How to set up development environment

Set up

(Ideally you should only have to do this once)

  1. Install python 3.5

  2. Install postgreSQL

  3. Set up a database and database user

    Use pgAdmin to create a new database and new user, then give the user full access to the database.

  4. Clone this repository

    git clone

  5. Open terminal/cmd and cd into cloned directory

    cd htxaarhuslan

  6. Install required dependencies

    pip install -r requirements.txt

  7. Copy the file .env.base and rename the copied file to .env

    cp .env.base .env

  8. Fill out configuration in the newly created .env file

    You can get a recaptcha key from Google, or just give it an empty string, but then you can't create users via the form on site (do it via the admin site instead).

  9. Run database migrations (also always do this if you've pulled new changes from the repository)

    python migrate

Run server

(Do this everytime you want to run the local dev server)

  1. Optionally run a local mail server by running (in another terminal/cmd)

    python -m smtpd -n -c DebuggingServer localhost:1025

  2. You should now be able to run the development server

    python runserver

You can’t perform that action at this time.
