Virtual environment

Create a new virtualenv:

$ python3 -m venv venv-wger
$ source venv-wger/bin/activate

Get the code

Download the source code:

$ git clone src
$ cd src

Install Requirements

Install python requirements:

$ pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
$ pip install -e .

Install application

This will download the required JS and CSS libraries and create an SQLite database and populate it with data on the first run:

$ wger create-settings
$ wger bootstrap
$ wger load-online-fixtures

You can of course also use other databases such as PostgreSQL or MariaDB. Create a database and user and edit the DATABASES settings before calling bootstrap. Take a look at the PostgreSQL on apache on how that could look like.

Start the server

After the first run you can just use Django’s development server:

$ python runserver

That’s it. You can log in with the default administrator user:

  • username: admin

  • password: adminadmin

You can reset the admin’s password with wger create-or-reset-admin.
