Development on Ubuntu

Environment setup

Choose one of the following two config:

Config global to your desktop

Follow the procedure Ubuntu from scratch

But instead using folders /etc/umap, you can create a ~/.umap folder. This folder will contain the umap.conf file.

And for folder /srv/umap, you can create a ~/umap folder (We will remove this folder later)

You will have to set an env var, we will set it in your .bashrc:

nano ~/.bashrc

Add the following at the end of file:

# uMap
export UMAP_SETTINGS=~/.umap/umap.conf

Then refresh your terminal

source ~/.bashrc

Run your local uMap and check that it is working properly.

Config inside your local git repo

Follow the procedure Ubuntu from scratch

You can use the in the git repo and copy it to your local git repo to umap/settings/

See Installation

Hacking on the code

Create a workspace folder ~/wk and go into it.

"git clone" the main repository and go in the umap/ folder.

Once you are in the umap/ folder, create a Python virtual environment:

python3 -m venv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Now, the umap command will be available.

Note: if you close your terminal, you will need to re-run that command from ~/wk/umap:

source venv/bin/activate

To test your code, you will add to install umap from your git folder. Go to ~/wk/umap and run:

make install

This command will check dependencies and install uMap from sources inside folder.

When installing from the git repository, do not forget to run make installjs and make vendors, before running umap collectstatic (as mentioned in Ubuntu from scratch).

Create a PostgreSQL database and apply migrations to setup your database:

createdb umap
umap migrate

You should now be able to start your local uMap instance:

umap runserver

Update translations

Install needed tools:

apt install gettext transifex-client

Pull the translations from transifex website:

tx pull -f

Then you will need to update binary files with command:

make compilemessages

Done. You can now review and commit modified/added files.
