A Code for Life repository

  • Ocado Technology's Code for Life initiative has been developed to inspire the next generation of computer scientists and to help teachers deliver the computing curriculum.
  • This repository hosts the source code of the main website: the portal for the Code For Life initiative, the registration/log in, the teachers' dashboards, the teaching materials, etc
  • The other repos for Code For Life:

Running Locally

  • Clone the repo. Fork it first if you want to contribute, or make sure you work on separate branches.

  • Install prerequisites. E.g. on Ubuntu / Linux Mint:

    • sudo apt-get install git
    • sudo apt-get install python-dev
    • sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev
  • Make and activate a virtualenv (We recommend pipenv)

    • On Mac, run brew install pipenv using the brew package manager. Then run pipenv install followed by pipenv shell.
    • On Linux, follow the instructions here to install pipenv. Then run pipenv install followed by pipenv shell.
    • create settings file under example_project/example_project/ with EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend'
  • ./run - This will:

    • sync the database
    • collect the static files
    • run the server
  • Once you see Quit the server with CONTROL-C, you can open the portal in your browser at localhost:8000.

  • To setup test dependencies and run tests, you can use python test

  • If you have problems seeing the portal on machines with different locale (e.g. Polish), check the terminal for errors mentioning ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8. If you see them, you need to have environment variables LANG and LC_ALL both set to en_US.UTF-8.

    • Either export them in your .bashrc or .bash_profile
    • or restart the portal with command LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 ./run.

Common Problems

Unapplied migrations on first run

It may be that some migrations were changed and you have .pyc files from the old ones. Try removing all .pyc migrations by running rm migrations/*.pyc from the repository.
