Project description

# PIT App

Django app with web forms to assist with the collection of data for Point-in-Time (PIT) counts for the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) sent to the U.S. Congress. You can view these annual reports at: https://www.hudexchange.info/homelessness-assistance/ahar

Examples PDFs of the forms:

## Running Locally The app can be run locally using docker and docker-compose. There are instructions on how to install docker [here](https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/ubuntu/) and docker-compose [here](https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/). Once docker-compose is installed you can run the app using the following commands:

docker-compose up –build

This will rebuild the docker images to the latest versions, bring up a postgres database locally, run Django migration scripts on that database, and then finally start the Django app. The app should now be available locally at http://127.0.0.1:8000.

## Database connection This app uses the envdot library to retrieve the configuration needed to point to a database to run the Django app on. By default the database is configured to use a database brought up when run through docker-compose. You must set the following environment variables when running through any other environment to point to the proper database:

  • DATABASE_ENGINE

  • DATABASE_NAME

  • DATABASE_USER

  • DATABASE_PASSWORD

  • DATABASE_HOST

  • DATABASE_PORT

You can set these all in a single command like so, replacing XXX with the correct value for your database:

DATABASE_ENGINE=XXX DATABASE_NAME=XXX DATABASE_USER=XXX DATABASE_PASSWORD=XXX DATABASE_HOST=XXX DATABASE_PORT=XXX python3 manage.py runserver
