Development setup

  1. Make sure that you have a working pretix development setup.
  2. Clone this repository, eg to local/pretix-passbook.
  3. Activate the virtual environment you use for pretix development.
  4. Execute python develop within this directory to register this application with pretix's plugin registry.
  5. Execute make within this directory to compile translations.
  6. Restart your local pretix server. You can now use the plugin from this repository for your events by enabling it in the 'plugins' tab in the settings.

Generating Passbook keys and configuring them in pretix

You can generate a key and CSR using:

openssl genrsa -out pass-pretix.key 2048
openssl req -new -key pass-pretix.key -out pass-pretix.csr

You can then request a certificate using that CSR in your Apple developer account. You can then convert the downloaded certificate like this:

openssl x509 -inform der -in pass-pretix.cer -out pass-pretix.pem

After generating the .pem file, upload it to pretix as passbook certificate. Make sure you have uploaded the key generated before (pass-pretix.key) and added the passbook CA of apple. Next add your Team ID in pretix and the passbook type id. This is your identifier, as example pass.pretix.example. If you have configured your private rsa key with a password you can provide it in pretix.

Click on Save. Enjoy!
