Part of edX code.

Notifier build-status coverage-status

This is a django application for edX platform notifications.

It currently sends daily digests of new content to subscribed forums users, with a goal of eventually supporting real-time and batched notifications of various types of content across various channels (e.g. SMS).

Getting Started

To run tests: python test notifier

To start the celery worker: python celery worker

To start the scheduler (triggers forums digest notifications on a regular interval): python scheduler

To manually trigger the nightly forums digest batch job, or to perform other diagnostics (use --help to see options): python forums_digest

Internationalization and Localization

edX uses Transifex to host translations. To use the Transifex client, be sure it is installed (pip install -r requirements.txt will do this for you), and follow the instructions here to set up your .transifexrc file.

Django relies on GNU's gettext utilities, which must be installed on your system (packages are available via brew on OS X and apt-get on Ubuntu Linux) and on the PATH of the shell from which you run the commands below.

To extract and upload translatable strings: python makemessages -l en; tx push -s

To download and compile a translation: tx pull -l <locale>; python compilemessages, where <locale> is the locale name for the desired language.

To run the notifier in a language other than English, set the NOTIFIER_LANGUAGE environment variable to the language code for the desired language.
