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 makemigrations journal cms uploads blog
python3 migrate
python3 createsuperuser
python3 loaddata initial_fixtures.json


python3 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: set 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 manually).

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.

Deploying in production

To deploy in production with Postgres, a custom secret key, and DEBUG=False, set the following environment variables within the virtualenv:

  • POSTGRES_PASSWORD: the password for PostgreSQL
  • DJANGO_SECRET_KEY: the SECRET_KEY used by Django (set to a random string)
  • ALLOWED_HOST: e.g., ''
