$ git clone [email protected]:level09/enferno.git

$ cd enferno 

$ virtualenv env

$ source env/bin/activate 

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Edit the and change the values to suit your needs, specifically you can change Flask security settings, security keys, Redis DB, Mysql settings, and Flask mail.

If you are installing Enferno locally, you will also need to replace "redis" and "postgres" with "localhost" in connection strings.

After that, copy or rename the file (.env-sample) to (.env) and adjust the settings inside, then run

flask create-db
flask install 

and follow the instructions, that will create your database tables, and first admin user and role.

to run the system, you can use the following management command:

$ flask run

to use Vue and Parcel bundler for development:

$ npm install -g parcel-bundler
$ npm install
$ npm run watch

to build for production run:

$ npm run build 

Favicons Generator

To use the favicons generator, just replace enferno/src/favicons/enferno.svg with your own logo and run:

$ npm run favicons 

A full set of favicons will be generated inside enferno/static/favicons/ directory.

feel free to modify the script inside favicons.js to fit your needs.

Running Celery

celery -A enfenro.tasks worker

you can add -b to activate Celery heartbeat (periodic tasks)

A sample task that runs within the app context has been prepared for you within the enfenro/tasks/ file, this is helpful if you have background tasks that interact with your SQLAlchemy models.

Using Docker

Feel free to adjust Docker settings inside the docker-compose.yml and Dockerfile / .env file. then run:

$ docker-compose up
