PAKET Manager

The PAKET Manager is a small collection of scripts used to automatically deploy, test, and run PAKET software.

Setup Your Manager

  1. Create a project directory and enter it:
mkdir paket
cd paket
  1. Clone the repository inside the project directory and enter it:
git clone
cd manager

Note that this method requires using SSH keys. If you would rather clone the repository over public access simply use:

git clone
cd manager
  1. Create a python virtual environment:
python3 -m venv venv
  1. Activate the python virtual environment:
. venv/bin/activate
  1. Make sure you are using an updated pip:
pip install --upgrade pip
  1. Make sure your paket.env contains all desired variables and values.

Deploy, Test, and Run PAKET Software

  1. Deploy the software:

Note that this will create several directories in the project directory, which is the repository's parent directory.

  1. Initialize the database:
  1. Test the software:

If you wish to use pycodestyle and/or pylint in your tests, just install them into your virtual environment and the script will take care of the rest:

pip install pycodestyle pylint
  1. Run the servers:
  1. Access the swagger Web interfaces from a browser (that the ports will change according to your webserver settings):
