Lernanta is the new platform for P2PU. We are building on the codebase from Batucada, a rewrite of by Mozilla.

Get Involved

To help out with Lernanta, join the P2PU dev mailing list and introduce yourself. We're currently looking for help from Django / Python and front-end (HTML, CSS, Javascript) developers.

Setting up a local development environment in Ubuntu

You will need to configure git and upload your SSH keys to github

You need a few libraries and can grab them with this command:

sudo apt-get install git libxml2-dev libxslt-dev mysql-client mysql-server libmysqlclient-dev python-dev

To obtain the lernanta's source code that you will be modifying, first fork the repository on the github website and then clone it by running:

git clone<your github username>/lernanta.git

Next, you'll need to install virtualenv and pip if you don't already have them. Using virtualenvwrapper is also recommended.

sudo easy_install virtualenv
sudo easy_install pip
pip install virtualenvwrapper

Be sure to configure your shell so that pip knows where to find your virtual environments:

# in .bashrc or .bash_profile
export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs
source /usr/local/bin/

Once installed, create your virtual environment for lernanta and install the dependencies. There's a chance that packages listed in requirements/compiled.txt won't install cleanly if your system is missing some key development libraries. For example, lxml requires libxml2-dev and libxslt-dev. These should be available from your system's package manager.

cd lernanta
mkvirtualenv --no-site-packages lernanta
workon lernanta
pip install -r requirements/compiled.txt
pip install -r requirements/prod.txt
pip install -r requirements/dev.txt

To be extra sure you're working from a clean slate, you might find it helps to delete .pyc files:


If the mysql database doesn't exist yet, create it. You will use the database name, user, and password in the next file (

mysqladmin -u <user> -p create <database name>

Create a based on the template provided in the checkout. Edit the database parameters as needed


If you have yet to get a local version of mysql running you will want to do so now.

Next, sync the database and run migrations.

python syncdb --noinput --migrate

Finally, start the development server to take it for a spin. You can register a new account and look in the terminal window where the server is running to find the activation link (If you get 404 error for that url, remove the "=":

python runserver

Once you have your development environment running, you can make changes or get the latest from github. See the wiki for more information:
