Appeal for working installation instructions for Commcare

Dear all,

This is a direct appeal to everyone for working installation instructions
for Commcare. I have tried all methods (manual, docker and ansible) and
none is working. The docker was the closest that works however, there is no
data in reports.

I am a developer with over 10 years experience and contributed code to
DHIS, apache and other projects so I have the technical background to do
this however, the instructions are either dangerously incomplete or out of
date.

I have studied the source code however, there is a limit to what I can do
with limited time or lack of documentation.

Thanks for your help,

Ian

Hi Ian

The reports work off Elasticsearch. In order to get data into ES you need
to run a background service called ‘pillowtop’. The steps for doing this
are in the readme but I’ll copy them here for your convenience:

run the Django server

$ ./manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000

Keeps elasticsearch index in sync

$ ./manage.py run_ptop --all

Please feel free to contribute any changes or additions to the
documentation via a pull request on GitHub.
