README.md

sayit.mysociety.org

This repository contains a Django project that uses the SayIt component to provide a hosting service for transcripts, presenting them in a modern, searchable format.

Examples of transcripts hosted by mySociety's deployment of this hosting project:

SayIt is a Poplus component by mySociety. It is a Django application that can be included in your own Django project, or run standalone. If you want to host your own transcripts in SayIt, please see the Sayit repository; this repository is a remote hosting service on top of SayIt, similar to wordpress.com compared with wordpress.org.

Installation

You will need to have the following installed:

There is a list of the required Debian/Ubuntu packages in conf/packages.

Clone the repository:

mkdir sayit.mysociety.org
cd sayit.mysociety.org
git clone https://github.com/mysociety/sayit.mysociety.org

Create a PostgreSQL database and user:

sudo -u postgres psql
postgres=# CREATE USER sayit WITH password 'sayit';
CREATE ROLE
postgres=# CREATE DATABASE sayit WITH OWNER sayit;
CREATE DATABASE

You can run the bootstrap script directly, it will set up a virtualenv for you, or set up/activate your own virtualenv first if you prefer:

script/bootstraop

Alter the settings to match your setup:

cp conf/general.yml-example conf/general.yml

Set up the database, static files and language .mo files:

script/update

The development server should now run fine:

script/server

You'll want to use http://127.0.0.1.xip.io:8000/ and instances can be seen at e.g. http://default.127.0.0.1.xip.io:8000/
