ibt2 - I'll be there, 2

I'll be there, 2 is an oversimplified application to register attendees at a conference or event.

Basic workflow:

  • if you want (not mandatory), login with your user; to create a new user, simply choose a username and a password. Benefit of logging in: only you or admins can edit/delete your entries.
  • pick a date
  • choose the group you want to join or the name of a new group
  • write your name and, optionally, a note
  • rinse and repeat

It's recommended to login with username admin and password ibt2, go to your personal page and change the password, if you've just installed ibt2. The admin user can change some global settings and also grant super cow powers to any other user.

For the notes, you can use the Markdown syntax.

Install, run, develop and debug


Just run:

docker-compose up

Old-fashioned installation

To install it:

sudo python3
# if you want to install these modules for an unprivileged user, add --user and remove "sudo";
# if you want to upgrade the versions already present in the system, also add --upgrade
sudo pip3 install tornado
sudo pip3 install pymongo
git clone
cd ibt2

Installation of Node.js and npm is left as an exercise to the reader.

To run it:

# install dependencies (one time only, or every time the dependencies in package.json change)
npm install

# build for production with minification (each time the sources changes)
npm run build

# run the Python webserver at localhost:3000
npm run server

Now you can point your browser to http://localhost:3000/ (that's the server for production)

If you want, you can share a link to a specific day, specifying it in the yyyy-mm-dd format, like: http://localhost:3000/#/day/2017-01-20

You can also run the server in https, putting in the ssl directory two files named ibt2_key.pem and ibt2_cert.pem

Run a development environment

# install dependencies (one time only)
npm install

# run the Python web server using a testing database
npm run devserver &

# serve with hot reload at localhost:8080
npm run dev

# only when the devserver is running, you can also run the testsuite
python3 ./tests/

Your browser will automatically open http://localhost:8080/ (that's the server for development)


See the docs/ file for more information about how to contribute.

Technological stack

The web part is incuded; you need to install Node.js, Tornado, MongoDB and the pymongo module on your system (no configuration needed).
