Demo: This domain is being used temporarily as a demo so expect it to change. Source: ## Features - Built with Bootstrap 3. - Markdown (w/ HTML Support). - Syntax highlighting (Ace Editor). - Live preview. - Collaboration (TogetherJS / Firepad). - Drafts saved to local storage. - Handlebars for templates and logic. ## Screenshots [<img src="" width=340 />](;[<img width=340 src="" />](;[<img width=340 src="" />](;[<img width=340 src="" />](;[<img width=340 src="" />](;[<img width=340 src="" />]( ## Requirements - Python 2.7 ### Optional - Nginx (if you want proxy requests, this is recommended). - Memcached or Redis, default is memonization. - MariaDB, MySQL, Postgresql, or another database supported by SQLAlchemy, default is sqlite. Anon or single user does not require a database. ## Installation ### Requirements installation You will need the following packages to get started: #### Ubuntu sudo apt-get install -y python-pip python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev libffi-dev libyaml-dev libssl-dev libsasl2-dev libldap2-dev #### CentOS / RHEL yum install -y python-pip python-devel.x86_64 libxslt-devel.x86_64 libxml2-devel.x86_64 libffi-devel.x86_64 libyaml-devel.x86_64 libxslt-devel.x86_64 zlib-devel.x86_64 openssl-devel.x86_64 openldap2-devel cyrus-sasl-devel python-pbr gcc #### OSX / Windows This app is designed for Linux and I recommend using Vagrant to install on OSX or Windows. ### Realms Wiki installation via PyPI The easiest way. Install it using Python Package Index: pip install realms-wiki ### Realms Wiki installation via Git #### Ubuntu git clone cd realms-wiki sudo apt-get install -y software-properties-common python-software-properties # If using Ubuntu 14.04, get nodejs from this PPA: #sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:chris-lea/node.js #sudo apt-get update # If using Ubuntu 16.04, get nodejs, nodejs-legacy, and npm from # the official repo. Also, get virtualenv: sudo apt-get install -y npm nodejs-legacy virtualenv sudo apt-get install -y nodejs python-pip python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev libffi-dev libyaml-dev libssl-dev libsasl2-dev libldap2-dev sudo npm install -g bower bower install virtualenv .venv source .venv/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.txt realms-wiki start NodeJS is required for installing [bower]( and it's used for pulling front end dependencies. ### Realms Wiki via Vagrant Vagrantfile is included for development or running locally. To get started with Vagrant, download and install Vagrant and VirtualBox for your platform with the links provided: - - Then execute the following in the terminal: git clone cd realms-wiki vagrant up Check []( to make sure it's running. ### Realms Wiki via Docker Make sure you have docker installed. Here is an example run command, it will pull the image from docker hub initially. docker run --name realms-wiki -p 5000:5000 -d realms/realms-wiki You can build your own image if you want. Mine is based off The Dockerfile is located in [docker/Dockerfile](docker/Dockerfile) `realms/base` just creates the deploy user. ## Config and Setup You should be able to run the wiki without configuration using the default config values. You may want to customize your app and the easiest way is the setup command: realms-wiki setup This will ask you questions and create a `realms-wiki.json` file. You can manually edit this file as well. Any config value set in `realms-wiki.json` will override values set in `realms/config/`. ### Nginx Setup sudo apt-get install -y nginx Create a file called `realms.conf` in `/etc/nginx/conf.d` sudo nano /etc/nginx/conf.d/realms.conf Put the following sample configuration in that file: server { listen 80; # Your domain here server_name; # Settings to by-pass for static files location ^~ /static/ { # Example: root /full/path/to/realms/; } location / { proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; proxy_set_header Host $http_host; proxy_pass; proxy_redirect off; } } Test Nginx config: sudo nginx -t Reload Nginx: sudo service nginx reload ### Apache + mod_wsgi Setup sudo apt-get install -y apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi Create a virtual host configuration in `/etc/apache2/sites-available/realms_vhost` <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName WSGIDaemonProcess realms_wsgi display-name=%{GROUP} WSGIProcessGroup realms_wsgi WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/my-realms-dir/ Alias /static /full/path/to/realms/static </VirtualHost> Create `/var/www/my-realms-dir/` import os import site # Uncomment the following lines if you are using a virtual environment # ---------------------------------- # Enter path to your virtualenv's site-packages directory # VENV_SITE_DIR = ".venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages" # PROJECT_ROOT = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__)) # site.addsitedir(os.path.abspath(os.path.join(PROJECT_ROOT, VENV_SITE_DIR))) # ---------------------------------- from realms import create_app application = create_app() Enable the virtual host: sudo a2ensite realms_vhost Test your configuration: apache2ctl configtest Reload apache: sudo service apache2 reload ### MySQL Setup sudo apt-get install -y mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient-dev realms-wiki pip install python-memcached ### MariaDB Setup sudo apt-get install -y mariadb-server mariadb-client libmariadbclient-dev realms-wiki pip install MySQL-Python ### Postgres Setup sudo apt-get install -y libpq-dev postgresql postgresql-contrib postgresql-client realms-wiki pip install psycopg2 _Don't forget to create your database._ ## Search Realms wiki comes with basic search capabilities, however this is not recommended for large wikis or if you require more advanced search capabilities. We currently support Elasticsearch and Whoosh as alternative backend. ### Elasticsearch Setup There are multiple ways to install/run Elasticsearch. An easy way is to use your their repositories. **apt** wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elasticsearch.list apt-get update && apt-get install elasticsearch For `yum` instructions or more details, follow the link below: **Configuring Elasticsearch** In your Realms Config, have the following options set: "SEARCH_TYPE": "elasticsearch" "ELASTICSEARCH_URL": "" Optionally, also set the following option to configure which fields are searchable: "ELASTICSEARCH_FIELDS": ["name"] Allowable values are `"name"`, `"content"`, `"username"`, `"message"`. The default is `["name"]`. ### Whoosh Setup Simply install Whoosh to your Python environment, e.g. pip install Whoosh **Configuring Whoosh** To use Whoosh, set the following in your Realms config: "SEARCH_TYPE": "whoosh" "WHOOSH_INDEX": "/path/to/your/whoosh/index" "WHOOSH_LANGUAGE": "en" WHOOSH_INDEX has to be a path readable and writeable by Realm's user. It will be created automatically if it doesn't exist. Whoosh is set up to use language optimization, so set WHOOSH_LANGUAGE to the language used in your wiki. For available languages, check `whoosh.lang.languages`. If your language is not supported, Realms will fall back to a simple text analyzer. ## Authentication ### Local Local default will be done using a backend database as defined in the config. To disable local authentication, put the following your config. "AUTH_LOCAL_ENABLE": false ### LDAP (beta) Realms can authenticate users with a LDAP directory. It supports "direct bind" and "bind by search". Use these examples as a guide and place it in your realms-wiki.json config. An optional KEY_MAP can be used to map LDAP attributes to the Realms user object. #### "Bind by search" example In this example, BIND_DN and BIND_AUTH are used to bind to the LDAP directory (omit them for anonymous bind). After binding, a LDAP SEARCH is performed using the template "USER_SEARCH". In this template, `%(username)s` is the UserID that the user entered in the Realms authentication form. If the user is found in LDAP, a final BIND is tried with his credentials to check the password. "LDAP": { "URI": "ldap://", "BIND_DN": "cn=realms,ou=apps,dc=realms,dc=io", "BIND_AUTH": "wlvksdfknv:dsqc9893", "USER_SEARCH": {"base": "ou=users, dc=realms,dc=io", "filter": "(uid=%(username)s)"}, "KEY_MAP": { "username": "cn", "email": "mail" } } #### "Direct bind" example Here authentication is just a simple BIND using the user's credentials. The user DN is given by the BIND_DN template. In this template, `%(username)s` is the UserID that the user entered in the Realms authentication form. "LDAP": { "URI": "ldap://", "BIND_DN": "uid=%(username)s,ou=People,dc=realms,dc=io", "KEY_MAP": { "username": "cn", "email": "mail", } } #### LDAP/TLS (for brevity we don't repeat the Bind By Search configurations or the KEY_MAP, but they can be used with TLS too) LDAP over TLS is typically done like this: "LDAP": { "URI": "ldaps://", "BIND_DN": "uid=%(username)s,ou=People,dc=realms,dc=io", "TLS_OPTIONS": { "CA_CERTS_FILE": "PATH TO THE CERTIFICATE PEM OF THE AUTHORITY THAT SIGNED THE LDAP SERVER CERTIFICATE" } } If the LDAP server certificate has been emitted by an authority that's trusted at system-level (and your Python version is not too old), it might be possible to omit `CA_CERTS_FILE`. If you don't want Realms to validate at all the LDAP server certificate (don't do that in production), pass an additional VALIDATE option: "LDAP": { "URI": "ldaps://", "BIND_DN": "uid=%(username)s,ou=People,dc=realms,dc=io", "TLS_OPTIONS": { "VALIDATE": "NONE" } } #### LDAP with START_TLS It is similar to LDAP/TLS. Just add a START_TLS option: "LDAP": { "URI": "ldap://", "BIND_DN": "uid=%(username)s,ou=People,dc=realms,dc=io", "CA_CERTS_FILE": "PATH TO THE CERTIFICATE PEM OF THE AUTHORITY