Run the invite-generation script.
generate_invites.py takes two vars: number of invites to generate, and type of invites to generate. invite-types are 't' for translator, or 'c' for contributor.
for 5 translator invites, run
manage.py generate_invites 5 t
for 10 contributor invites, run
manage.py generate_invites 10 c
The app uses Django's [user account management][django-users] commands:
./manage.py createsuperuser # to create a new moderator ./manage.py changepassword bob # to change bob's password # Deleting users is currently only possible through the database.
For production environments, uncomment the following in settings:
# CACHE_BACKEND = 'caching.backends.memcached://localhost:11211?timeout=500' # SESSION_COOKIE_SECURE = True # SESSION_COOKIE_HTTPONLY = True
Also make sure your webserver serves SVG files with the right MIME type. In Apache, do this:
AddType image/svg+xml svg
ffdemo/locale directory is kept in SVN. After checking out from git,
you want to separately check out that dir like this:
cd ffdemo svn checkout http://svn.mozilla.org/projects/l10n-misc/trunk/markup/locale
Markup uses the tower library for string extraction. To extract strings from template files, run something like:
./manage.py extract ./manage.py verbatimize --rename ./manage.py merge
For more information, consult the tower docs.
To compile .po files into .mo, run:
cd locale ./compile-mo.sh .
