Pebble Store Replacement

This is a Python implementation of the rebble store api.



First, you'll need Python > 3. I recommend the latest stable (3.6.0 as of this writing). You can install this either through pyenv, your OS's package manager, or by compiling from source.

Next you'll need PostgreSQL. This should be installed via your OS's package manager if possible. If not, you may install from source.

You'll need a pebble user (with password pebble) and a database to which this user has full rights (called pebble_app) running on the same machine as the server running this project. These values are all overwritable by building a proper config. This is explained below.

Once a python 3.x binary is in your $PATH and PostgreSQL is running with the above mentioned user, password, and database, you should be able to install with pip:

git clone
cd rebblestore-api-python
pip install .

N.B: If you intend to develop on this project pip install -e . may be more appropriate, as this installs the project 'editably'. See pip install -h for more information on this functionality.


Some application behavior is overridable via a config file. The default implementation for a debug server is at rebble_store/app_debug.cfg.

This config file may be either edited directly (NOT recommended) or copied and then passed as the argument --config option when running flask run.

Currently the following behavior is overridable from this file:

  • PostgreSQL configuration:

    • Host
    • Database
    • Username
    • Password
  • Server Name (This only affects the list_routes flask cli helper currently)


Once the package has been installed, you may easily run the development server. In the same directory you changed into above, run:

flask run

This will start the development server at localhost:5000 and begin responding to requests. Once FLASK_APP has been set (as above), you may inspect these additional commands with flask.

Additionly, there are a number of commands intended to assist in populating the earlier mentioned PostgreSQL database with data. These commands presume that a "source" directory exists on the hard disk somewhere in the same format as is downloadable here.

N.B: This functionality has not been tested throughly enough for my liking. It seems to work for us, but please open an issue (or better yet - a pull request) yshould you encounter any issues.
