Board engine behind Fanboi Channel written in Python.
There are two ways of getting the app up and running for development. Using Vagrant (The Better Way) or installing everything manually (The Adventurous Way). The recommened method is to use Vagrant as it closely replicates the production environment.
The Better Way
The easiest way to get the app running is to run Vagrant. You can follow these steps to get the app running:
- Install Vagrant of your preferred platform.
- Install VirtualBox or other providers supported by Vagrant.
vagrant upand read Getting Started while waiting.
vagrant sshto SSH into the development machine.
Once the development box is up and running, you may now run the server:
$ vagrant ssh $ cd /vagrant $ pserve development.ini
Now you're done! You can now proceed to the Management Scripts section below.
The Adventurous Way
If you don't really want to use Vagrant, you can also install everything using your preferred methods:
After the package above are up and running, you may now setup the application:
$ cp examples/development.ini.sample development.ini $ cp examples/alembic.ini.sample alembic.ini $ python3.5 setup.py develop $ alembic upgrade head $ pserve development.ini
And you're done! You can now proceed to the Management Scripts section below.
The application doesn't come with assets compiled by default and are done externally via Gulp and Typings. To compile assets, make sure Yarn packages are up-to-date and run
$ yarn $ yarn run typings install $ yarn run gulp
Once these commands are run, assets will be compiled to
fanboi2/static in which you should point the web server to it. You should do this on every deploy.
After you've setup the environment, the first thing you want to do is to create a new board:
$ fb2_create_board development.ini --title Lounge --slug lounge $ fb2_create_board development.ini --title Demo --slug demo
Above commands will create a board named "Lounge" and "Demo" at
/demo respectively. Now if you want to update something such as description, you can now do:
$ fb2_update_board development.ini -s lounge -f description
Slug is used here to identify which board to edit. All database fields in board are editable this way. Some field, such as
settings must be a valid JSON. Both commands also accepts
--help which will display some available options. Apart from the above two scripts, there are many other commands you might be interested in, such as:
pserve development.inito run the development server with Waitress.
pshell development.inito get into Python console with the app loaded.
fb2_celery development.ini workerto start a Celery worker.
alembic upgrade headto update the database to latest version with Alembic.
Celery worker is required to be run if you want to enable posting features.
Please make sure that test coverage is 100% and everything passed. It's also a good idea to open a bug ticket for feature you want to implement before starting. We have development IRC channel at irc.fanboi.ch#fanboi. Although if you want to submit patch anonymously you can also create git patch and post it to support board as well.
After you have done, simply open a pull request against master branch.
