Transcript Hero description
Run the application:
And open it in the browser at http://127.0.0.1:5000/
This is built to be used with Python 3. Update
Makefile to switch to Python 2 if needed.
Some Flask dependencies are compiled during installation, so
gcc and Python header files need to be present.
For example, on Ubuntu:
apt install build-essential python3-dev
Development environment and release process
create virtualenv with Flask and Transcript Hero installed into it (latter is installed in develop mode which allows modifying source code directly without a need to re-install the app):
run development server in debug mode:
make run; Flask will restart if source code is modified
make test(see also: Testing Flask Applications)
create source distribution:
make sdist(will run tests first)
to remove virtualenv and built distributions:
to add more python dependencies: add to
to modify configuration in development environment: edit file
settings.cfg; this is a local configuration file and it is ignored by Git - make sure to put a proper configuration file to a production environment when deploying
If you are interested in an out-of-the-box deployment automation, check out accompanying
Or, check out Deploying with Fabric on one of the possible ways to automate the deployment.
In either case, generally the idea is to build a package (
make sdist), deliver it to a server (
install it (
pip install transcript_hero.tar.gz), ensure that configuration file exists and
TRANSCRIPT_HERO_SETTINGS environment variable points to it, ensure that user has access to the
working directory to create and write log files in it, and finally run a
WSGI container with the application.
And, most likely, it will also run behind a
