2) Get the code

$svn co http://svn.assembla.com/svn/coatl

3) Create database

$cd coatl/db && sqlite3 DBCOATL.db &

4) in coatl/ dir create localsettings.py file with the next content:

import os
BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
PROJECT_DIR = BASE_DIR + '/db'
DATABASE_NAME = os.path.join(PROJECT_DIR, 'DBCOATL.db') # I'm using sqlite3!
DATABASE_USER = ''        # Not used with sqlite3.
DATABASE_PASSWORD = ''       # Not used with sqlite3.
DATABASE_HOST = ''             # Not used with sqlite3.

Save and close this file.

You just installed Django’s auth system, which means you don’t have any
superusers defined. Would you like to create one now?

Answer ‘yes’ and fill data.

6) Run server
