University of Waterloo - Humans vs Zombies

About

The latest UWaterloo HvZ website. Built on Django.

Dev Setup

To create a local instance of the site for development:

git clone git@github.com:uwhumansvszombies/uwhvz.git
pipenv install
pipenv shell
python manage.py migrate
python manage.py runserver

Useful things

  • python manage.py seed_data generates a bunch of fake data for testing purposes.
  • python manage.py makemigrations app to make a migration after changing models, etc.

Production Setup

General

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.

Assets

If frontend-related changes are not refreshed on the site originally upon pulling, use 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.
