Module Requirements

Note: Apply sudo if required for your system.

  1. First, make sure the development packages of libxml2 and libxslt are installed

Assuming you are running a Debian-based distribution, you can install them by using:

apt-get install python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev

Install the required packages by running:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Also, pip doesn't respect proxy while installing packages from the requirements file. So if you are using a proxy in your terminal you MAY use:

pip install -r requirements.txt --proxy=<proxy address>
  1. To deploy the code, uglify-js and uglifycss needs to be installed

To install uglifyjs:

npm install uglify-js -g

To install uglifycss:

npm install uglifycss -g


  1. Install web2py (We need 2.14.6 version only) in a directory. We have committed the web2py source so that you can directly unzip and start using it

    • Unzip the somewhere outside the stopstalk directory.
    • After unzipping the web2py, copy the source of stopstalk to its applications directory
    • Final directory structure should be something like -
      • web2py/
        • applications/
          • stopstalk/
            • models
            • views
            • controllers
            • ...
  2. Navigate into the applications directory in web2py directory.

    $ cd web2py/applications/
  3. Install StopStalk by cloning this repository

    git clone
    mv stopstalk-deployment stopstalk

    Note: Web2Py does not allow appname to contain hyphens.

  4. Install MySQL - here Make sure you remember the root password for mysql server.

  5. Create a database in MySQL

    $ mysql -u root -p        # Enter your mysql root password after this.
    mysql> CREATE DATABASE stopstalkdb;
    mysql> CREATE DATABASE uvajudge;
  6. Copy to models/

    $ cd stopstalk/
    $ cp models/ models/
  7. Open and change the settings.

    current.mysql_user = "root" # Change if you have given access to any other user in mysql
    current.mysql_password = "" # As per your mysql password
    current.mysql_server = "localhost"
    current.mysql_dbname = "migration" # Will remain same as long as you followed 5.
    current.mysql_uvadbname = "uvajudge" # Will remain same as long as you followed 5.
    # Configure mail options
    current.smtp_server = "logging" # Mails will not be sent. Will be logged where the web2py server is running
                                    # Else you can set it to your smtp server.
    current.sender_mail = ""        # Not required if logging
    current.sender_password = ""    # Not required if logging
    current.bulk_smtp_server = "logging"
    current.bulk_sender_mail = ""        # Not required if logging
    current.bulk_sender_password = ""    # Not required if logging
    current.analytics_id = "" # Leave it empty if you don't want Google Analytics on Localhost
    current.calendar_token = "" # Leave it empty if you don't have an access token ID for Google Calendar API
    # Leave the following empty for very basic email validation
    current.neverbounce_user = ""
