The open source CMS for the Cultural Sector

Get GLAMkit

Installation

  1. With Docker installed and running, create a new project template with:

    $ bash <(curl -Ls https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ic-labs/django-icekit/master/icekit/bin/startproject.sh) [destination_dir]
    

    This script will create a new project in a directory named <project_name> in the current working directory (or [destination_dir]), ready to hack on.

  2. Run the project:

    $ cd <project_name>
    $ docker-compose build --pull
    $ docker-compose up
    

    This will ensure all dependencies are installed and up to date, and will run a development server. Watch for the admin account credentials that get created on first run.

  3. That's it! Open your new GLAMkit site in a browser:

    http://<project_name>.lvh.me:8000
    

    *.lvh.me is a wildcard DNS that maps to 127.0.0.1
