Kolibri Synchronizer

It’s an application used fetch the data from kolibri central server and transformed this data into readable format for user. The data synchronizer should synchronize the relevant data (which is needed for the visualization system) from the Kolibri database to the Nalanda database as well as perform any additional transformation. Using kolibri synchronizer we transfrorm data into some useful metrics, which helps the program manager gain more insight from the data.

Steps to setup kolibri synchronizer:

  1. Install database. Dont do it if database is installed already.

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install -y mysql-server

  2. Create password:******, user:root

    sudo mysql_secure_installation

  3. Check the status of the running system

    systemctl status mysql.service

  4. Install git

    sudo apt-get install git

  5. Create directory structure if not present already

    mkdir Nalanda cd Nalanda/

  6. Copy code using git clone

    git clone

    cd Kolibri-ETL/Schema/

  7. Create staging db by running following command

    mysql -u root -p<your mysql passowrd> --local-infile=1 < create_staging.sql

  8. Create nalanda db by running following command

    mysql -u root -p<your mysql password> --local-infile=1 < create_nalanda_latest.sql

  9. Install dependencies

    sudo apt install python3-pip

    virtualenv -p python3 ENV

  10. Create virtual environment

    cd Kolibri-ETL/

    source ENV/bin/activate

  11. Install mysqlclient

    sudo apt-get install -y python-dev libmysqlclient-dev

    sudo apt-get install python3-dev

  12. Install dependencies

    pip3 install -r requirements.txt

  13. Steps for running schedular

    1.Go to Code folder to run folllowing commands
