Here’s how to get started customizing your application:

There are many ways to override specific behaviors and views in Blacklight. Because Blacklight is distributed as a Rails engine-based gem, all customization of Blacklight behavior should be done within your application by overriding Blacklight-provided behaviors with your own.

  1. To modify this text, you need to override the Blacklight-provided view. You can copy this file, located in the blacklight gem:
    /opt/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/lib/ruby/gems/2.3.0/bundler/gems/blacklight-8fb25e4c2444/app/views/catalog/_home_text.html.erb
    to your own application:
    /var/app/current/app/views/catalog/_home_text.html.erb
  2. Index your own data into Solr
  3. Configure Blacklight to match your data and user-experience needs
  4. Get in touch with your comments, questions, and ideas
