This is the Django web project which runs behinds the scenes of coworking spaces.

Most of the action is in the staff application, where you'll find a member tracking and billing system.


  • Python (Probably comes with your system otherwise it can be downloaded from their website.)
  • Virtualenv (install with pip virtualenv)
  • XCode if you are on Mac OS X
  • Postgresql
  • Does not play nice with SQLite

Handy Installation Instructions

Install the required systems

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql postgresql-server-dev-all python-pip python-dev virtualenv libffi-dev git

Setup the database

sudo su postgres -c "createuser -s $(whoami)"
createdb nadinedb

Create a virtual environment for the python project

virtualenv nadine
cd nadine
source bin/activate

Download the nadine source code from github

git clone
cd nadine

Install all the requirments

pip install -r requirements.txt

Run these scripts to setup nadine, install the database, and create your admin user

./ setup
./ migrate
./ createsuperuser

At this point you can run the server

./ runserver
Visit your installation of Nadine at

Running the scheduler

In order to repeatedly execute tasks like checking and sending email, run this command:

./ celeryd -B

You will need to run that command as a long lived process. On linux and other unices, use something like the nohup command.

Interlink (mailing lists) notes:

In the interest of shipping more quickly, we have made certain assumptions about the interlink mailing lists which may or may not suit everyone's needs.

  • the reply-to address for mail from a list is the original sender, not the entire list
  • attachments are neither saved nor sent to the list, but a removal note is appended to the message
  • incoming messages are parsed for a single text message and a single html message (not multiple MIME messages)
  • you can set the frequency of mail fetching by changing the value in CELERYBEAT_SCHEDULE in your or
  • loops and bounces are silently dropped
  • any email sent to a list which is not in a subscriber's user or membership record is moderated
  • the sender of a message receives a copy of the message like any other subscriber
