Development Setup

Datastore

I am using Postgresql for the datastore due to what I read about concurrancy over mysql, figured that would be good for an API. During development using a container on my machine.

docker run --rm   --name pg-docker -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=postgres -d -p 5432:5432 -v $HOME/docker/volumes/postgres:/var/lib/postgresql/data  postgres:11

You can use this command to connect to the postgresql instance in the container.

docker ps # to find the CONTAINER ID
docker exec -it 05b3a3471f6f bash

From the shell login to the db and setup initial user and database

psql -U postgres

Create your creds.py from the creds_sample.py

cp creds_sample.py creds.py

Edit creds.py with correct info for your db.

More info coming soon on using the scripts in database/ to create tables and load them with data.

Development Env.

Project is using Python 3.7

In the project we use pipenv when developing.

pipenv install && pipenv shell

Production

When running on Debian server libpq-dev is required, this is postgresl library.

sudo apt-get install libpq-dev
