How to install it on Mac OS X

aerkalov edited this page · 3 revisions

Instructions were tested on Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6 and 10.8. We assume your Python Virtual Environment is called 'mybooktype' and your Booktype project is called 'mybook'. Feel free to change it.

Be careful you have correct access permissions.

You MUST install Homebrew and you MUST install Xcode or Command Line Development Tools.

You MUST figure out for yourself how to start Redis and PostgreSQL server installed with Homebrew. Write 'brew info redis' for more information.

Booktype with Sqlite3

This example works with Sqlite3 and Python built in web server. This method is not recommended for production server.

How to install

# Install needed packages
brew install git redis libjpeg libpng libxml2

# Create Python Virtual Environment and install needed Python modules
virtualenv --distribute mybooktype
cd mybooktype
source bin/activate

# For Mac OS X 10.8
# There is a problem with 10.8 and you MUST do this. Version of library might be different.
pip install lxml --install-option="--with-xml2-config=/usr/local/Cellar/libxml2/2.8.0/bin/xml2-config"

# If you don't have 10.8 you can try to do just this
pip install lxml

# Install rest of Python packages
pip install Django==1.3 South==0.7.5 unidecode PIL

# Fetch Booktype source
git clone https://github.com/sourcefabric/Booktype.git

# Create Booktype project
./Booktype/scripts/createbooki --database sqlite mybook

# Initialise Booktype
source mybook/booki.env
django-admin.py syncdb --noinput
django-admin.py migrate
django-admin.py loaddata documentation_licenses
django-admin.py createsuperuser

# Start server
django-admin.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8080

How to run it again

cd mybooktype
source bin/activate
source mybook/booki.env
django-admin.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8080

Booktype with PostgreSQL

This example works with PostgreSQL and Python built in web server. Version of PostgreSQL server depends of your distribution. This method is recommended for production server.

Be aware this has not been fully tested.

How to install

# Install needed packages
brew install git redis libjpeg libpng libxml2 postgresql

# Create Python Virtual Environment and install needed Python modules
virtualenv --distribute mybooktype
cd mybooktype
source bin/activate

# For Mac OS X 10.8
# There is a problem with 10.8 and you MUST do this. Version of library might be different.
pip install lxml --install-option="--with-xml2-config=/usr/local/Cellar/libxml2/2.8.0/bin/xml2-config"

# If you don't have 10.8 you can try to do just this
pip install lxml

# Install rest of Python packages
pip install Django==1.3 South==0.7.5 unidecode PIL psycopg2

# Fetch Booktype source
git clone https://github.com/sourcefabric/Booktype.git

# Create Booktype project
./Booktype/scripts/createbooki --database postgresql mybook

# Create PostgreSQL user and enter password
/usr/local/bin/createuser -SDRP booktype

# Create PostgreSQL database
/usr/local/bin/createdb -E utf8 -O booktype booktype

You will need to enter database info in the settings file. Edit mybooktype/mybook/settings.py file and put this as database info (you will need to enter username password also).

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.postgresql_psycopg2',
        'NAME': 'booktype',                      
        'USER': 'booktype',
        'PASSWORD': 'ENTER PASSWORD HERE',
        'HOST': 'localhost',
        'PORT': ''
    }
}

You can continue now with initialisation.

source mybook/booki.env
django-admin.py syncdb --noinput
django-admin.py migrate
django-admin.py loaddata documentation_licenses
django-admin.py createsuperuser

# Run server
django-admin.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8080

How to run it again

cd mybooktype
source bin/activate
source mybook/booki.env
django-admin.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8080
