[GeoNode-devel] Custom geonode project installation

Hi Dimitris,

it sounds you´re a bit puzzled between 'geonode core‘ and geonode-project.

To understand better see whats happening with geonode-project:

It installs `geonode core` as dependency:
further loads/overwrites it´s settings:

Doing so we can overwrite things like templates etc. in Geonode-Project without touching
core files. 

As a rule of thumb, if you´d like to commit changes to geonode core, create a fork of the upstream
repository, do your changes and create a PR.

I think in your case – as you´d like to modify your specific version – start by creating a geonode 
project as described here (and ignore the first 'geonode core' dev setup):

I hope I did not misunderstood your question.
Happy geonod’ ing.

– Toni

> Hello all,
> I am trying following the instructions from this workshop (
> http://geonode.org/dev-workshop/#/2) in order to install GeoNode and a
> GeoNode project. I have installed GeoNode in dev mode using a python
> virtualenv + django development server method.
> Then I follow the instructions in order to create a geonode-project as
> following:
>   1. cd ./geonode
>   2. django-admin.py startproject wfp_geonode --template=
>   https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode-project/archive/master.zip -e
>   py,rst,json,yml,ini,env,sample -n Dockerfile wfp_geonode  (I executed
>   this command without includong: -n Dockerfile wfp_geonode)
>   3. workon geonode
>   4. cd wfp_geonode
>   5. pip install -e wfp_geonode
>   6. cd ../geonode
>   7. DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=wfp_geonode.local_settings paver start
> But when I actually run the command, I get the below command. If I am not
> wrong, I remember, that I can not use geonode-project aside with a geonode
> dev installation but this is not quite clear in the above workshop
> presentation (see above link).
> Did anyone had similar issues? Should I install a geonode for production
> and use the geonode-project then?
