Votainteligente the electoral platform that Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente uses to transparent the electoral positions of different candidates to an election.
VotaInteligente depends on 3 parts candideit.org, popit and write-it. You might choose to use all of them or just part. In the following document it is described how to install.
This guide was made using an ubuntu 13.10 just installed.
Before the installation process is started a number of requirements is needed
- Clone votainteligente somewhere in your system.
git clone https://github.com/ciudadanointeligente/votainteligente-portal-electoral.git
Enter the installation directory
- Create a virtual environment
Here you can optionally give the command the full path to the installation directory by adding -a <full_path>.
- If you didn't use the -a option you'll have to cd into the directory.
- Install the requirements that votainteligente needs in the current virtualenvironment
pip install -r requirements.txt
It might take some time to get all installed
- Create the database and tables.
python manage.py syncdb
Update the tables with migrations
python manage.py migrate
Bringing elections from candideit.org
Elections in VotaInteligente have a one-to-one relation with elections in candideit.org, so for your installation you'll first need to create an election in candideit.org and follow the next steps.
Specifically for this installation we are not using popit (But we'll soon be doing so).
- Create the file votainteligente/local_settings.py with the following content.
USE_POPIT = False CANDIDEITORG_URL = http://candideit.org/api/v2/' CANDIDEITORG_USERNAME = 'YOUR-CANDIDEITORG-USERNAME' CANDIDEITORG_API_KEY = 'YOUR-CANDIDEITORG-APIKEY'
- Getting your elections from candideit.org into your installation.
You need to run the following command
python manage.py update_from_candidator
- Running VotaInteligente
python manage.py runserver
And hit http://localhost:8000/.
Previously created themes
Creating your own custom theme
If you want to create a new theme you have to create a directory containing two different subdirectories templates and static, and copy the templates that you want to replace.
And in your project in your local_settings.py file you have to add the following
STATICFILES_DIRS = ( '/full/path/to/your/theme/static/', ) TEMPLATE_DIRS = ( '/full/path/to/your/theme/templates/', )
