Django site for managing an online publication.
Before running pip install make sure the following packages are installed:
- postgresql-devel (libpq-dev in Debian/Ubuntu, libpq-devel on Centos/Fedora/Cygwin/Babun.)
- libjpeg (libjpeg-dev, zlib1g-dev)
On a Debian/Ubuntu system run:
sudo apt install libpq-dev libjpeg-dev zlib1g-dev
Within a virtualenv, run the following commands, in order:
pip install -r requirements.txt cd django python3 manage.py makemigrations journal cms uploads blog python3 manage.py migrate python3 manage.py createsuperuser python3 manage.py loaddata initial_fixtures.json
python3 manage.py runserver
You can find the admin interface at http://localhost:8000/sudo/ (for the
superuser) or http://localhost:8000/editor/ (the link to give to editors).
You can create users with editor permissions via the /sudo/ admin site:
is_staff to True, and give them any necessary permissions (there will
be a permission group eventually, but for now you'll have to select them
With the updated initial_fixtures you will create all the required objects:
- 2 issues (first-issue, second-issue)
- 3 categories (inquiry, theory, bulletins)
- 5 pages (homepage, about, support, contribute, lom)
These objects are all required for the cms (header links, index etc.) to work.
