$ sudo apt install build-essential pkg-config

Then you need to install the openssl development headers. How to do this varies by system but on Ubuntu the package is libssl-dev and should be similar on other distros.

Next install Rust with Rustup. Instructions are on the website linked and is fairly straightforward.

Rocket requires Rust Nightly (for now). This can be set for the Observatory-new repository folder specifically by running

rustup override set nightly

in cloned folder. As of Rustup 1.20.0 this will automatically install the additional tools and can be updated with rustup update.

After that it’s as simple as

$ cargo build

And to run do

$ cargo run


This is for deploying to a server, not a developer machine

Please read the Deploying instructions for information on how to setup and deploy observatory-new.


The code is primarily documented using in-code doc comments. This can be viewed either by browsing the source or in a web browser with.
