Local Development with Docker¶
Require most recent version of Docker.
Domains for local development¶
You will need two domain to run this app. One for the public site and one for the apply site.
Add this to your
127.0.0.1 hypha.test 127.0.0.1 apply.hypha.test
The "test" TLD is safe to use, it's reserved for testing purposes.
OBS! All examples from now on will use the
Get the code¶
$ git clone https://github.com/HyphaApp/hypha.git hypha $ cd hypha
Create media directory¶
In production media is stored on AWS S3 but for local development you need a "media" directory.
$ mkdir media
Build the Docker images¶
Run the docker compose command to build the images. This will take some time.
If you need to rebuild the images to get a later version just run the "build" again.
$ docker-compose --file docker/docker-compose.yaml build
The build command needs to be run from Hypha root so it can copy needed files. The other commands are easier to run directly from the "docker" sub directory.
Start the docker environment¶
Move to the "docker" directory.
$ cd docker
To start the docker containers you use the "up" command. This command you will use each time you want to start up and use this docker environment.
$ docker-compose up
Access the docker environment¶
Go to http://hypha.test:8090/
Run commands in the docker environment¶
To get bash shell on the container that runs the Django app, use this command.
docker-compose exec py bash
Here you can issue django commands as normal. You might want to change the user - the default is circleci, but most of the code is owned by the user 'node'. To do that:
docker-compose exec -u node py bash
To get a shell on the container that runs Postgres, use this command.
docker-compose exec db bash
Stop the docker environment.¶
ctrl+c in the terminal window.
Restore a database dump in Docker¶
We will use the "public/sandbox_db.dump" for this example. That is a good start in any case, you get some example content etc.
First get a shell on the db container.
docker-compose exec db bash
Then in that shell you need to install
wget to download the db dump.
apt update apt install wget
Then download the sandbox db dump from Github.
Before being able to work on this database, you have to drop and prevent any other connections to it.
psql # REVOKE CONNECT ON DATABASE hypha FROM public; # SELECT pg_terminate_backend(pg_stat_activity.pid) FROM pg_stat_activity WHERE pg_stat_activity.datname = 'hypha'; # \q
With this done, drop and then create the hypha database and run the pg restore command like this.
dropdb --user=hypha hypha createdb --user=hypha hypha pg_restore --verbose --clean --if-exists --no-acl --no-owner --dbname=hypha --username=hypha sandbox_db.dump
After restoring the sandbox db run the migrate command inside the py container.
docker-compose exec py bash python manage.py migrate
