This file gives the instructions to install Oralsite on Debian GNU/Linux and its derivatives (Ubuntu, Mint, etc.). # Install Node.js The version shipped with package managers is often old, so we have been compiling it from sources instead. This step is required to use the Less CSS compiler used in Django Compressor. mkdir -p src && cd src wget http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.10.25/node-v0.10.25.tar.gz tar zxvf node-v0.10.25.tar.gz cd node-v0.10.25 ./configure --prefix /usr/local/ make sudo make install # Install the Less CSS compiler sudo npm install -g less If you get a _registry error parsing json_, try using a mirror. sudo npm --registry http://registry.npmjs.eu/ install -g less # Install python-dev, libjpeg and libpng This is required by Pillow, the python library that deals with images, used in the filters (see bellow). If you don't, Pillow will fail to compile. On Debian based OS, you can install them by running sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-dev libjpeg-dev libpng-dev # Clone the repository If you read this, you have most likely already done this. git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:osp.work.oralsite.www.git # Install the python dependencies in a virtualenv This is the preferred method as it installs everything in an isolated environment. The requirements.txt file contains all the python depencies, which will be installed automatically with the code below. sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv virtualenv --no-site-packages venv source venv/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.txt # Copy and customize the local settings The file `oralsite/local_settings.py` contains the settings that may vary from one machine to an other. It completes the settings found in `oralsite/settings.py`. cp oralsite/local_settings.example.py oralsite/local_settings.py vim oralsite/local_settings.py The file contains default values to run the project with Django development server. You only need to set the `SECRET_KEY` value (search for "django generate secret key" in your favorite search engine). Feel free to customize the other values. The list of all available settings can be found at <https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.5/topics/settings/> # Initialize the database python manage syncdb # Create the media/cache directory mkdir -p media/cache # Run the projet Run the server. python manage runserver Now point your browser at <http://localhost:8000/> and start editing the wiki.
