Project Name: indico
Wikitech Usernames of requestors: Jean-Frédéric
Brief description: The Wikimania team has decided to look into alternatives to Wikis and EasyChair to manage Wikimania submissions. They have identified Indico as a strong contender. @Wittylama has asked me to look into deploying an instance of Indico on the Wikimedia Cloud.
Indico is a web application, licensed under GPL-3.0. The frontend is AngularJS. The backend is Python (package available on Pypi). It is built on the Flask microframework, running with UWSGI. The application relies on Celery, Redis and PostgreSQL. It is to be deployed behind either Nginx or Apache. Other dependencies include LaTeX (!). There is a docker-compose setup available, but not recommended for production usage.
How soon you are hoping this can be fulfilled: well, I was hoping to investigate this during the holiday season ; but I dragged making that request and now we are in holiday season so… ;-) I’d say, as soon as someone can have a look, the earlier the better but there is no hard deadline either
