Impacts World 2017

This Django and Wagtail CMS based repository powers the Impacts World 2017 website.

The Impacts World 2017 is the leading international conference covering the diversity and depth of climate-impacts research today. IW2017 follows on from the inaugural Impacts World 2013, held in Potsdam, Germany, which brought together impacts researchers and stakeholders from across the spectrum of impacted sectors, initiating an era of truly integrated cross-sectoral climate-impacts research.

Getting started

This project is based on the "Two Scoops of Django" best practices project template. The installation assumes a working PostgreSQL (with table creation rights) database and python 3.x environment. To use this project follow these steps:

Create your working environment

You have several options in setting up your working environment. We recommend using virtualenv to separate the dependencies of your project from your system's python environment. If on Linux or Mac OS X, you can also use virtualenvwrapper to help manage multiple virtualenvs across different projects.

Populate .env with your environment variables

Some of these services rely on environment variables set by you. There is an env.example file in the root directory of this project as a starting point. Add your own variables to the file and rename it to .env. This file won’t be tracked by git by default so you’ll have to make sure to use some other mechanism to copy your secret if you are relying solely on git.

Install dependencies

Depending on where you are installing dependencies:

In development:

$ pip install -r requirements/local.txt

For production:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt


Run any migrations required:

python migrate

Running the application

In the root project folder, run:

python runserver
