Getting Started

Atlas builds on top of the Cyclops project and includes the Global Menus project to render and manage a shell around your satellite application.

Since Cyclops is required for Atlas to function, you must first include and configure Cyclops for your project. Next, you will need to include the Atlas bundle, a single JavaScript file that includes all of the resources required to use Atlas (i.e. stylesheets, images, templates, etc).

To launch Atlas, you will need to make a call to Atlas.liftoff() with the options specific to your satellite application. These options are documented in the Liftoff API reference.

Authentication w/Auth0 (Optional)

Atlas supports SSO authentication with Auth0, although this authorization path is now deprecated and is not enabled by default. You should not use Auth0 for any new development and is provided for backwards compatibility until a forthcoming SSO solution is available.

If you do need to use Auth0 for SSO, please see the Liftoff API for information on enabling it.

Simple Example

Use the following example to get started with your integration. You will need to customize the options passed to `liftoff()` before this will be functional.
