Market to Market Chicago

Installation (Debian-based systems)

Make sure python3 and pip3 are installed on your system and install virtualenv.

$ sudo apt install -y python3 python3-pip && pip3 install virtualenv

virtualenv's default installation directory is $HOME/.local/bin. Add it to your PATH if it is not already there.

$ echo "export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.local/bin" >> ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc

In the project's root directory, run the following to create a new virtual environment.

$ virtualenv -p python3 .env

Activate the newly created environment.

$ source env/bin/activate

At any point within the virtual environment, run deactivate to deactivate.

(env) $ deactivate

Go back to the virtual environment and install project dependencies.

(env) $ pip install -r requirements.txt

Generate a secret key and pipe the output to a file. Change the newly created file's permissions to rw-------, or 0600. Note that you will need to add the file to .gitignore if you keep it somewhere other than $BASE_DIR/auth. Also, your directory structure will likely differ from the one used by SECRET_KEY_FILE in mtm/settings.py. Change the path to secret.txt in SECRET_KEY_FILE in mtm/settings.py to match your system's directory structure.

$ mkdir auth
$ python bin/generate_secret_key.py > auth/secret.txt
$ sudo chmod 0600 auth/secret.txt

Alternatively, export it as an environment variable and edit mtm/settings.py to read the string that way.

$ export SECRET_KEY=$(python bin/generate_secret_key.py)

In settings.py, change

HOME = os.environ.get('HOME')
SECRET_KEY_FILE = '%s/mtm/auth/secret.txt' % HOME
with open(SECRET_KEY_FILE, 'r', encoding='utf8') as f:
    content = f.readline()
SECRET_KEY = content

to

SECRET_KEY = os.environ.get('SECRET_KEY')

No method is more secure than the other as an attacker can access the key both ways if they gain access to the system running the project.

Make and apply migrations.

(env) $ python manage.py makemigrations
(env) $ python manage.py migrate
