Black Code Climate Build Status Coverage Status Updates

Pets is a website where people can publish lost pets and pets available for adoption.

Users can create an account with a username and password, or they can use their Twitter and Facebook to login. You can also extend it to use other providers as it's backed by python-social-auth.

Images uploaded by users are cropped with easy-thumbnails to improve the site performance.



Fork and clone the repository

First fork the project using GitHub, than clone it locally:

git clone<username>/pets.git
cd pets

Configure your instance

The project configuration uses python-decouple to dynamically read environment variables and .env files.

If you want, you can get started by copying contrib/sample-env as .env:

cp contrib/sample-env pets/.env

Then you have to set following variables:

Basic Django settings


Email configuration


If you want to login via social media, you will have to create apps as a developer at Facebook and/or Twitter. Once you're done, set the app secret and app key for each of them:

Other dependencies

Install Pillow dependencies

As Pets uses Pillow, some extra packages are needed. In a Debian based Linux this should do the job:

sudo apt-get install python-dev python3.x-dev libjpeg8-dev

Download ChromeDriver

You just need to download and unzip the latest ChromeDriver and place it somewhere in your search path.

Install Python packages

You can install the required packages with pipenv.

pipenv install --dev


Execute all tests, it will take some minutes.

cd pets
python test

Please, do not commit changes if any test fails. Ask for help here instead.
