Tafferugli is a web application based on django.
Install python3 and pip
apt install python3 apt install python3-pip
Install graph-tool libraries, necessary to do some analysis on community graphs.
# Change DISTRIBUTION to match yours echo "deb [ arch=amd64 ] http://downloads.skewed.de/apt DISTRIBUTION main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list apt-key adv --keyserver keys.openpgp.org --recv-key 612DEFB798507F25 apt update apt install python3-graph-tool python3-cairo
(Remember to change DISTRIBUTION with yours. It can be one of: bullseye, buster, sid, bionic, disco, eoan). You can find out by issuing the command
git clone https://github.com/sowdust/tafferugli.git cd tafferugli virtualenv --system-site-packages -p python3 env . env/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.txt
You can configure some entries in the file settings.py. Also, remember to change the default value of SECRET_KEY with any random string of that length (50 characters - no whitespaces).
By default, Tafferugli is configured to run locally and to use a SQLite database. However, SQLite does not manage concurrency very well, often returning the error “Database is locked”. For this reason and for performance, it is strongly recommended to setup and use another database backend (PostgreSQL or MySQL). The file settings.py already contains a default database configuration for PostgreSQL.
python manage.py makemigrations python manage.py makemigrations twitter python manage.py migrate python manage.py createsuperuser # Follow the instructions to create one admin user
To run the application locally on your machine:
python manage.py runserver
On a different terminal, execute the background tasks that run the streamers and the metrics computation:
python manage.py process_tasks
If you want to have more control on the background processes, you can execute them in three different terminals (maybe in a
python manage.py process_tasks --queue streamers-queue python manage.py process_tasks --queue operations python manage.py process_tasks --queue metrics-computation
See django-background-tasks.readthedocs.io for more information.
The application is currently being developed, with bugs fixed and features introduced quite often. If you want to upgrade to the latest version, navigate to the root folder, pull the most recent updates from github and upgrade the database schema in case it was modified:
git pull python manage.py makemigrations twitter python manage.py migrate
People from lab61 have provided the following “all-in-one” docker file. It is only for development purposes and it is not intended to be run in production.
