Tracker for Lost in the Darkness



I recommend using virtualenv, but nothing prevents you installing it into the root system


When installing this package, it will build the MySQL and Postgres clients. So you'll need the necessary headers, plus gcc on your machine.

For Ubuntu, run the following:

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev libpq-dev python-dev \

Installation procedure

  • Download the latest package from I recommend using the latest tagged version, but if you want bleeding edge, you may also download the "master" branch.

  • untar the package:

    tar xzf exhuma-lost-tracker-<version number+hash>.tar.gz
  • enter the folder:

    cd exhuma-lost-tracker-<version number+hash>

When not using virtualenv, you may skip this section


If you don't have virtualenv, run the following:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools && easy_install virtualenv

  • create a virtualenv:

    virtualenv --no-site-packages /path/to/your/env
  • activate the environment:

    source /path/to/your/env/bin/activate

Without virtualenv

  • run the installer:

    python install

Database initialisation

To initialise the database run the following commands:

# export MAMERWISELEN_LOST_TRACKER_PATH="/path/which/contains/app.ini"
# ./env/bin/alembic upgrade head


The environment variable should point to the path containing app.ini. Not the filename itself!


Configuration is handled using ini style config files. An example file is given in app.ini.dist.

The file is looked up using config_resolver_.
