Requirements

Docker Compose

Run

  • Clone or download this project from GitHub:
  • Copy docker/docker-compose.yml.example to docker/docker-compose.yml and edit it
    • Fill in a password at <DB_PASSWORD>
  • Copy config.py.example to config.py and edit it
    • Create a SECRET_KEY as per the instructions in the file
    • Fill in your CKAN URL and CKAN API key
    • Fill in the same <DB_PASSWORD> as used in docker/docker-compose.yml
    • Specify the name(s) of the election(s) and its corresponding CKAN draft and publish resource IDs
      • NOTE: Use the exact same <name of election> values in the 'verkiezingen' field in 'app/data/gemeenten.json'
    • Specify email related information in order for the application to send emails
  • Copy app/data/gemeenten.json.example to app/data/gemeenten.json and edit it
    • Fill in the email addresses of the gemeenten
    • Add the name(s) of the election(s) for each gemeenten in which it participates. NOTE: make sure that these names are exactly the same as the name(s) of the election(s) in app/config.py
  • Buy and download the most recent 'BAG Adressen - Uitgebreid - CSV' from https://geotoko.nl/datasets?rid=24b6070d-5a92-4109-8fcd-a1d7cc000801 (NB: from the moment that gemeenten start to update the stembureaus till election day you need to buy and download the latest monthly released version of this file)
    • download the 'bag-adressen-full-nl.csv' file into docker/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/
    • unzip bag-adressen-full-laatst.csv.zip
    • bag.sql will automatically load the data when docker starts for the first time; if you want to update the data later the you can simply go to the docker folder and run sudo ./update_bag.sh
      • Copy docker/update_bag.sh.example to docker/update_bag.sh and edit it
        • Fill in the same <DB_PASSWORD> as used in docker/docker-compose.yml
  • Production
    • Make sure to extract the latest MySQL backup in docker/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d if you want to import it: gunzip latest-mysqldump-daily.sql.gz
    • cd docker
    • sudo docker-compose up -d
    • Compile the assets, see the section below
    • The docker-compose up command above also loads the BAG data in MySQL, this can take more than 1 hour on a server (without SSD), so wait until waarismijnstemlokaal.nl/ loads without errors before continuing with the commands below
    • NOT NEEDED AS THIS DATA IS NOT UP TO DATE: Get buurt data: sudo docker exec -it stm_app_1 /opt/stm/bin/get_address_data.sh
    • Set up daily backups for MySQL and CKAN
      • Copy docker/backup.sh.example to docker/backup.sh and edit it
        • MySQL: Fill in the same <DB_PASSWORD> as used in docker/docker-compose.yml
        • CKAN: Copy the CKAN backup command for each CKAN (concept) resource you want to backup and fill in the <RESOURCE_ID>
      • To run manually use sudo ./backup.sh
      • To set a daily cronjob at 03:46
        • sudo crontab -e and add the following line (change the path below to your stembureaus/docker directory path)
        • 46 3 * * * (cd <PATH_TO_stembureaus/docker> && sudo ./backup.sh)
      • The resulting SQL backup files are saved in docker/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d and the CKAN exports in exports
  • Development; Flask debug will be turned on which automatically reloads any changes made to Flask files so you don't have to restart the whole application manually
    • Make sure to extract the latest MySQL backup in docker/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d if you want to import it: gunzip latest-mysqldump-daily.sql.gz
    • cd docker
    • docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml up -d
    • Compile the assets, see the section below
    • If you ran the docker-compose up command above for the first time or if you removed the stm_stm-mysql-volume then the BAG data will be loaded in MySQL, this can take something like 10 minutes (with an SSD), so wait until waarismijnstemlokaal.nl/ loads without errors before continuing with the commands below
    • NOT NEEDED AS THIS DATA IS NOT UP TO DATE: Get buurt data: sudo docker exec -it stm_app_1 /opt/stm/bin/get_address_data.sh
    • Retrieve the IP address of the nginx container docker inspect stm_nginx_1 and add it to your hosts file /etc/hosts: <IP_address> waarismijnstemlokaal.nl
  • Useful commands
    • Run the tests: sudo docker exec -it stm_app_1 nosetests
    • Remove and rebuild everything (this also removes the MySQL volume containing all gemeente, verkiezingen and BAG data (this is required if you want to load the .sql files from docker/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d again), but not the stembureaus data stored in CKAN)
      • Production: docker-compose down --rmi all && docker volume rm stm_stm-mysql-volume && docker-compose up -d
      • Development: docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml down --rmi all && docker volume rm stm_stm-mysql-volume && docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml up -d
    • Reload Nginx: sudo docker exec stm_nginx_1 nginx -s reload
    • Reload uWSGI (only for production as development environment doesn't use uWSGI and automatically reloads changes): touch uwsgi-touch-reload

