This website runs the pyweek.org challenge.
The production site runs against a PostgreSQL database. You can run one of these using Docker for development purposes:
docker run --name pyweek-postgresql postgres:latest
You will need to put the IP address of this service into your settings; you can obtain this with:
docker inspect pyweek-postgresql
You will need to create an account and database on the new host. To do this you
will need the PostgreSQL
psql command to be installed. Create a database
$ psql -h 172.17.0.2 postgres postgres psql (9.5.12, server 10.3 (Debian 10.3-1.pgdg90+1)) WARNING: psql major version 9.5, server major version 10. Some psql features might not work. Type "help" for help. postgres=# create database pyweek; CREATE DATABASE postgres=# \d No relations found. postgres=# CREATE USER pyweek WITH PASSWORD 'hunter2'; CREATE ROLE postgres=# DROP DATABASE pyweek; DROP DATABASE postgres=# create database pyweek with owner pyweek; CREATE DATABASE postgres=# \q
How to set up a PyWeek-like site:
- Create a virtualenv
- Create a local settings file based on the template given in
Running a dev server
To run the dev server, use:
django-admin.py runserver --settings=dev_settings --pythonpath=.
This assumes you have first created a dev_settings.py file. An example is given in dev_settings_example.py.
When starting with a blank database, you can set it up initially using the following command:
django-admin.py migrate --settings=dev_settings --pythonpath=.
You will then also want to create an admin account to enable access to the administration panel, which can be done using this command:
django-admin.py createsuperuser --settings=dev_settings --pythonpath=.
