Getting Started
Get Python2.6 or Python2.7 (Whatever comes bundled with your system is
preferred, but otherwise 2.7 is better)
Afterwards, you need to get pip and virtualenv (+virtualenvwrapper)
If you want the latest pip+virtualenv
Use your local package manager to get easy_install (usually packagename
is python-setuptools).
$> easy_install pip
... stuff happens
$> pip install virtualenvwrapper
If you're lazy and want the fast way
Find python-pip and python-virtualenv and pip install virtualenvwrapper
Setting Up Dev Environment
The following will set up a virtualenv named 'hicap'. Feel free to name
it whatever you want.
$> mkvirtualenv hicap
$> pip install -r requirements.txt
The next time you return to your machine just type:
$> workon hicap
The requirements file is in the root of the repo. It contains a list
of all packages for pip to install. You might need to run the pip
install later on when further changes introduce new dependencies.
Local Database
The local settings uses the sqlite backend. One will be created when you do
a syncdb:
$> python syncdb
If you want to start from scratch (modified a model?), just delete the sqlite3
file and do a syncdb again. Later on we'll make a data dump to fill in db
data, or actually do proper migrations (using South).
Running Dev Server
Make sure you're in your virtualenv
$> python runserver
You can also be all 'runserver' to pick your IP and ports.
Yeah, it's that simple.
