How to setup microblog.pub for development on ubuntu 18.04

First clone the repo:

git clone https://github.com/tsileo/microblog.pub

You need a couple of dependencies, so install those:

# install pyenv and python3.7.5
curl https://pyenv.run | bash
exec $SHELL # reloads the shell
pyenv install 3.7.5

# docker
# follow the instructions at https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/ubuntu/
# then add your user to the docker group
sudo groupadd docker
sudo systemctl restart docker

# docker-compose
sudo curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.25.0/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

In the microblog.pub directory, create and activate the virtual env:

pyenv virtualenv 3.7.5 microblog.pub
pyenv local microblog.pub

Now install the dependencies:

pip3 install wheel
pip3 install -r requirements.txt

create the initial config file me.yml

sudo make config

download static files (css, emojis)

make css

Now you can run create the container and run the flask server:

sudo env POUSSETACHES_AUTH_KEY="<secret-key>" docker-compose -f docker-compose-dev.yml up -d
FLASK_DEBUG=1 MICROBLOGPUB_DEBUG=1 FLASK_APP=app.py POUSSETACHES_AUTH_KEY="<secret-key>" flask run -p 5005 --with-threads
