Build Status Code Health

A student representatives website. This is currently work in progress - please wait for basic functionality until the launch happened.


To be able to contribute to 1327, one needs to get the source code with all dependencies. Please note, that submodules for bootstrap, font-awesome, bootstrap-markdown and various puppet modules are in use:

git clone
cd 1327
git submodule update --init

Freshly created code needs to be tested - besides our use of unit tests, linting and continous integration, it is possible to run the application in a non-production environment using Vagrant or a Virtual Environment.


One can simply set up an execution environment using vagrant:

vagrant up --provision

At that point, one created a vagrant box, running a PostgreSQL database server, Apache web server and the Django application. The contents are available on the default port 8000, which allows one to access the website at http://localhost:8000. To create a new superuser for the application, execute vagrant ssh in the project directory and trigger the django user management system:

./ createsuperuser --username=root

Virtual Environment

Another way of executing this django application is the use of a virtual python environment. This way bypasses the needs for a virtual machine and simplifies the life with multiple python versions installed:

virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 env
source env/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install -r requirements-test.txt
python migrate
python createsuperuser --username=root
python runserver
