User management is a pain. Apps shouldn't have their own user management code if it can be centrally managed. Lastuser does it for HasGeek. This open source code release is intended to help you examine our code, work with our APIs, and lend a helping hand where needed.
Lastuser requires PostgreSQL and Python 2.7. A virtualenv is strongly recommended. Instructions:
$ git clone https://github.com/hasgeek/lastuser $ cd lastuser $ pip install -r requirements.txt $ createdb lastuser $ cp instance/settings-sample.py instance/development.py
Edit to customize
instance/development.py as needed, then populate the database:
$ python manage.py createdb
You should now be able to run the development server, accessible at
$ python runserver.py
To use Lastuser effectively, you will need to create an
/etc/hosts entry pointing to localhost, for Lastuser and any client apps you may need:
127.0.0.1 lastuser.mymachine.local 127.0.0.1 clientapp.mymachine.local
Before you run the tests:
$ pip install -r test_requirements.txt $ cp secrets.test.sample secrets.test
secrets.test contains API keys for various external services Lastuser works with. Note that Lastuser's functional tests are incomplete at this time.
Next, create a test database. Do not use your development database for this as the test database is wiped after each run of the test suite:
$ createdb lastuser_test_app
Run the tests from the root directory of the project:
