I am just getting started with geonode and spent a few days wrapping my
head around it. After some initial trouble, I got the production version
up and running on a VirtualBox Ubuntu 14.04 server 64 bit. It appears
that the production version is not suitable for customization, so I need
a work-flow on how to customize the site before pushing it to production
@GeoNode on twitter confirmed that there is a suitable work-flow for
that and directed my to geonode-project
<https://github.com/geonode/geonode-project> and ansible-geonode
<https://github.com/GeoNode/ansible-geonode> and github which I have now
spent another few days implementing - now finally admitting that I am
stuck. @GeoNode also directed my to this email-list for further questions.
I ran "python manage.py syncdb" (why does it use sqllite by default with
no postgis settings in my_geonode.settings?) and I ran "python manage.py
runserver" only to see errors revealing that practically all html
templates are missing from the my_geonode/temlates/. So, I copied all
the templates from the production vm (at
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/geonode/templates/*) to my host
machine and put them in my_geonode/templates/ - only to see that all
static css files etc are also missing.
Before I go ahead and copy those from the production vm, I need to know
what I am doing wrong?
Why am I missing all these essential files when I follow the
instructions on geonode-project
<https://github.com/geonode/geonode-project> and based my project on the
The local geonode package is located at
"my_geonode/venv/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/geonode/" and doesn't
contain any templates while the one on the procution vm does - why are
those packages not identical - I assume they are both installed using
pip? (I know the local one is while the vm one was installed indirectly
with "apt-get install geonode").
