Open Lobby Server
# Open Lobby Server
Open Lobby is register of lobby meetings. It’s being developed for and tested on [Czech Pirate Party](https://www.pirati.cz) but later it may be used by any party, organization, agency, …
_Open Lobby is in early beta version now. Not for production use._
This is core of the register - server with [GraphQL API](http://graphql.org). Over API are connected application interfaces. Default web application is available at [openlobby/openlobby-app](https://github.com/openlobby/openlobby-app).
Register is built on top of [Elasticsearch](https://www.elastic.co/products/elasticsearch). For now it’s intended for search in Czech language with custom Czech text analyzer. There is prepared Elasticsearch Docker container with Czech support at [openlobby/openlobby-es-czech](https://github.com/openlobby/openlobby-es-czech).
- Configuration is done by environment variables:
- DEBUG - Set to any value to turn on debug mode. Don’t use in production!
- SECRET_KEY - long random secret string (required if not in debug mode)
- DATABASE_DSN - DSN of PostgreSQL database (default: postgresql://db:db@localhost:5432/openlobby)
- ELASTICSEARCH_DSN - DSN of Elasticsearch cluster (default: http://localhost:9200)
- SITE_NAME - site name for OpenID authentication (default: Open Lobby)
- ES_INDEX - Elasticsearch indices prefix (default: openlobby)
- REDIRECT_URI - redirect URI used in OpenID Connect authentication (default: http://localhost:8010/login-redirect)
- put there address where you run server, but keep there /login-redirect
- this is the Redirect URI for static client registration at OpenID Provider
### Login shortcuts aka preregistered OpenID Clients
Some OpenID Providers does not allow dynamic client registration. You can still use them. Register client with REDIRECT_URI and save client’s credentials into database. You can do it in admin interface running at /admin. It’s standard Django admin (create superuser for yourself like ./manage.py createsuperuser).
Docker image is at Docker Hub [openlobby/openlobby-server](https://hub.docker.com/r/openlobby/openlobby-server/). It exposes server on port 8010. You should provide it environment variables for configuration (at least SECRET_KEY).
Demo of Open Lobby with instructions is in repository [openlobby/demo](https://github.com/openlobby/demo).
## Local run and development
You need to have Python 3 installed.
Run PostgreSQL database on localhost:5432 with user db, password db and database openlobby. You can provide different address in environment variable DATABASE_DSN.
Run Elasticsearch server [openlobby/openlobby-es-czech](https://github.com/openlobby/openlobby-es-czech) on http://localhost:9200. You can provide different address in environment variable ELASTICSEARCH_DSN.
### Local run
Clone this repository and run:
- make init-env - prepares Python virtualenv in dir .env
- source .env/bin/activate - activates virtualenv
- make install - installs requirements and server in development mode
- make migrate - runs database migrations and rebuilds Elasticsearch index
- make run - runs development server on port 8010
Now you can use GraphQL API endpoint and GraphiQL web interface at http://localhost:8010/graphql
Next time you can just do steps 2 and 5.
For full test suite run you have to provide OpenID Provider issuer URL which allows client registration. For example you can run Keycloak sever locally: docker run -e KEYCLOAK_USER=admin -e KEYCLOAK_PASSWORD=pass -p 8080:8080 –rm jboss/keycloak
Login into Keycloak admin console http://localhost:8080/auth/admin/ (as admin/pass) and go to Realm Settings -> Client Registration -> Client Registration Policies -> Trusted Hosts. There add localhost to “Trusted Hosts”, turn off “Host Sending Client Registration Request Must Match” and save it.
Now run: pytest –issuer=http://localhost:8080/auth/realms/master
