To get set up on the project:

  1. Set up virtualenv
    • run "virtualenv venv"
    • to activate run "source venv/bin/activate"
    • to deactivate run "deactivate"
  2. Use pip to install dependencies (in the virtualenv)
  3. Run "python"

Database stuff:

Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install mysql-server libmysqlclient-dev Fedora: yum install python-migrate

Run the following commands:

  • "sudo mysql"
  • "create database homl;"
  • "create user 'homl'@'localhost' identified by 'homl';"
  • "grant all privileges on homl.* to 'homl'@'localhost';"
  • "flush privileges;" Quit out of mysql with "quit". Then run:
  • "./ db migrate"
  • "./ db upgrade"

To check the database subsequently, run "mysql -uhoml -phoml" To change database structure, edit homl/, then run migrate and upgrade again. If you happen to remove the migrations folder, then run init, migrate, then upgrade.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
