Welcome to My Open Humans Project

This template demonstrates how you can run your own Open Humans data upload project

What does my project do?

This tool allows you to easily setup your own Open Humans project that wants to collect data.

The configuration for this project is in:

  • Environment variables: If you deploy to Heroku, you'll probably be prompted to provide these, and they can be modified in the the app. Locally, your .env file defines these. These are secret details that should not be shared. (Be sure not to add this to your git repository!)
  • Project configuration: The Project Admin page can be used to configure other aspects of your site. Log in with the ADMIN_PASSWORD you set in environment variables.

As you configure the project, replace this "front page" text to inform users what your project is about and what it tries to do. It's the first page they will see, so be verbose!

How it works

  1. Log in or create an Open Humans account
    You can upload your data for once you have done this.
  2. Authorize on Open Humans
    This authorizes us to deposit your archive into your Open Humans account.
  3. Upload your data.
    You will be redirected back to and can then upload your data. You'll be able to access & manage your data on Open Humans.

Will my data be public?

The short answer: No. The longer answer: No, unless you decide that you want to make this data public. If that is the case then you can head over to Open Humans. and make the full archive data publicly available.
