This guide assumes a 64-bit installation of Windows.
Before you are ready to run Saleor you will need additional software installed on your computer.
Download the latest 3.7 Windows installer from the Python download page and follow the instructions.
Make sure that “Add Python 3.7 to PATH” is checked.
Version 10 or later is required. Download the Windows installer from the Node.js downloads page.
Make sure that “Add to PATH” is selected.
Saleor needs PostgreSQL version 9.4 or above to work. Get the Windows installer from the project’s download page.
Make sure you keep track of the password you set for the administration account during installation.
Download the 64-bit Windows installer.
Make sure that “*Set up PATH environment variable to include GTK+” is selected.
Please download and install the latest version of the Build Tools for Visual Studio.
All commands need to be performed in either PowerShell or a Command Shell.
1. Clone the repository (replace the URL with your own fork where needed)
git clone https://github.com/mirumee/saleor.git
2. Enter the directory
3. Install all dependencies
We strongly recommend creating a virtual environment before installing any Python packages.
python -m pip install -r requirements.txt
SECRET_KEY environment variable
We try to provide usable default values for all of the settings. We’ve decided not to provide a default for
SECRET_KEY as we fear someone would inevitably ship a project with the default value left in code.
env:SECRET_KEY = "<mysecretkey>"
Secret key should be a unique string only your team knows. Running code with a known
SECRET_KEYdefeats many of Django’s security protections, and can lead to privilege escalation and remote code execution vulnerabilities. Consult Django’s documentation for details.
5. Create a PostgreSQL user
Use the pgAdmin tool that came with your PostgreSQL installation to create a database user for your store.
Unless configured otherwise the store will use
saleor as both username and password. Remember to give your user the
SUPERUSER privilege so it can create databases and database extensions.
6. Create a PostgreSQL database
See PostgreSQL’s createdb command for details.
Database name is extracted from the
DATABASE_URLenvironment variable. If absent it defaults to
7. Prepare the database
python manage.py migrate
This command will need to be able to create a database and some database extensions. If you get an error related to these make sure you’ve properly assigned your user
8. Install front-end dependencies
If this step fails go back and make sure you’re using new enough version of Node.js.
9. Prepare front-end assets
npm run build-assets
10. Compile e-mails
npm run build-emails
11. Start the development server:
python manage.py runserver
