You can safely install from master, it is almost always in a usable and stable state.

Virtual environment

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

Get the code

$ git clone src
$ cd src

Install Requirements

$ pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
$ npm install -g yarn sass
$ python develop

Install application

This will download the required JS and CSS libraries and create a 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 postgres or mariaDB. Create a database and user and edit the DATABASES settings before calling bootstrap. Take a look at the prod_postgres 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 start the application again with the django server with python runserver.
