How to develop SIB server packages

LDP packages represent capabilites the server could support. Each may have it’s own configuration depending of what mission it fulfills. There is no limit of what a LDP package can do. Here we are going to see how to developp your own package.


A SIB server in development mode.

Generate your package template

First we retrieve the template of the package with this command :

sib startpackage djangoldp_mypack


All your package should respect this semantic. For example djangoldp_skills.

Make a first model

Go to your file, and make a simple first model :

from django.db import models
from djangoldp.models import Model
from django.conf import settings

class Todo(Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    deadline = models.DateTimeField()
    author_user = models.ForeignKey(settings.AUTH_USER_MODEL)

    class Meta:
        auto_author = 'author_user'
        serializer_fields =  ['name']


A section about models is coming soon.

Add your package

Tell your sever, you’ve add a new package in the packages.yml:

    djangoldp_mypack: djangoldp_mypack

Initiate your server

Go at the root of your developpement server at the level where reside your file.

Then initiate your server running this command:

sib install sibserver

Make the migration

At the root of your project, run the following commands :

python makemigrations
python migrate

Run your server

Finally, you can run your server as usual to see your new package’s data :

python runserver

Now access to your Django administration You should see your Todo model.
