Development setup

Install requirements

Install PostgreSQL for your OS.

Create a virtual environment with Python 3.6+.

Run the following to install requirements for the project.

pip install -r requirements.txt

Set up database

Create a local database with default settings. Update settings file with database credentials if needed.


Load fixtures

Flatpages and email templates are stored in the fixtures folder. Load these:

python loaddata fixtures/*.json

Send mail (optional)

Postoffice is the mail backend in this project. All emails are queued and not sent until you run this command:

python send_queued_mail

The following environment variables must be set and you must be on eduroam or use VPN to NTNU.

Re-create email templates

Email templates are twofold: A HTML template and a simple text template with no styling. These must be loaded into the database before use. This is done by running:

python import_emails

This requires MJML to be installed.


Export models to json

python dumpdata --natural-foreign --exclude contenttypes app.model app2.model > my_dump.json

Production environment

Edit the .env file to suit your needs

docker-compose up -d --build

Update production

git stash && git pull --rebase && git pop && docker-compose restart

Run this in the terminal


Add packages to requirements

We use pip-tools to make our requirement files easy to understand. To add a new package to the project you need to update the file with the package and then run the line below to update the requirements.txt that is used when setting up the project.

pip-compile > requirements.txt

Likewise with any additional production requirements.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
