DBaaS requires the following:

  • python >= 2.7.5
  • virtualenv >= 1.7.2
  • virtualenvwrapper >= 3.5
  • mysql server and client, version 5.5.x
  • mongo client = 2.4 (used by the clone feature)
  • redis (broker for async tasks with celery)
  • and all packages in requirements.txt file (there is a shortcut to install them)

Setup docker and docker-compose(optional)

Setup your local environment

mkvirtualenv dbaas
workon dbaas

Install the required python packages.

make pip

Install redis and start celery

make run_celery

Create the tables structure (see the next item)


DBaaS uses south to maintain the migrations up-to-date. However, you can just run syncdb to create the table structures. There is a shortcut to help you with that, including some minimum operational data on DB.

make reset_data

make pip && make test

Running all test with docker( To run this the and docker-compose must be avaliable)

make run_celery
