Kitsune is the platform that powers SuMo (support.mozilla.org)

To get Kitsune running locally all you really need is to have Docker installed, and follow the following steps.
Fork this repository & clone it to your local machine.
git clone https://github.com/mozilla/kitsune.git
Pull base Kitsune Docker images, create your database, and install node and bower packages.
This will produce a lot of output (mostly warnings at present). When you see the following the server will be ready:
web_1 | Starting development server at http://0.0.0.0:8000/ web_1 | Quit the server with CONTROL-C.
Another way you might choose to run the app (step 3 above) is by getting a shell in the container and then manually running the Django dev server from there. This should make frequent restarts of the server a lot faster and easier if you need to do that:
make runshell bin/run-dev.sh
The end result of this method should be the same as using
make run, but will potentially aid in debugging
and act much more like developing without Docker as you may be used to. You should use
make runshell here
make shell as the latter does not bind port 8000 which you need to be able to load the site.
make help to see other helpful commands.
After the above you can do some optional steps if you want to use the admin:
Enable the admin control panel
echo "ENABLE_ADMIN=True" >> .env
Create a superuser
docker-compose exec web ./manage.py createsuperuser
Create some data
docker-compose exec web ./manage.py generatedata
Update product details
docker-compose exec web ./manage.py update_product_details

First, make sure you have run the "Create some data" step above.
- Enter the web container:
docker-compose exec web bash
- Build the indicies:
./manage.py esreindex(You may need to pass the
