Obtaining the app directoryΒΆ

The next step is to create the rdmo-app directory by cloning the corresponding repository into the home directory of you rdmo user:

git clone https://github.com/rdmorganiser/rdmo-app

Note that this is not the main rdmo repository, only the configuration files. Inside this directory, you will find:

  • a config directory, containing the main settings of your RDMO installation,
  • a requirements directory, containing shortcuts to install the different mandatory and optional dependencies, and
  • a manage.py script, which is the main way to interact with your RDMO installation on the command line. Most of the following steps will use this script.

The rdmo-app directory corresponds to a project in Django terms.
