Part 1: Contributor’s Guide¶
To start developing and testing MozBuzz you will need:
If you use Linux or Mac then you surely already have Python installed.
Getting the code¶
First you need get a copy of the code:
$ git clone https://github.com/mozillahispano/mozbuzz.git $ cd mozbuzz
Setup a virtual environment for the application¶
Create a new virtualenv to install MozBuzz dependencies without affecting other software in your machine:
$ virtualenv env
If you are using any UNIX OS, you could also use VirtualenvWrapper for this.
Install python packages¶
You’ll need install python packages used in this project. These are in requirements.txt. The best way to install these packages is using pip:
$ pip install -r docs/requirements.txt
Start creating a settings_local.py. You can use settings_local.py.example as a template.
$ python manage.py syncdb $ python manage.py migrate
$ python manage.py runserver
Now you can open http://localhost:8000 and see MozBuzz running.
