Currency Predictor is a Django web application that shows the history of prices for different cryptocurrencies and also predicts their prices in the near future.
The instructions below will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. To get started, clone the repository on a folder that you want.
The major things that you will need to run this application are Python3 and pip3
$ sudo apt-get install python3 $ sudo apt-get install python3-pip
After you get the python3 and the pip3 installed and working, you will need to install the requirements to run your project.
For that purpose, go to the root directory of the repository and run the following command:
$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
Note: You might want to use a virtual environment for installing the python packages required for the project
$ sudo pip3 install virtualenv $ virtualenv currencypredictor $ source path/to/env/bin/activate
Running the tests
After you get the prerequisite packages installed in your virtualenv, you need to copy the contents of the .env.example file to a new .env file and make the changes accordingly. For development mode, make DEBUG=True
Then, run your django application from the root directory through the following command:
$ ./manage.py runserver
This will start a development server of Django in the localhost at port 8000. So, access your application at 127.0.0.1:8000