THAT SIGNED THE LDAP SERVER CERTIFICATE", "TLS_OPTIONS": { "CA_CERTS_FILE": "PATH TO THE CERTIFICATE PEM OF THE AUTHORITY THAT SIGNED THE LDAP SERVER CERTIFICATE" } "START_TLS": true } The VALIDATE option can be used here too. #### Configuration change for TLS Please note that the TLS/START_TLS configuration changed from previous versions of Realms. The old way that was from flask-ldap-login using LDAP options like `OPT_X_TLS_REQUIRE_CERT` does not work anymore. ### OAuth (beta) Realms currently supports Github, Twitter, Facebook and Google. Each provider requires a key and secret. Put them in your `realms-wiki.json` config file. Use the example below. "OAUTH": { "twitter": { "key": "", "secret": "" }, "github": { "key": "", "secret": "" }, "google": { "key": "", "secret": "", "domain": "" # this is optional if you want to restrict to a GSuite domain } ### Authentication by reverse proxy If you configured realms behind a reverse-proxy or a single-sign-on, it is possible to delegate authentication to the proxy. "AUTH_PROXY": true Note: of course with that setup you must ensure that **Realms is only accessible through the proxy**. Example Nginx configuration: location / { auth_basic "Restricted"; auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/.htpasswd; proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; proxy_set_header Host $http_host; proxy_set_header REMOTE_USER $remote_user; proxy_pass; proxy_redirect off; } By default, Realms will look for the user ID in `REMOTE_USER` HTTP header. You can specify another header name with: "AUTH_PROXY_HEADER_NAME": "LOGGED_IN_USER" ## Running realms-wiki start ### Upstart (Ubuntu 14.04) Setup upstart with this command: sudo realms-wiki setup_upstart This command requires root priveleges because it creates an upstart script. Also note that ports below `1024` require user root. After your config is in place use the following commands: sudo start realms-wiki sudo stop realms-wiki sudo restart realms-wiki ### Systemd (Ubuntu 16.04) Setup systemd by creating the file **/etc/systemd/system/realms-wiki.service**: [Unit] Description=Realms Wiki [Service] User=ubuntu Group=ssl-cert Type=forking ExecStart=/home/ubuntu/realms-wiki/.venv/bin/python /home/ubuntu/realms-wiki/.venv/bin/gunicorn \ --certfile=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem \ --keyfile=/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key \ --name realms-wiki \ --access-logfile - \ --error-logfile - \ --worker-class gevent \ --workers 5 \ --bind \ --user ubuntu \ --group ssl-cert \ --chdir /home/ubuntu/realms-wiki/.venv \ 'realms:create_app()' Restart=on-failure LimitNOFILE=65335 WorkingDirectory=/home/ubuntu/realms-wiki/.venv Environment=PATH=/home/ubuntu/realms-wiki/.venv/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:$PATH Environment=LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 Environment=GEVENT_RESOLVER=ares [Install] This file must be created as user root. Also note that ports below `1024` require user root. Globally replace /home/ubuntu/realms-wiki/ in the example above with your local Realms-wiki install path. Note that this example uses the HTTPS (SSL) support built in to gunicorn. It references the self-signed certificate that gets created if you run **sudo apt-get install ssl-cert**. The private key is only visible to the group ssl-cert, so in this example gunicorn runs with group *ssl-cert*. Finally, let systemd know about the new config file: sudo systemctl daemon-reload After your config is in place use the following commands: sudo systemctl start realms-wiki.service sudo systemctl stop realms-wiki.service sudo systemctl restart realms-wiki.service # Enable auto-start of this service on reboot: sudo systemctl enable realms-wiki.service ### Development mode This will start the server in the foreground with auto reloaded enabled: realms-wiki dev ### Other commands Usage: realms-wiki [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Options: --help Show this message and exit. Commands: auth configure Set config.json, expects JSON encoded string create_db Creates DB tables dev Run development server drop_db Drops DB tables pip Execute pip commands, useful for virtualenvs restart Restart server run Run production server (alias for start) setup Start setup wizard setup_upstart Start upstart conf creation wizard start Run server daemon status Get server status stop Stop server test Run tests version Output version Access from your browser: http://localhost:5000 ## Templating Realms uses Handlebars partials to create templates. Each page that you create can be imported as a partial. This page imports and uses a partial: This page contains the content of the partial: I locked these pages to preserve them. You can copy and paste into a new page for testing purposes. ## Contributing Issues and pull requests are welcome. Please follow the code style guide.
