Running The Application

  1. You should have Python3 installed on your system
  2. Install PIP3 using sudo apt-get install python3-pip
  3. Install Virtualenc using pip install virtualenv
  4. Now create a virtual environment using virtualenv -p [path to your python3] [name of the virtual environment]
  5. Activate the virtial environment by using source [path to your virtual environment]/bin/source [Note:- To deactivate just type deactivate]
  6. Install uWSGI using pip install uwsgi
  7. Install Gunicorn using pip install gunicorn
  8. Install Jinja2 using pip install Jinja2
  9. NGINX should be installed in your system
  10. Download the application from GitHub -
  11. Extract the application
  12. Copy the www folder within the extras folder to /home/
  13. If you like to use uWSGI then copy localhost.conf file within extras to conf.d folder of NGINX
  14. If you like to use Gunicorn then change the filename of localhost.gunicorn.conf to localhost.conf file within extras to conf.d folder of NGINX
  15. Start NGINX using sudo service nginx start
  16. If you like to use uWSGI then move to the folder where you have extracted the application in terminal and then run python application.py. To stop the server press CTRL+C. [Note:- Virtual environment should be activated before this]
  17. Now you can check out the application at http://localhost:9876 or you can directly use the search feature of the application using http://localhost:9876/navigator?search_term=[search keyword] replace [search keyword] with your own keyword and you will get the result.
  18. If you like to use Gunicorn then move to the folder where you have extracted the application in terminal and then run python application.gunicorn.py. To stop the server press CTRL+C. [Note:- Virtual environment should be activated before this]
  19. Next process remains the same as above [No. - 17]
  20. ENJOY 👍 🍺
