OSMQA

An attempt to rewrite osmqa (http://qualitystreetmap.org/osmqa) with a different User Interface and a different server implementation.

This implementation is based on CouchDB, Pyramid, jQuery, and OpenLayers.

Install CouchDB

To install CouchDB the easiest is to rely on your operating system's package management tool. Installing from source is also an option (http://couchdb.apache.org/downloads.html).

A recent version (> 0.11) may be required.

Create Database

To create the database execute the create_db.py script:

$ python create_db.py

Install OSMQA

Installing OSMQA in a Virtual Python environment is recommended.

To create a virtual Python environment:

$ cd OSMQA
$ wget http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/v/virtualenv/virtualenv-1.5.1.tar.gz
$ tar xvzf virtualenv-1.5.1.tar.gz
$ python virtualenv-1.5.1/virtualenv.py --distribute --no-site-packages env

To install OSMQA from source (the only option at this point) in the virtual Python environment execute the setup.py script:

$ env/bin/python setup.py install

Run OSMQA

To run OSMQA the easiest is to use paster serve:

$ env/bin/paster serve development.ini

You can also run it under mod_wsgi in apache. To do that, modify the osmqa.wsgi file to match the path where you installed OSMQA. Then modify and add the following to your apache configuration

WSGIPassAuthorization On
WSGIDaemonProcess pyramid user=www-data group=www-data processes=1 \
   threads=4 \
   python-path=/path/to/OSMQA/env/lib/python2.6/site-packages
WSGIScriptAlias /osmqa /path/to/OSMQA/osmqa.wsgi

<Directory /path/to/OSMQA>
  WSGIProcessGroup pyramid
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
</Directory>
