wafer

Travis CI build status Wafer documentation Translation status

A wafer-thin web application for running small conferences. Built using Django.

Licensed under the ISC License.

Documentation

Available on readthedocs.org.

Supported Django versions

Wafer supports Django 2+ and Django 3.0.

Installation

  1. wafer can be installed either from pypi (pip install wafer) or from the github repository.

  2. If installing from github, pip install -r requirements.txt should install all the required python and django dependencies.

  3. Wafer uses npm to manage front-end dependencies

    • Make sure you have a recent version of Node.js installed that includes npm.
    • Run npm install to install all dependencies, which also copies them to wafer/static/vendor.
  4. Install the wafer applications manage.py migrate

  5. If you don't have one yet, create a superuser with manage.py createsuperuser.

  6. Examine the settings.py file and create a localsettings.py file overriding the defaults as required.

    STATIC_FILES, WAFER_MENUS, MARKITUP_FILTER, WAFER_TALKS_OPEN, WAFER_REGISTRATION_OPEN and WAFER_PUBLIC_ATTENDEE_LIST will probably need to be overridden.

    If you add extensions to MARKITUP_FILTER, be sure to install the appropriate python packages as well.

  7. Wafer uses the Django caching infrastructure in several places, so the cache table needs to be created using manage.py createcachetable.

  8. Create the default 'Page Editors' and 'Talk Mentors' groups using manage.py wafer_add_default_groups.

  9. Log in and configure the Site:

    • The domain will be used as the base for e-mails sent during registration.
    • The name will be the conference's name.
  10. Have a fun conference.
