Fanboi2

py ci

Board engine behind Fanboi Channel written in Python.

Installation

Fanboi2 requires the following packages to be installed.

After all packages are installed and started, you may now clone the application:

$ git clone https://github.com/forloopend/fanboi2.git fanboi2

Then setup the application:

$ cd fanboi2/
$ make prod

Configure .env (see the configuring section) and run:

$ make migrate
$ pipenv run fbctl serve

And you're done! Please visit http://localhost:6543/admin/ to perform initial configuration.

Configuring

Fanboi2 uses environment variable to configure the application. In case Pipenv is used, you can create a file name .env in the root directory of the project and Pipenv will happily read the file on pipenv run. Otherwise you may want to use something like Direnv.

Contributing

Fanboi2 is open to any contributors, whether you are learning Python or an expert. To contribute to Fanboi2, it is highly recommended to use Vagrant as it is currently replicating the production environment of Fanboi Channel and perform all the necessary setup steps for you. You can follow these steps to get the app running:

  1. Install Vagrant of your preferred platform.
  2. Install VirtualBox or other providers supported by Vagrant.
  3. Run vagrant up and read Getting Started while waiting.
  4. Run vagrant ssh to SSH into the development machine (remember to cd /vagrant).

In case you do not want to use Vagrant, you can install the dependencies from the installation section and run:

$ make develop
$ make devhook

You can then configure the application (see configuration section) and run the server:

$ make migrate
$ pipenv run honcho start -f Procfile.dev
