A Django site.

Powered by Sphene Community Tools



CommunityDraft is an example website which uses the SCT applications. It is basically not just a draft but a full blown website which is used to provide http://sct.sphene.net (I'm currently only using a couple of different settings and 2 overloaded templates to add google analytics and the bookmark link below the navigation)

1. Download

To get the CommunityDraft up and running is very easy actually. After you've got python and django installed simply checkout 'communitytools' and 'communitydraft' from subversion (see Downloads) into the same directory (or download a release).

1.1. Requirements

Make sure you have installed all requirements for SCT - You can find them in communitytools/README or on the Documentation page.

2. Configuration

Now change into the directory communitydraft/community/ and copy the file settings_local.py.tmpl to settings_local.py and configure the database settings:

DATABASE_ENGINE = 'postgresql'   # 'postgresql', 'mysql', 'sqlite3' or 
                                 # 'ado_mssql'.
DATABASE_NAME = 'communitydraft' # Or path to database file if using sqlite3.
DATABASE_USER = 'django'         # Not used with sqlite3.
DATABASE_PASSWORD = 'test'       # Not used with sqlite3.
DATABASE_HOST = ''      # Set to empty string for localhost. Not 
                                 # used with sqlite3.
DATABASE_PORT = ''               # Set to empty string for default. Not 
                                 # used with sqlite3.

3. Setup

After you completed this configuration (and configured your database accordingly) you can create the database tables by running:

./manage.py syncdb

from the same directory. In the end you will be asked to create a superuser account - you should do this.

4. Running

And as a last step.. start the project:

./manage.py runserver

By default this will start the server running on port 8000 so access your new cool website at:

5. What Now ?

After you've successfully set up your website locally you may wonder how to
