Build Status Coverage Status

Important notice when upgrading from any release older than 2.020.18

Prior to release 2.020.18, this project (KPI) and KoBoCAT both shared a common Postgres database. They now each have their own. If you are upgrading an existing single-database installation, you must follow these instructions to migrate the KPI tables to a new database and adjust your configuration appropriately.

If you do not want to upgrade at this time, please use the shared-database-obsolete branch instead.

Python Dependencies

Python dependencies are managed with pip-compile and pip-sync from the pip-tools package. The dependencies are listed in dependencies/pip/, with core requirements in dependencies/pip/ You may use pip directly with one of the compiled dependencies/pip/*.txt files, but consider using instead the pip-sync. Do not add new dependencies directly to the compiled dependencies/pip/*.txt files; instead, update the relevant the source dependencies/pip/*.in file(s), and execute make pip_compile after any changes. You can pass arguments to pip-compile with e.g. make pip_compile ARGS='--upgrade-package=xlwt'. To force building, use make --always-make ....

Ubuntu 16.04 apt Dependencies

apt dependencies for Ubuntu 16.04 are listed in dependencies/apt_requirements.txt and can be installed with e.g. apt-get install $(cat dependencies/apt_requirements.txt).

Downloading and compiling the translations


Results from the tags and api/v2/assets endpoints can be filtered by a Boolean query specified in the q parameter. For example: api/v2/assets?q=owner__username:meg AND name__icontains:quixotic would return assets whose owner has the username "meg" (case sensitive) and whose name contains "quixotic" anywhere (case insensitive). For more details about the syntax, see the documentation at the top of kpi/utils/query_parser/

Admin reports

There are several types of data reports available to superusers.

Django Admin Interface

As this is a Django project, you may find the admin panel at <kpi base url>/admin useful, e.g. to configure user accounts or log in as other users without knowing their passwords. You must use a superuser account to access the admin panel.


All project icons are kept in jsapp/svg-icons/. Adding new icon requires adding new svg file here and regenerating icons with npm run generate-icons. Filenames are used for icon font classnames, e.g. .k-icon-arrow-last for arrow-last.svg (please use kebab-case). You can see all available icons by running npm run show-icons - it will open a list in your browser.
