There are two potential steps in setting up Iglu – you may choose to either or both of them:
Iglu clients are used for interacting with Iglu server repos and for resolving schemas in embedded and remote Iglu schema repositories.
Already setup your Iglu client? Then also check out step 2: setup a repository.
An Iglu repository acts as a store for data schemas, initially JSON Schemas.
An Iglu repository can be embedded in a piece of software or hosted remotely. Iglu clients resolve schemas from one or more Iglu schema repositories.
