ReportBro Server (Tornado)

This is a simple Python webserver using Tornado to generate reports with ReportBro.

You can use this webserver as a starting point if you have no existing Python application and only need a report server. You can add your own methods to this script where you query application data for a specific report and directly return the generated report. Instead of the in-memory sqlite db you need to connect to your application database.

In case you already have a Python web application it is recommended to directly integrate ReportBro into your existing app. Have look at the demo apps available for Django, Flask and web2py.

All Instructions in this file are for a Linux/Mac shell but the commands should be easy to adapt for Windows.

Installation

Clone the git repository and change into the created directory:

$ git clone https://github.com/jobsta/reportbro-server-tornado.git
$ cd reportbro-server-tornado

Create a virtual environment called env:

$ python3 -m venv env

Activate the virtual environment:

$ . env/bin/activate

Install all required dependencies:

$ pip install reportbro-lib SQLAlchemy tornado

Configuration

You can change the constants SERVER_PORT, SERVER_PATH, MAX_CACHE_SIZE at the beginning of the script.

Run Server

Activate the virtual environment (if not already active):

$ . env/bin/activate

Start the ReportBro server:

$ python reportbro_server.py

Now your server is running and report requests can be sent to: http://127.0.0.1:8000/reportbro/report/run

Python Coding Style

The PEP 8 (Python Enhancement Proposal) standard is used which is the de-facto code style guide for Python. An easy-to-read version of PEP 8 can be found at https://pep8.org/
