An open-source social networking application which runs https://pjuu.com
Please Note: Pjuu is under very active development. A lot may change between releases until we are happy with it :)
This is an open source project released under the GNU AGPLv3 license. See LICENSE for more details or visit the official GNU page at http://www.gnu.org/licenses/agpl-3.0.html.
This is the primary code base for https://pjuu.com, the website is deployed directly from this respository.
The main goal of Pjuu as an application is privacy.
Pjuu is written in Python/Flask and uses Redis and MongoDB as the data stores.
Getting started with Pjuu or deploying it yourself is quite easy if you are familiar with Python. We will only cover development here and the following documentation is for Debian 8 (Jessie) Linux (we are big fans). Pjuu should work with and any other Linux distribution, however you will need to change the commands to fit your envionment. It has also been tested with FreeBSD, but this is beyond the scope of the README.
For a fresh installation these commands will setup the environment:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev python-setuptools libmagickwand-dev redis-server mongodb $ sudo easy_install virtualenv $ git clone https://github.com/pjuu/pjuu.git $ cd pjuu $ virtualenv venv $ source venv/bin/activate $ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
You can also use Vagrant to setup the environment:
$ vagrant up $ vagrant ssh
To run the unit tests with coverage the following commands can be used:
$ make test
To obtain a code coverage report
$ make coverage
Checking code quality and PEP8 compliance:
$ make flake
To Run the development server (Gunicorn with Gevent) type the following command:
$ make run
You can then view the site by visiting: http://localhost:5000
You can now play with the code base :)
Creating test accounts
While testing You do NOT need to setup an SMTP server. To activate your an account you can look in the response header for X-Pjuu-Token. If you copy this and visit
/activate/<token> that will have the same effect as clicking the link in the activate account email. The same applies for any other action requiring confirmation (forgotten password), it will however be a different URL you need to append the token to.
This only works if
TESTING = True in your settings.
We are open to all pull requests. Spend some time taking a look around, locate a bug, design issue or spelling mistake then send us a pull request :)
All software has bugs in and Pjuu is no different. These may have security implications. If you find one that you suspect could allow you to do something you shouldn't be able to please do not post it as an issue on Github. We would really appreciate it if you could send an e-mail to email@example.com with the relevant details.
