Install App

First, you need to setup an isolated developement environment for the python apps using virtualenv_. If you don't have virtualenv_, you can install it using your package manager such as apt if you're on debian:

apt-get install python-virtualenv
virtualenv unisson-env

Then, enters the environment:

cd unisson-env
source bin/activate

Your prompt should update to something like (note the prefix):


.. warning:: For all next steps, you need to be in an activated environment.

Getting the code

Once you're in your virtualenv directory, use::

git clone https://github.com/UnissonCo/unisson.co
cd unisson.co

fetch the dependencies using::

pip install -r requirements.txt

It may be the right time to get a cup of coffee! :-)

.. note::

From now on, the unisson.co directory will be called the project root (or PROJECT_ROOT).

Populating the Database

Rename site_settings.py.example in site_settings.py

Then you need to initialize your database with these commands::

python manage.py syncdb --all
python manage.py migrate --fake
python manage.py check_permissions

Django will prompt for a user creation, this is always a good idea to say yes::

 You just installed Django's auth system, which means you don't have any superusers defined.
 Would you like to create one now? (yes/no): **yes**

Rename wsgi.py.example in wsgi.py

Now, run the server::

python manage.py runserver

(optionnal) You could also configure a database server on PostGreSQL_. It is recommended for large website.
