# Releasing
## Creating a release (git)
Step by step, how to create a release:
- checkout from `dev`
- update the changelog to reflect the release date, etc.
- commit
- create a merge request into `dev`
- merge it
- create a merge request from `dev` in `master`
- then merge it
- tag the release commit appropriately
- You are good to go :tada:
## Deploying (for UTC)
?> Before doing so you should have added a `Site Information` from [the website admin]( as there is gonna be some downtime.
### Step-by-step
Connect to the REX-DRI VM
!> :warning: In the current setup, you need to sudo every command
- Down the website
cd ~/rex-dri
make down_prod
- Clean the useless docker volumes
# Check if you have randomly named volumes:
docker volume ls
# rm ONLY the one with random names
# docker volume rm ...
- It's always a good idea to keep a VM up-to-date
service docker stop
apt udpate
apt upgrade
service docker start
- Restart the API on top of the DSI data base
cd api-db-utc
make prod
# Check it's running
curl localhost:8083/api/courses/chehabfl
- Update the rex-dri repository
cd ~/rex-dri
git pull
# You should be on the master branch
git status
- Restart the website
# this will take several minutes to execute
# the frontend is going to be built, etc.
make prod
- Update the remote data (to check that this important part works)
sudo make shell_backend_prod
# then
./ update_external_data all
- Clean the unused docker images (if a new one was pulled)
docker images
# rm the new unused images
# docker rmi
### Post deployment
- [ ] Make sure auto-update works the next day
- [ ] Check `/app/my/exchanges/` reload button is working
## Deploying (other)
### Step-by-step
Deploying the app is fairly simple: all you need is `docker` and `docker-compose` installed.
If you don't know how to install them, you should look in [this section](GettingStarted/ of the documentation.
- Once this is done clone the repository of the project.
- Then, run `make setup` (this will generate the required `.env` files) and set their correct values in both `server/envs` directory and `.env` (at the root of the repo -- for the map to work appropriately). Take care especially with the files `django.env` and `external_data.env`.
- Once this is done, you can simply run `make prod` and then `make init_dev_data` (TODO create one for prod) to get going fast.
`make prod` will start all the services described in `` (in the `server` directory).
