Lumbergh is the Mozilla careers website. It is a playdoh-based site that displays open jobs.


These instructions assume you have git, python, and pip installed. If you don't have pip installed, you can install it with easy_install pip.

  1. Start by getting the source:

    $ git clone --recursive
    $ cd lumbergh

    Note you may want to fork and clone the repo as described in the github docs if you are doing active development.

  2. Create a virtualenv for Lumbergh. Skip the first step if you already have virtualenv installed.

    $ pip install virtualenv
    $ virtualenv venv
    $ source venv/bin/activate
  3. Install the compiled requirements:

    $ pip install -r requirements/compiled.txt
  4. Set up a local MySQL database. The MySQL Installation Documentation explains how to do this. Make sure your DB is utf8.

  5. Configure your local settings by copying careers/settings/ to careers/settings/ and customizing the settings in it:

    $ cp settings/ settings/

    The file is commented to explain what each setting does and how to customize them.

    If you wish to have jobs appear locally make sure JOBVITE_URI is set.

  6. Initialize your database structure:

    $ python syncdb
    $ python migrate

Running the Development Server

You can launch the development server like so:

$ python runserver

Updating Jobs

You can update jobs so they appear locally by running:

$ python syncjobvite
