Search and consult CADA advices

Project Description

A simplistic interface to search and consult CADA advices.

This is the engine behing


CADA has been tested on Python 2.7, MongoDB 2.4+ and ElasticSearch 1.1.

The ElasticSearch ICU Analysis plugin is required.

You can install it with:

bin/plugin -install elasticsearch/elasticsearch-analysis-icu/2.1.0


You can install Cada with pip:

$ pip install cada

or with easy_install:

$ easy_install cada

You need to create the cada working directory, designed by $HOME in this documentation:

$ mkdir -p $HOME && cd $HOME
$ vim cada.cfg  # See configuration
$ wget -O data.csv
$ cada load data.csv  # Load initial data
$ cada static  # Optionnal: collect static assets for proper caching
$ cada runserver


All configuration is done trhough the cada.cfg file in $HOME. It’s basically a Python file with constants defined in it:

  • SERVER_NAME: the public server name. Mainly used in emails.
  • SECRET_KEY: the common crypto hash.Used for session by exemple.
  • ELASTICSEARCH_URL: the ElasticSearch server URL in host:port format. Default to localhost:9200 if not set
  • MONGODB_SETTINGS: a dictionnary to configure MongoDB. Default to {'DB': 'cada'}. See the official flask-mongoengine documentation for more details.


Mail server configuration is done through the following variables:

  • MAIL_SERVER: SMTP server hostname. Default to localhost.
  • MAIL_PORT: SMTP server port. Default to 25.
  • MAIL_USE_TLS: activate TLS. Default to False.
  • MAIL_USE_SSL: activate SSL. Default to False.
  • MAIL_USERNAME: optionnal SMTP server username.
  • MAIL_PASSWORD: optionnal SMTP server password.
  • MAIL_DEFAULT_SENDER: Sender email used for mailings. Default to cada@localhost.
  • ANON_ALERT_MAIL: destination mail for anonimysation alerts. Default to cada.alert@localhost.

See the official Flask-Mail documentation for more details.


There is an optionnal support for Sentry. You need to install the required dependencies:

$ pip install raven[flask]
# Or, to install it with cada
$ pip install cada[sentry]

You need to add your Sentry DSN to the configuration
