:minidisc: Installation Instructions

The portal is primarily a django based application, and to set it up we require to have python environment with django and other project dependencies installed. Though one can work with the project without an virtual environment, it is recommended to use one so as to avoid conflicts with other projects.

  1. Make sure that you have
    Python 3
    , and
  2. Clone the repository

        $ git clone
        $ cd cms
  3. Create a python 3 virtualenv, and activate the environment.

        $ virtualenv -p python3 .
        $ source bin/activate
  4. Install the project dependencies from

        $ pip install -r requirements.txt

You have now successfully set up the project on your environment. If you encounter any problems during installation, you can refer to installation page on our wiki.
