SuperBook

SuperBook is a social network for superheroes built with Python using the Django Web Framework. This is an example project accompanying the book "Django Design Patterns and Best Practices" by Arun Ravindran.

Local Installation

Git clone to a local directory:

git clone https://github.com/DjangoPatternsBook/superbook2.git

Install pipenv system-wide or locally but outside a virtualenv. Alternatively, follow these commands:

$ pip install -U pip
$ pip install pipenv

Now go to the project directory and install the dependencies:

$ cd superbook2
$ pipenv install --dev

Now you need to enter the pipenv shell:

$ pipenv shell

Run the project:

$ cd src
$ python manage.py migrate
$ python manage.py loaddata initial-fixture.json
$ python manage.py runserver

Open your browser and visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/ (or the URL shown in the last command). If you performed loaddata, then you can login using the username: "admin" and password: "admin".

Deployment to Heroku

Enter project root and run the following commands:

$ heroku create superbook-demo
$ heroku addons:create heroku-postgresql:hobby-dev
$ heroku config:set DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=superbook.settings.production
