Other Potential Sources

Getting Started

To setup a new working environment of this project, several items are needed:

  • Python (consult the requirements.txt for specific libraries/packages)
  • Redis
  • Postgres
  • Node

Building Static Media

npm install
npm run watch     # run a watcher on the static folder
npm run build     # builds static and exits
npm run buildprod # builds for production (uglify/minification)

Initialize the Database

After installing requirements (via pip) within your environment or virtualenv:

  • python migrate
  • python loaddata sites
  • python loaddata uw_network_seed
  • python loaddata uw_region_seed
  • python loaddata uw_title_seed
  • python loaddata uw_media_seed
  • python loaddata additional-languages
  • python reload_imports

At this point, the basic country and language datasets will be populated but without many optional fields or extra data.

Updating the /exports/langnames.json and /exports/langnames_short.json endpoints

When languages are added or updated, run this command to update the data locally:

python rebuild_langnames

Switch to the master branch and run this command to update the data on the server:

ec run web python rebuild_langnames
