University of Waterloo - Humans vs Zombies
The latest UWaterloo HvZ website. Built on Django.
To create a local instance of the site for development:
git clone email@example.com:uwhumansvszombies/uwhvz.git pipenv install pipenv shell python manage.py migrate python manage.py runserver
python manage.py seed_datagenerates a bunch of fake data for testing purposes.
python manage.py makemigrations appto make a migration after changing models, etc.
The site is currently hosted on: Computer Science Club (CSC) servers.
We use a detached screen to run Gunicorn, which lets us run the site. Important commands include:
screen -S gunicorn: create a new screen to be detachable named "gunicorn"
screen -ls: should list exactly one detached screen where Gunicorn is running the site
screen -r: resumes the Gunicorn screen
If no screen is found, do the following:
screen -S gunicorn source venv/bin/activate gunicorn --bind 0.0.0.0:53271 uwhvz.wsgi
Exit out of the screen session (but keep it running) with
Ctrl+A+D. Failure to do this will make restarting the server significantly harder. Afterwards, check if the website is online.
If frontend-related changes are not refreshed on the site originally upon
python manage.py collectstatic, and restart the server. If that doesn't work, do the following:
rm -rf /static/ python manage.py collectstatic python manage.py compress --engine jinja2
The last line is for optimizing the size of our assets. Failure to run the last line will cause a 500 error.
