Live Todo List

Todo list with live updates, based on TodoMVC.

Server is a Django app. Frontend uses React and LiveResource. Updates are sent over Fanout Cloud or Pushpin.

There is a public instance available here:

Server setup

Install dependencies:

virtualenv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt

Redis is used for storage. Either install a Redis server locally, or set REDIS_HOST and REDIS_PORT environment variables to use an external server.

Running with Fanout Cloud

Create a .env file containing GRIP_URL:


Be sure to replace {realm-id} and {realm-key} with the values from the Fanout control panel.

In a separate shell, run ngrok for local tunneling:

ngrok http 8000

In the Fanout control panel, set the ngrok host/port as the Origin Server.

Run a local instance of the project:

python runserver

Requests made to Fanout Cloud should be routed through ngrok to the local instance. Try a test call with curl:

curl https://{realm-id}

Next you need to set up the frontend. See Frontend setup.

Running with Pushpin

Create a .env file containing GRIP_URL:


Run Pushpin:

pushpin --route="* localhost:8000"

Run the server:

python runserver

Next you need to set up the frontend. See Frontend setup.

Frontend setup

Build the frontend code:

cd client
npm install

Edit js/src/Constants.js and change the API_ENDPOINT_BASE to point to the location of the server. For Fanout Cloud, that would be something like https://{realm-id} . For Pushpin that would be something like http://localhost:7999 .

Use a webserver such as Apache or Nginx to serve the client directory.

Then open up two browser windows to the served client location. This will load the website and frontend JavaScript code which will then connect to the Django server to read/write todo items.
