Before the application can be started, there are some preparations necessary. Beside cloning the repository, installing the required packages and configuring third party tools (like pgbouncer or apache2), there are the following additional points:
adjusting the Configuration
creating the PostgreSQL database
creating the file storage
creating the log directory
To do this in a convenient way, there is the
cdedb.cli module. It consumes most
necessary information from the Config (and the given overrides) and performs the setup
process via several python functions.
Additionally, it provides a command line interface, so the functions can be used during scripting or setup via terminal. All available targets are shown after executing:
python3 -m cdedb
Make sure to add the
cdedb module to the python path before.
