political memory : installation instructions

A local political memory with the same data as online versionwas completed and the installation instructions updated.

getting the sources

The developer home of the project was updated to show the git repository where the code is being developed and the data stored. The code is migrating toward a SQL based version but has been developed on couchdb which still is the default version when checking out the master branch.

(10:51:07 AM) staz: you are using the sql branch?
(10:51:24 AM) ***staz should recheck the requirement one since they have changed, don't know if bram adapted them
(10:52:13 AM) dachary: staz: I'm using http://gitorious.org/memopol2-0 master
(10:54:25 AM) staz: hum that's the one using couchdb, we are moving to sql
(11:19:13 AM) staz: dachary: all the dev is done on the sql branch, and it's far ahead the couchdb one. So if you want to code the sql branch is better

In order to be able to contribute using the gitorious workflow ( merge requests ) a clone was created and checked out.

setting couchdb based

The installation instructions were run on a Debian GNU/Linux squeeze distribution. The installation of python-pip was missing

sudo apt-get install python-pip

The extra sourcing of .bashrc was removed after it was confirmed to be redundant by staz on IRC. For some reason the numpy fails to install properly from requirements.txt. It is installed independently:

    pip install numpy==1.5.1
    pip install -r requirements.txt

After completing the instructions the following page could be displayed:

The updated instructions were pushed

and a merge request was issued to update the main repository. The complete shell session of the installation is archived.

installing the SQL branch

The sql branch was merged with the latest changes from Bram which fixes issues with the loading of the initial data.

(02:45:55 PM) Bram: dachary: I have pushed a patch, now after the syncdb you can do a migrate and everything should be fine

After completing the instructions, loading http://localhost:8080/ and navigating showed the following page:

The installation instructions were updated to include the SQL loading instructions as well as the SETUP.txt patch merged after request described previously.

hacking instructions

The companion document HACKING.txt was modified to fix an installation problem with lxml. The setup.py requirements were removed because they are made redundant by the instructions in SETUP.txt and HACKING.txt. The patch was submitted as a merge request against the sql branch of the memopo repository.
