Local development tutorial
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. warn:: I reverse-engineered this from the source code I inherited, I might
          not be doing the right way nor be able to defend all of technical
          decisions.

This tutorial drives through a local installation of the project for
9
development on Linux. It requires git, a fairly recent version of python2 and

Quickstart
==========

There is a quickstart script used and tested manually by some of the
developers. Feel free to try it, but don't worry if it doesn't work for you
then you can do each install step manually, which is recommended because well
that's how you will learn most.

Here's how to try it::
21

22
    $ git clone https://git.laquadrature.net/memopol/memopol.git
23
24
25
    $ cd political_memory
    $ source bin/quickstart.sh

26
27
If you want more control or if it doesn't work for you, then follow the steps
below or have a look at what the quickstart script does.

Make a virtual environment
==========================

For the sake of the tutorial, we'll do this in the temporary directory, but you
could do it anywhere::

    $ cd /tmp

Create a python virtual environment and activate it::

    $ virtualenv memopol_env
    Using real prefix '/usr'
    New python executable in memopol_env/bin/python2
    Also creating executable in memopol_env/bin/python
    Installing setuptools, pip, wheel...done.

    $ source memopol_env/bin/activate

Alternatively, use the tox command::

    $ tox -e py27
    $ source .tox/py27/bin/activate

Clone the repository
====================

55
You should fork the project on git laquadrature.net and use the fork's clone url. For the
Jamesie Pic's avatar

sake of the demo, we'll use the main repository URL::

    $ git clone https://git.laquadrature.net/memopol/memopol.git

117
Memopol requires PostgreSQL 9.1 or higher.  It used to run with SQLite, too, but
that is no longer the case.  Memopol uses the following environment variables
for database access:

121
122
123
* ``MEMOPOL_DB_NAME`` (defaults to 'memopol')
* ``MEMOPOL_DB_USER`` (defaults to 'memopol')
* ``MEMOPOL_DB_PASSWORD`` (defaults to 'memopol')
* ``MEMOPOL_DB_HOST`` (defaults to 'localhost')
* ``MEMOPOL_DB_PORT`` (defaults to '5432')

Make sure the corresponding user and database exist on your system; the user
will need the 'createdb' permission in order to be able to run tests.  To create

Database migrations
===================

136
137
138
Database migrations ensure the database schema is up to date with the project.
If you're not sure, you can run them anyway, they won't do any harm.  Use the
following command::
