CADA has been tested on Python 2.7, MongoDB 2.4+ and ElasticSearch 1.1.

The ElasticSearch ICU Analysis plugin is required.

You can install it with:

bin/plugin -install elasticsearch/elasticsearch-analysis-icu/2.1.0


You can install Cada with pip:

$ pip install cada

or with easy_install:

$ easy_install cada

You need to create the cada working directory, designed by $HOME in this documentation:

$ mkdir -p $HOME && cd $HOME
$ vim cada.cfg  # See configuration
$ wget -O data.csv
$ cada load data.csv  # Load initial data
$ cada static  # Optionnal: collect static assets for proper caching
$ cada runserver


All configuration is done trhough the cada.cfg file in $HOME. It’s basically a Python file with constants defined in it:

  • SERVER_NAME: the public server name. Mainly used in emails.
  • SECRET_KEY: the common crypto hash.Used for session by exemple.
  • ELASTICSEARCH_URL: the ElasticSearch server URL in host:port format. Default to localhost:9200 if not set

  • MAIL_SERVER: SMTP server hostname. Default to localhost.
