Deploying the app
An opinionated guide to deploy this app to Heroku can be found at https://github.com/codegram/decidim-deploy-heroku.
Setting up the application
You will need to do some steps before having the app working properly once you've deployed it:
- Open a Rails console in the server:
bundle exec rails console
- Create a System Admin user:
user = Decidim::System::Admin.new(email: <email>, password: <password>, password_confirmation: <password>) user.save!
<your app url>/systemand login with your system admin credentials
- Create a new organization. Check the locales you want to use for that organization, and select a default locale.
- Set the correct default host for the organization, otherwise the app will not work properly. Note that you need to include any subdomain you might be using.
- Fill the rest of the form and submit it.
You're good to go!
rake decidim:generate_external_test_app to generate a dummy application to test both the application and the modules.
Require missing factories in
require "rails_helper" to your specs and execute them from the root directory, i.e.:
The necessary credentials are:
SODA_DOMAIN: "soda.demo.socrata.com" SODA_USERNAME: "email@example.com" SODA_PASSWORD: "password" SODA_APP_TOKEN: "app_token" SODA_DATASET_IDENTIFIER: "dataset_identifier"
There are two rake tasks available to interact with this data:
rake open_data:participatory_processes:exportto export the data to a CSV file
rake open_data:participatory_processes:publish_to_socratato update the remote Socrata dataset
The logic of these rake tasks has been extracted to a
ParticipatoryProcessSerializer, located at
decidim-process-extended/app/serializers/decidim/participatory_processes, is the
Class responsible for transforming the objects into data for the Socrata dataset.
