Manual synchronization

To create data for Geotrek-Rando (web public portal) and Geotrek-Mobile (mobile phone app), just run this command:

./bin/django sync_rando /where/to/generate/data

The parameter is the destination directory for synchronized data. If Geotrek-Admin is not accessible on localhost:80, you have to use the --url option. To make output less or more verbose, you can use the --verbose option.

Since version 2.4.0 of Geotrek-admin, you can also launch the command sync_rando from the web interface. You can add synchronization options with advanced configuration setting SYNC_RANDO_OPTIONS = {}.

Automatic synchronization

You can set up automatic synchronization by creating a file /etc/crond.d/geotrek_sync that contains:

0 3 * * * root /path/to/geotrek/bin/django sync_rando /where/to/generate/data

This example will automatically synchronize data a 3 am every day.

Synchronization options

  -v VERBOSITY, --verbosity=VERBOSITY
                        Verbosity level; 0=minimal output, 1=normal output,
                        2=verbose output
  -u URL, --url=URL     Base url of Geotrek-Admin (eg.
  -s SOURCE, --source=SOURCE
                        Filter by source(s)
  -P PORTAL, --portal=PORTAL
                        Filter by portal(s)
  -p, --skip-pdf        Skip generation of PDF files
  -t, --skip-tiles      Skip generation of map tiles files for mobile app
  -d, --skip-dem        Skip generation of Digital Elevation Model files for 3D view
  -w, --with-touristicevents
                        include touristic events by trek in
  -c CONTENT_CATEGORIES, --with-touristiccontent-categories=CONTENT_CATEGORIES
                        include touristic contents by trek in
                        (filtered by category ID ex: --with-touristiccontent-categories="1,2,3")

Synchronization filtered by source and portal

You can filter treks, touristic contents, touristic events and static pages by source(s). For example, if you created 3 records sources named source A, source B and source C and you want only export data only from source A and source B to your web public portal, you can synchronize with:

./bin/django sync_rando --source "source A,source B" dataAB

Multiple sources are separated with comas (without space before or after coma). Do not forget to add double quotes after and before the parameter if there are spaces in source names. You can run several commands to export several sources combinations into several directories and use them to publish several distinct web portals.

You can do exactly the same with Target_Portal filed value.

./bin/django sync_rando --portal "portal A" dataA

Synchronization filtered by touristic content categories

In Geotrek-mobile, you can choose to also include touristic content per trek. You must specify ID categories :

./bin/django sync_rando --with-touristiccontent-categories="1,3"

Multiple categories are separated with comas (without space before or after coma).

Synchronization with a distant Geotrek-Rando serveur

If your server hosts both Geotrek-Admin and Geotrek-Rando, you just have to configure Geotrek-Rando so it uses the directory chosen above. Be sure nginx or apache will have access rights to read these data.

If you have separated servers, you have to copy files, for example with rsync command:

rsync /path/of/generated/data other-server:/path/of/generated/data
