Description of problem:
gramps connect project resides in gramps/webapp dir. it would be nice to have it packaged with dependency on django

Additional info:
snippet from setup.py
if server:
    packages = package_core + package_webapp
    packages = package_core + package_gui
Comment 1 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-07-12 09:53:31 EDT
Working on this.  I'm not *hugely* experienced with django and python webapps.  I see that it'll need python-django and numpy as well.  I see no documentation for the webapp anywhere.  I'm wondering if simply leaving it in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gramps/webapp/ and providing /etc/httpd/conf.d/gramps.conf is sufficient.  Have you experimented with it at all?
Comment 2 Jiri Kastner 2013-07-12 10:12:05 EDT
i was running older (3.5 which was first usable for work) as django app listening on default port (8000+), not as httpd + mod_wsgi or something like that. i was looking for something more lite, like nginx or cherokee, etc, to evaluate which to use on my arm devices.

Comment 3 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-07-12 10:43:18 EDT
It looks like it's just it's own daemon.  Maybe it just needs it's own user and unit file?  What files does it need write access to?
Comment 4 Jiri Kastner 2013-07-15 05:33:53 EDT
it is possible to run it as apache + mod_wsgi app or for developing as standalone app using django builtin server engine.
writing is required to sqlite db file, or to django settings file if needed postgres or mysql or another db server.
Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-08-13 15:30:38 EDT
Status update.  Sorry for the delay, other fires were more urgent.

I have it building the webapp, and I split out a -webapp and a -common.  Webapp Requires -common, as does the main package.  -common contains the cli, gen and plugins modules, -webapp contains webapp, and everything else is in the main package.  -webapp requires python-django.

Now I need to figure out a robust way to make it runnable and sanely packaged, which is a trick since it wants the code, config and db in one stop.  I'll probably have to accomplish this with symlinks.

The fun part is that the docs linked about seem out of date and I can't get it to do the db population.  Have you gotten this working?

in 4.0 no, only 3.5, which is other story. next week i'll start work on that.
Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-08-14 10:26:21 EDT
Ok, sounds good.  Any objection to my putting this in rawhide as is, at least to get the code out there?

we need:
1.) to have grampsdb/fixtures/initial_data.json
2.) sqlite.db linked to, for example, /var/lib/gramps, or better, have  postgresql setup
3.) probably settings.py in let say /etc/gramps/connect.conf and it will be linked from /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gramps/webapp
4.) provide working apache+mod_wsgi and/or nginx+uwsgi setups in /usr/share/doc
Comment 13 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-08-20 10:20:33 EDT
Ok, I've fixed up the Requires in rawhide.
Comment 14 Fedora End Of Life 2013-09-16 12:46:01 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 15 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 05:10:21 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 16 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 20:39:48 EDT
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
