I've been winning at Eve for a few years now (translation for non-players: "winning Eve" means not playing), and haven't been working on this in that time either. If anyone would like to continue development themselves, I'd be more than happy to transfer this repo into an organization and point people there.
So, this is still in-progress, and I'm putting off writing a real readme until it's closer to a real release. IN the mean time, here're some screenshots
In addition to the libraries this project uses, I need to thank the Eve alliances Test Alliance Please Ignore and Brave. This app was originally written as a replacement for Test's old SRP app, but Brave ended up needing one before we were ready to deploy it for Test. Brave's early IT team and alliance members were great "beta" testers, making suggestions that improved the app in a myriad of ways.
A very large thank you to Galaxy Android as well for alerting me to a security vulnerability that was fixed in v0.12.12.
In addition to the dependencies listed in setup.py/requirements.txt, EVE-SRP
utilities (UglifyJS2, LESS), but the majority are used as part of the user
interface. To install all development dependencies at once you can use the
build-deps make target:
DEBUG variable for make.
DEBUG="true" make all
To run the development server, you can use the included
evesrp command line
utility. I recommend installing the project in editable mode to get access to
./setup.py develop evesrp -c config.py runserver
If all you want to do is run EVE-SRP, you can skip the steps above and install it from PyPI (in a virtualenv!) like this:
pip install EVE-SRP
If you're planning on using either the Brave Core or one of the OAuth-based authentication mechanisms, you'll need to install either of those options like so:
pip install EVE-SRP[BraveCore]
pip install EVE-SRP[OAuth,BraveCore]
Quick Side Note: If your system has an older version of pip (<6.0) or setuptools (<8.0) you will need to update them.
You will also need the appropriate adapter for your database of choice. For example, I use PostgreSQL, and use the psycopg2 adapter:
pip install psycopg2
You then need to set up the database for your application. Continuing the example with Postgres, creating the database might look something like this:
psql -c 'CREATE DATABASE evesrp;'
Now you need to create the configuration file. This will tell EVE-SRP how to connect to the database, how users should log in, and other things like that. There's an example of an instance folder using Brave's Core and Test's OAuth provider for authentication with customized killmail processing in the 'examples' folder in the repository (browsable through GitHub).
With an instance folder set up like the example, you can then create the database tables for the app using the management command. This command is installed as part of installing the EVE-SRP package.
evesrp -i /path/to/instance/folder/ db create
The final step is setting up the WSGI part of the app. For a super simple
solution, you can use the server built into Flask. The
run.py file in the
'examples' folder is setup to work like this. This server is not meant for
production use, and is only good for verifying that things work.
Using Heroku, you can use the same
run.py file with a Procfile
web: gunicorn run:app
For a standalone Nginx+uWSGI setup with Nginx listening on a Unix domain socket, your uwsgi command might looks something like this:
uwsgi -s /path/to/uwsgi.sock -H /path/to/virtualenv -w run:app
For more information on how to serve a Python app using Gunicorn, check out Flask's documentation on deployment.
EVE-SRP requires Python 2.7 or >=3.3 and a database (with connector) that is supported by SQLAlchemy. EVE-SRP is typically developed against PostgreSQL with the psycopg2 adapter. It is also tested regularly with the following database adapters:
- MySQL-Python (Python 2.7 only)
