Apache Airavata Django Portal

Build Status

The Airavata Django Portal is a web interface to the Apache Airavata API implemented using the Django web framework. The intention is that the Airavata Django Portal can be used as is for a full featured web based science gateway but it can also be customized through various plugins to add more domain specific functionality as needed.

Getting Started

The following steps will help you quickly get started with running the Airavata Django Portal locally. This will allow you to try it out and can also be used as a development environment.

The Airavata Django Portal is developed with Python 3.6 but should also work with 3.4 and 3.5. You'll need one of these versions installed locally.

  1. Checkout this project and create a virtual environment.

    git clone https://github.com/apache/airavata-django-portal.git
    cd airavata-django-portal
    python3 -m venv venv
    source venv/bin/activate
    pip install -r requirements.txt
  2. Create a local settings file. Copy django_airavata/settings_local.py.sample to django_airavata/settings_local.py and edit the contents to match your Keycloak and Airavata server deployments.

  3. Run Django migrations

    python manage.py migrate
  4. Build the JavaScript sources. There are a few JavaScript packages in the source tree, colocated with the Django apps in which they are used. The build_js.sh script will build them all.

  5. Run the server

    python manage.py runserver
    • Note: if you want to use OpenID Connect authentication from the Django Portal when running it locally, you'll need to first set the following environment to allow OAuth over insecure HTTP:

  6. Point your browser to http://localhost:8000.