Compile assets

  • Install all packages (only need to run once after installation or when you change packages): sudo docker exec stm_nodejs_1 yarn

Production

  • Compile CSS/JS to static/dist directory: sudo docker exec stm_nodejs_1 yarn prod

Development

  • Compile CSS/JS to static/dist directory (with map files): sudo docker exec stm_nodejs_1 yarn dev
  • Automatically compile CSS/JS when a file changes (simply refresh the page in your browser after a change): sudo docker exec stm_nodejs_1 yarn watch

CLI

To access the CLI of the app run sudo docker exec -it stm_app_1 bash and run flask, flask ckan and flask mysql to see the available commands. Here are some CLI commands:

  • flask mysql add-admin-user <email> add a new admin user with the specified email
  • flask ckan add-new-datastore <ID_of_resource> add a new datastore in a CKAN resource; this needs to be run once after you've created a new CKAN resource, see the 'Create new CKAN datasets and resources for new elections' section below
  • flask mysql add-gemeenten-verkiezingen-users add all gemeenten, verkiezingen and users specified in 'app/data/gemeenten.json' to the MySQL database and send new users an invitation email

Create new CKAN datasets and resources for new elections

  • If you want to add new elections, log in to https://ckan.dataplatform.nl/dashboard/datasets and click 'Dataset toevoegen'. Fill in the metadata (see earlier elections to see what to fill in). Make sure to create a 'concept' dataset besides the actual dataset. The concept dataset is used to store the stembureau data that isn't ready to be published yet.
  • After filling the dataset information, click 'Data toevoegen' in order to add a new resource/bron.

To enter the MySQL database

  • sudo docker exec -it stm_mysql_1 bash
  • mysql -p
  • Retrieve database password from docker/docker-compose.yml and enter it in the prompt

Update Nginx

  • On development:
    • docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml build --pull nginx
    • docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml up -d nginx
  • On production:
    • docker-compose build --pull nginx
    • docker-compose up -d nginx

Update App (Python)

  • On development:
    • docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml build --pull app
    • docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml up -d app
  • On production:
    • docker-compose build --pull app
    • docker-compose up -d app

Update MySQL

  • docker-compose pull mysql
  • docker-compose up -d mysql

Deploying

Use Fabric 2.x on your development machine to pull new changes from GitHub on a server and compile assets

  • fab deploy

Troubleshooting

If you try to visit waarismijnstemlokaal.nl and get a '502 Bad Gateway', then open the console in your browser. If you see a message like (this is in Firefox):

The character encoding of the HTML document was not declared. The document will render with garbled text in some browser configurations if the document contains characters from outside the US-ASCII range. The character encoding of the page must be declared in the document or in the transfer protocol.

or if you see something like this in your Docker logs:

app_1 | invalid request block size: 21573 (max 4096)...skip nginx_1 | 2021/12/20 16:12:40 [error] 30#30: *1 upstream prematurely closed connection while reading response header from upstream, client: 172.18.0.1, server: waarismijnstemlokaal.nl, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://172.18.0.3:5000/", host: "waarismijnstemlokaal.nl"

then you are probably mixing up development and production images for the app and nginx services (to be precise, nginx uses a normal HTTP request in the development environment, but uses uwsgi in production). Stop and remove the app and nginx containers and remove the app and nginx images. Build again (use the --no-cache option) and make sure that you use docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-dev.yml build --no-cache app nginx for development and simply docker-compose build --no-cache app nginx for production.
