For Linux and OSX users, run these commands:
First clone the project locally and then go into the directory
$ git clone https://github.com/AcademicsToday/py-academicstoday.git $ cd py-academicstoday
Setup our virtual environment
(OSX) $ python3 -m venv env (Linux) $ virtualenv env
Now lets activate virtual environment
$ source env/bin/activate
OSX USERS ONLY: If you are using ‘Postgres.app’, you’ll need to have pg_config setup in your $PATH. If you already have set this up, skip this step, else simply run this command in the console to set the path manually.
$ export PATH="/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/Versions/9.4/bin:$PATH"
Now lets install the libraries this project depends on.
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
We are almost done! Just follow these instructions and the database will be setup for the application to use.
Load up your postgres and enter the console. Then to create our database, enter:

To confirm it was created, run this line, you should see the database in the output
Enter the database
# \c academicstoday_db
If you haven’t created an administrator for your previous projects, create one now by entering:
# CREATE USER django WITH PASSWORD '123password'; # GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE academicstoday_db to django;
Your database "academicstoday_db" is now setup with an admin user account "django" using the passowrd "123password”.
