Captiz is an online subtitling tool.
You can use it to create a project and invite people to transcribe your video and translate your captions.
With Captiz, our goal is to help your community create better subtitles by following strict guidelines like the number of character per second (CPS) or character per line (CPL).
Captiz uses Docker to ease the installation process. So first make sure Docker is installed on your system : https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/
Download the source code, then run :
It’s going to download docker images and start the platform system. You’ll end up in a cli in the node.js app folder.
Run the following command to install dependencies and compile SASS (CSS) :
npm install compass compile .
To populate the database run :
node server.js populate
Then start your server :
Don’t forget to set up emails below.
In order to create a new user or invite someone to create subtitles, you’ll need to set up email sending. By default we use Sendgrid to send emails.
Create and configure your account on sendgrid.com, then go to Settings > API Keys > Create API Key > General API Key > Full Access to Mail Send.
Copy this generated api key in docker-compose.yml in SENDGRID_API_KEY variable. You don’t need SENDGRID_TEMPLATE_ID yet, you can add one later.
Restart the server and you’re done.
make start #launch docker images (Mongodb and platform) make stop make mongo #connect to the local mongodb cli make cli #start a command line interface on platform docker image make #start images + launch platform cli
