This is a Drupal installation profile for B-Translator Server.
What is B-Translator
The codename B-Translator can be decoded like Bee Translator, since it aims at collecting very small translation contributions from a wide crowd of people and to dilute them into something useful.
It can also be decoded like Be Translator, as an invitation to anybody to give his small contribution for translating programs or making their translations better.

Installation is done inside a Docker container. For instructions about installing Docker see: https://docs.docker.com/installation/
- Create a working directory:
- Link the docker directory inside the working directory:
cd workdir/ ln -s ../btr_server/docker .
- Modify and customize the settings:
cp docker/settings.sh . vim settings.sh
- Build a Docker image:
docker/build.sh settings.sh tail -f logs/nohup-btr_server-master-20150929.out less -r logs/nohup-btr_server-master-20150929.out
This will create a docker image, named
btr_server:masterwith a minimal ubuntu system and everything that is needed for the normal work of the Drupal application.
- Create a Docker container like this:
It will create a container with port forwarding like this:
-p 80:80 -p 443:443 -p 2201:2201. If you don’t like the default port forwarding, edit
configand modify it.
- Now you can start and stop the container with
docker/stop.sh, enter the shell of the container with
development=trueis set on the settings, then the code of the application inside the container will be linked to the directories
btr_client/inside the workdir, so that you can edit and work on it easily.
- If it is installed on a local machine (for testing or
development), add the domain names
/etc/hosts, like this:
127.0.0.1 btr.example.org 127.0.0.1 l10n.example.org
This way it can be accessed by typing
https://l10n.example.orgon the browser location.
An easier way to install is by using the script
utils/docker-install.sh which automates the steps above, with
certain conventions for directory names etc.
vim utils/docker-install.sh utils/docker-install.sh --bcl_domain=test.example.org or utils/docker-install.sh $(pwd)/settings.sh \ --git_branch=test --bcl_domain=test.example.org
This script also installs wsproxy, which allows to run more that one
containers with ports 80/443. For this to work, the variable
config is set to empty, so that docker does not forward the
ports 80 and 443 to the containers. The HTTP request forward to the
correct website container is handled by the wsproxy container,
based on the domain name.
NOTE: Although utils/docker-install.sh is handy for making a quick installation, it is highly recommended to read and understand this script, because this will be helpful for maintaining the installation. It is not so long and it is easy to understand.
To change the configuration of the server after it has been built, or in case of using a pre-built image, run:
and give the new settings interactively.
Another option is to edit the configuration settings file and give it as a argument to the script:
docker/enter.sh cp install/settings.sh . vim settings.sh install/config.sh settings.sh
It is also possible to run configuration scripts individually, to change only certain configurations. For example:
docker/exec.sh install/config/domain.sh docker/exec.sh install/config/languages.sh
These scripts can be found on install/config/.
There is a list of FOSS projects, like GNOME, KDE, LibreOffice, etc. that can be automatically imported by scripts (there is a script for each project). They can be imported like this:
docker/enter.sh /var/www/data/get.sh tail -f /var/www/data/nohup-get.out less -r /var/www/data/nohup-get.out /var/www/data/import.sh tail -f /var/www/data/nohup-import.out less -r /var/www/data/nohup-import.out
It is done from inside the Docker container. First we download all
of them, and then they are imported. Downloading can take some time,
and importing even more (many hours, and maybe days), so it is run
nohup and the output can be checked from the log file.
We can also do it from outside the container (in case we want to build outomation scripts etc.) like this:
docker/exec.sh /var/www/data/get.sh docker/exec.sh tail -f /var/www/data/nohup-get.out docker/exec.sh /var/www/data/import.sh docker/exec.sh tail -f /var/www/data/nohup-import.out
Importing a single project can also be done from the web UI and with the drush commands btr-project-add and btr-project-import. For more details see: /var/www/data/README.org
