HiveMind is a comprehensive ERP application for service organizations. It includes a project management application featuring project/task, request, and content (wiki) management. There is support for multiple vendors, multiple clients, flexible billing rates, time recording, expenses, invoicing (AR/AP), payments, and general ledger.

Running HiveMind

To run HiveMind you need Moqui Framework, HiveMind itself, and the components it depends on. Moqui supports a few methods for setup and deployment as described in the documentation here:

The easiest way to try HiveMind is with the binary distribution available on GitHub:

If you don't have gradle or ant installed you can use this command line to run Java directly:

$ java -jar moqui.war

Build and Run Locally

To get and locally run the latest HiveMind you'll need JDK 8 or later (OpenJDK or Oracle), and either a git client or you can use the binary download link on GitHub.

Java can be downloaded here (make sure to use the Download button under the JDK column, NOT the under the JRE column):

The following instructions use the Gradle Wrapper to build. You can optionally download and install Gradle (from and use gradle instead of ./gradlew in the example commands.

To download Moqui/Mantle/HiveMind source and build/run locally use the following steps:

Step 1: Download Moqui Framework



From either source you should put the contents in a moqui directory for the next steps. If you use the Zip download change the directory name from moqui-framework-master to moqui. If you clone the Git repository clone it into a moqui directory.

Step 2: Download HiveMind and Dependencies

This is easy with the dependency configuration per component, and the Gradle get component tasks. With Gradle Wrapper you don't need to install Gradle separately to do this. The HiveMind component is configured by default in the Moqui addons.xml file, so just run:

$ ./gradlew getComponent -Pcomponent=HiveMind

If you downloaded the zip archive for Moqui Framework this will download the zip archives for HiveMind and each component it depends on. If you cloned from the git repository this will clone all components from their repositories.

Step 3: Build and Load Data

From the moqui directory run:

$ ./gradlew load

This will build Moqui and load seed and demo data from all components into an embedded H2 database.

Step 4: Run Moqui

From the moqui directory run:

$ java -jar moqui.war

Step 5: Access the HiveMind applications

Setup Commands Quick Reference

Java 8 JDK is required (OpenJDK or Oracle):

Here are command line steps for initial checkout, setup, and run:

$ git clone [email protected]:moqui/moqui-framework.git moqui
$ cd moqui
$ ./gradlew getComponent -Pcomponent=HiveMind
$ ./gradlew load
$ java -jar moqui.war

Here are steps for a basic update (for development with clean out and rebuild of database):

$ cd moqui
$ ./gradlew cleanAll gitPullAll
$ ./gradlew load
$ java -jar moqui.war

To access the project management app go to something like http://localhost:8080/vapps/hm in a web browser. To access the admin app go to http://localhost:8080/vapps/hmadmin.
