Kantree uses configuration files written in YAML. The main configuration file is located at the root of your installation under the name config.yml.
All available configuration options are listed in kantree/config.py.
You must provide a secret key or the user session will not be secured. Changing the secret key will reset all user sessions.
This is required if you serve Kantree from anything other than localhost.
- server_name: the hostname (including port if different than 80) under which Kantree will be accessible. This will be used to generate urls.
- server_secured: set to
trueto indicate that the server is behind SSL.
- push_server_url: the full url under which Kantree push server will be accessible. This will be used to connect to the push server from the frontend.
Important: If you are using HTTPS, don’t forget to update the push_server_url as well.
server_name: example.com server_secured: true push_server_url: https://example.com
Regarding the push server: it is launched on port 4000 and needs to be accessible from the web. If you are using Nginx with our example configuration file, then push_server_url should be the same as the server_name prefixed with the HTTP scheme.
If you are using an IP as your server_name, you will also need to set the option session_cookie_domain to the same value. Example:
server_name: 192.168.1.1:5000 session_cookie_domain: 192.168.1.1:5000
You must provide this configuration:
If Redis is not installed locally:
If not configured, emails won’t be sent:
smtp_server: localhost smtp_port: 587 smtp_username: example smtp_password: example
You can configure the default sender address using the default_sender option:
mail_default_sender: "Kantree <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
Using the default configuration, uploaded files will be stored locally under the directory ./uploads. You can modify this directory using:
An alternative is to use Amazon S3 using:
upload_default_backend: s3 upload_backends: - s3: access_key: ACCESSKEY secret_key: SECRETKEY bucket: BUCKETNAME async: true
If you are using a region that only supports the v4 signature, set the additional settings:
upload_backends: - s3: access_key: ACCESSKEY secret_key: SECRETKEY bucket: BUCKETNAME async: true use_sig_v4: true region_name: REGIONNAME # (eg: eu-central-1)
Note: Boto (the python AWS library) does not currently support server-side KMS encryption. See open issue here which contains a patch: https://github.com/boto/boto/issues/2921
