README

Get the Code:
============

Fork code repository:
Browse to http://github.com/hasadna/Open-Knesset
and click Fork
Browse to your Open-Knesset fork and click the SSH button. 
Copy the SSH address and run the following command (widows users - use git bash)
$ git clone paste_the_ssh_address_here.git


Installation:
=============

$ python bootstrap.py
$ bin/buildout
$ bin/test
$ bin/django syncdb --migrate     # do not create a superuser account
$ bin/django loaddata dev
$ bin/django createsuperuser      # to create your superuser account
$ bin/django runserver
# create your local setting file to store a bunch of things that you do NOT want to push to everyone
# NOTE: NEVER push settings.py with local changes!
$ vi src/knesset/local_settings.py 
$ DATABASE_NAME = '<your-local-path>dev.db'  # Or path to database file if using sqlite3.

=======
*Some of the mirrors are flaky so you might need to run the buildout several times until all downloads succeed*

NOTES
=====

- currently using MySQL as the database engine is not supported
- on bin/buildout, problems with getting distribution for 'PIL' can be fixed 
  by installing the python-dev package

Update - get your branch updated with the changes done by others
======

$ cd Open-Knesset 
$ git pull git://github.com/hasadna/Open-Knesset.git master
$ bin/buildout                     # only needed if the file buildout.cfg was changed; but can't hurt you if you run it every time.
$ bin/django syncdb --migrate      # do not create a superuser account
$ bin/test
$ bin/django runserver

# if you get the add_persons_aliases alert try this:
$ bin/django migrate --fake persons 0001

Updating the translation strings:
================================
$ cd src/knesset
$ ../../bin/django makemessages -a -e txt,html
<edit src/knesset/locale/he/LC_MESSAGES/django.po, find your strings and change it to the correct translation>
$ ../../bin/django compilemessages

Adding a field to existing model
================================

# add the field you want to model sample_model
# see our naming conventions for migrations: under the directory "migrations" under the model's folder - notice the number is added automatically
# so 0003_add_members_blog is actually add_members_blog
$ bin/django schemamigration knesset.sample_model --auto naming_convention_change_name
$ bin/django syncdb --migrate
