Django site for managing an online publication.
## Setup
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
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., ''
