Hiccup is intended to help Fairphone to assess the stability of the Fairphones in the field. The Server side consists of two django projects: crashreports and crashreports_stats. The former implements the API endpoints for collecting crash reports, while the later implements the front-end and some endpoints to access statics.
Python 3.6 is the only supported python version for the server code. Use this version for development. It is the default version in Ubuntu 18.04, if you run another OS, it is still possible to get python 3.6 (see for example https://askubuntu.com/a/865569).
Make sure you have installed
$ sudo apt install python3 virtualenv libffi-dev
Clone Hiccup server and install it locally:
$ git clone ssh://$USER@review.fairphone.software:29418/tools/hiccup/hiccup-server $ cd hiccup-server $ virtualenv -p python3.6 .venv/hiccupenv $ source .venv/hiccupenv/bin/activate (hiccupenv) $ pip install -e .
When using a virtualenv with pyenv (e.g. to get python3.6 on Ubuntu 16.04), the python executable needs to be explicitly named to make tox work (see https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv-virtualenv/issues/202#issuecomment-284728205).
pyenv virtualenv -p python3.6 <installed-python-version> hiccupenv
i.e., because I have compiled python 3.6.6:
pyenv virtualenv -p python3.6 3.6.6 hiccupenv
The Hiccup server relies on a PostgreSQL database.
To set up a database server, you can install the following package:
(hiccupenv) $ sudo apt install postgresql
Then create a user and database:
(hiccupenv) $ sudo service postgresql start (hiccupenv) $ sudo -u postgres createuser $USER --createdb (hiccupenv) $ sudo -u postgres createdb -O $USER $USER
The settings for accessing the PostgreSQL server can be found in
hiccup/settings.py (see the
DATABASES setting). When both the postgresql server and the Hiccup server are running on the same machine and you are using the same user that you used for creating the database for running the server, the default settings should be fine. For all other cases a
local_settings.py file can be created in the project root directory to overwrite the default settings.
Test that the configuration is correct:
(hiccupenv) $ python manage.py test
See the end of the next section to add a super-user.
For accessing the statistics pages, Hiccup uses Django allauth for single sign on authentication with Google. Everybody with an email address issued by Fairphone is allowed to create an account.
This step has to be run before running the migrations.
In you local
local_settings.py, overwrite the values for
SOCIALACCOUNT_GOOGLE_SECRET with the correct values. These credentials can be created at the Google developers console.
The first time you run the server, the database will be empty and the model migrations have yet to happen:
(hiccupenv) $ python manage.py migrate
Then, at any later point, start the local server:
(hiccupenv) $ python manage.py runserver ... Starting development server at http://127.0.0.1:8000/ ...
The API is available at
localhost:8000/hiccup/ and the web-front-end at
The Django admin web-front-end is at
If you plan to browse through the Django admin web-front-end (
localhost:8000/hiccup/admin), you will need a super-user (admin) account:
(hiccupenv) $ python manage.py createsuperuser ... Superuser created successfully.
To browse through the Hiccup front-end (
localhost:8000/hiccup_stats/), the account you will identify with should belong to the group
Run the following command or perform the manual steps below:
python manage.py shell -c " from django.contrib.auth.models import Group, User admin = User.objects.get(username='admin') stats_group = Group.objects.get(name='FairphoneSoftwareTeam') stats_group.user_set.add(admin) "
http://localhost:8000/hiccup/admin/auth/user/and add your super-user to the 'FairphoneSoftwareTeam' group.
The Hiccup REST API documentation is created automatically using drf_yasg and swagger2markup.
It can be generated using tox:
(hiccupenv) $ tox -e docs
The generated documentation file can be found under
It is also possible to create an HTML version of the docs. Make sure you have asciidoctor installed:
(hiccupenv) $ sudo apt install asciidoctor
Then generate the html docs using tox:
(hiccupenv) $ tox -e docs-html
The generated documentation file can be found under
We follow the Google Python Style Guide.
We use tox to both test and validate the code quality:
(hiccupenv) $ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
tox to test your changes in the supported environments:
(hiccupenv) $ tox
To get an overview of the test coverage run:
(hiccupenv) $ tox -e coverage
To generate HTML coverage reports (saved to
(hiccupenv) $ tox -e coverage-html
To run the linters (flake8 and pylint) on all files:
(hiccupenv) $ tox -e linters
To run flake8 on only the diff with upstream:
(hiccupenv) $ git diff origin/master ./**/*py | flake8 --diff
We use the black formatter to check the format of the code. To format a single file in place run:
(hiccupenv) $ black file.py
To run the formatter over all python files run:
(hiccupenv) $ git ls-files '*.py' | xargs black
Before committing a patchset, you are kindly asked to run the linting tools (flake8 and pylint) and format the code. For both linters and formatter, git pre-commit hooks can be set up. To activate, copy the pre-commit script that calls all scripts in
tools/hooks/pre-commit.d to the
.git/hooks folder and make it executable:
(hiccupenv) $ cp tools/hooks/pre-commit .git/hooks/pre-commit (hiccupenv) $ chmod +x .git/hooks/pre-commit
To prevent commits when the flake8 check fails the strict option can be set to true:
(hiccupenv) $ git config --bool flake8.strict true
New changes should be pushed for review to the
master branch. Every version that is merged into the
master branch has to be buildable.
The production server is fetching its code from the public mirror of the project.
To update the production server, new changes have to be pulled into the public project and the server should be redeployed using the corresponding ansible playbook.
