First you have to clone this repository and all its submodules:

git clone
cd pycon_de_website
git submodule init

Next create a virtualenv and install all the requirments into it. In this example we are using virtualenvwrapper to manage the virtualenv:

mkvirtualenv pyconde_website
workon pyconde_website
pip install -r requirements.txt

Now that this is complete, prepare the settings:

cd pyconde

Everything should be in place now to initialize the database. By default (as seen in the file) this is located in the local_database.db file right next to the

python syncdb --noinput --migrate

For PyCONDE we have prepared a bunch of fixtures that provide some basic conference data:

python loaddata ../fixtures/conference-setup.json
python loaddata tickets2012
python loaddata pyconde2012-tracks.json

After this is done, you should already have a working site, but it is still empty. To change that we have to create an admin user in order to gain access to the admin panel:

python createsuperuser

This will prompt a couple of questions you have to fill out. After this is complete, start the development-server on port 8000 with:

python runserver 8000

As a final step you have to create a frontpage in the via http://localhost:8000/admin/cms/page/add/.
