Commands related to the site itself

Fill the database with users' location

To show locations on the map at /map/ (

python latlong

Extra command line arguments:

  • reload will force reload all the locations in the database, even the ones already in. This is not recommended since OpenStreetMap has service restrictions.
Delete a user

Will delete a user, their accounts, the owned cards of their accounts, their activities, their event participations, and everything else associated with that user.

python deleteuser
Generate cached data to use in the website
Database cache
python update_cached_objects
  • Update total number of cards owner and people who have the card in their wishlist inside each card object
  • Update ranking positions of each card compared to each others (best of each attribute)
Settings cache
python generate_settings
  • Total donators, current contests, ages of users, cards statistics
In production, should be in a crontab together:
python update_cached_objects && python generate_settings
Get the list of usernames for a given email address
python getusername
Add staff permission to a user
python add_permission db0 VERIFICATION_1
Revoke staff permission of a user
python revoke_permission db0 VERIFICATION_1
Change a user's password
python changepassword db0

Will check if a transfer code is stored for that user and will not allow you to change it if there's at least one.

If you still wish to change the password, add a force argument after the username. The transfer codes saved will be deleted.

Generate release dates
python generate_release_dates

Promo cards don't have a release date in the wiki, so this script fills the missing release date by assuming it's the same than the previous card that has a release date.

Use the images of the songs & cards from the production website

If what you plan to do with the website doesn't require working with images, you can tell your instance to use the URLs from the production website. This way, you can have a good looking testing environment without having to download all the images (which takes hours).

To do so, create a local settings file and add IMAGES_HOSTING_PATH = '', then run this script to tell your database that you have the images:

python quickupdate
