StartinBlox Manager

Project description

Startin'Blox Manager


You will need both Python3 and Pip3 installed. You can follow this article if you don't konw where to start.

Before diving in Startin' Blox manager, just make sure you got the last version of pip by upgrading it:

sudo pip3 install --upgrade pip

Then install the sib command line:

$ pip3 install --user -U sib-manager


  • This install the sib program in the user context. sib doesn't need system priveleges
  • In some distribution the system can't find the user programs. In that case you have to add it manually, for example, by adding export PATH=$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH in your ~/.bashrc.

Get started with a new project

sib supports installation inside venv

Create a new project:

$ sib startproject myproject
$ cd myproject


  • The project name must be a valid python package name (no dashes).

Configure the modules you want to use in packages.yml:

  djangoldp_project: djangoldp_project
  oidc_provider:     django-oidc-provider

Run the installation:

$ sib install myproject

And launch it locally !

$ python3 runserver

The administration interface is available at http://localhost:8000/admin/ with default admin user and password.


$ sib --help
Usage: sib [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Startin'Blox installer

sib manager can be used to deploy local development and production instances. Whereas a development instance relies on testing components as a sqlite database and comes with default configuration, a production instance needs more parameters to configure the postgresql database.


Get the last unreleased version of the project:

$ pip3 install --user -U git+

Test strategy

To test:

  • create superuser twice
  • add a package after install and update
  • install without packages

Test production setup with postgres:

# docker network create sib
# docker run --rm --network sib --name db -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=test -d postgres
# docker run --rm --network sib -p -v $PWD:/code -it python:3.6 bash
# pip install -e .[dev]
# sib startproject --production --db-host db --db-name postgres --db-user postgres --db-pass test -m djangoldp_project -m oidc_provider:django-oidc-provider myproject /tmp/test-sib-docker
# sib initproject --production --admin-name admin --admin-email 'something' --admin-pass admin myproject /tmp/test-sib-docker
# cd /tmp/test-sib-docker/
# python runserver
