webui plugin for Tutor

Project description

This is a plugin for Tutor that allows you to manage a Tutor-powered Open edX installation from a browser – a web user interface! In other words, it is no longer necessary to SSH to a remote server to manage a running instance.


pip install tutor-webui


Enable the plugin:

tutor plugins enable webui

Start the web user interface:

tutor webui start

You can then access the interface at http://localhost:3737, or http://youserverurl:3737.

All tutor commands can be executed from this web UI: you just don’t need to prefix the commands with tutor. For instance, to deploy a local Open edX instance, run:

local quickstart

instead of tutor local quickstart.


WARNING Once you launch the web UI, it is accessible by everyone, which means that your Open edX platform is at risk. If you are planning to leave the web UI up for a long time, you should setup a user and password for authentication:

tutor webui configure
