The initial development of openMod.sh was funded from September 2014 until March 2017 by the Gesellschaft für Energie und Klimaschutz Schleswig-Holstein GmbH (EKSH), by the ARGE Netz GmbH & Co. KG and by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Industrie- und Handelskammern zu Flensburg, zu Kiel und zu Lübeck (IHK Schleswig-Holstein).
The packages that
openmod.sh depends on are listed in
openmod.sh is properly packaged, it's best to just do:
pip install -r requirements.txt
to install all necessary requirements.
Openmod.sh depends on
oemof.db. Have a look at it's README for
information on how to configure database access. Note that
expects its database configuration to be in a
config.ini section named
openMod.sh R/W. Be careful. As the 'R/W' suggests, the editor expects
read and write access. Additionaly to the standard
oemof.db options the
following section have to be specified:
schema: e.g. public, the database schema to be used
webport: e.g. 8000, the port being used when running openmod.sh.py
Installation and Execution
openmod.sh is not a full fledged python package yet, there's really
nothing to install, you'll have to clone the repository manually. As mentioned
in Requirements. After you have done this, you should have a
directory containing the source code for
openmod.sh. Let's call it
OPENMOD.SH for the reminder of this section.
Setting up the
openmod.sh database (aka.: create the tables)
Openmod.sh expects its database structure to already be set up in a
working state so that all necessary tables already exist and data can be
queried and stored. Setting things up is best achieved by a few lines of
Python code, which the fine folks behind flask-sqlalchemy were
kind enough to document.
Initializing the application to work with flask-sqlalchemy is taken care
of in the
openmod.sh codebase, so all you have to do is import the
right modules, push an application context, create the tables and commit
the transaction. To do so,
cd into the repository's directory and run:
Ready to start
Now you're ready to start
openmod.sh which is as simple as
Note that you should still be residing in OPENMOD.SH, obviously.
Then open your browser and point it to the port which is specified in
