prometheus build

https://raw.github.com/reubano/prometheus/master/screenshot.png

Introduction

prometheus is a flask powered web app that tells you how your stock portfolio has performed over time, gives insight into how to optimize your asset allocation, and monitors your portfolio for rebalancing or performance enhancing opportunities. It has been tested on the following configuration:

  • MacOS X 10.7.5
  • Python 2.7.4

Requirements

prometheus requires the following in order to run properly:

Features

Prometheus aims to give investors an easy way to:

  • construct portfolios of low cost ETFs and mutual funds
  • generate customized portfolios based on their individual risk tolerance
  • access asset classes that have since only been available to the elite

Prometheus provides a suite of tools to:

  • track and monitor portfolio performance and allocation
  • compare portfolios across various categories (account, manager, etc.)
  • visualize various portfolio metrics

Framework

Flask Extensions

Production Server

Quick Start

Clone the repo

git clone git@github.com:reubano/prometheus.git
cd prometheus

Install requirements

sudo easy_install pip
sudo pip install -r requirements-local.txt

Run server

./manage.py runserver

Now view the app at http://localhost:5000

Scripts

Prometheus comes with a built in script manager manage.py. Use it to start the server, run tests, and initialize the database.

Usage

./manage.py <command> [command-options] [manager-options]

Examples

start server

./manage.py runserver

run nose tests

./manage.py runtests

initialize the production database

./manage.py initdb -m Production

Manager options

-m MODE, --cfgmode=MODE  set the configuration mode, must be one of
                         ['Production', 'Development', 'Test'] defaults
                         to 'Development'. See `config.py` for details
-f FILE, --cfgfile=FILE  set the configuration file (absolute path)

Commands

checkstage  Checks staged with git pre-commit hook
cleardb     Removes all content from database
initdb      Removes all content from database and initializes it
            with default values
popdb       Removes all content from database initializes it, and
            populates it with sample data
popprices   Add prices for all securities in the database
runserver   Runs the Flask development server i.e. app.run()
runtests    Run nose tests
shell       Runs a Python shell inside Flask application context.
testapi     Test to see if API is working

Command options

Type ./manage.py <command> -h to view any command's options

./manage.py manage runserver -h
usage: ./manage.py runserver [-h] [-t HOST] [-p PORT] [--threaded]
                             [--processes PROCESSES] [--passthrough-errors]
                             [-d] [-r]

Runs the Flask development server i.e. app.run()

optional arguments:
  -h, --help              show this help message and exit
  -t HOST, --host HOST
  -p PORT, --port PORT
  --threaded
  --processes PROCESSES
  --passthrough-errors
  -d, --no-debug
  -r, --no-reload

Example

start production server on port 1000

./manage.py runserver -p 1000 -m Production

Advanced Installation

Virtual environment setup

Ideally, you should install modules for every project into a virtual environment. This setup will allow to install different version of the same module into different projects without worrying about any adverse interactions.

cd prometheus
sudo pip install virtualenv virtualenvwrapper

Add the following to your ~/.profile

export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs
export PIP_VIRTUALENV_BASE=$WORKON_HOME
export PIP_RESPECT_VIRTUALENV=true
source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh

Create your new virtualenv

mkvirtualenv --no-site-packages prometheus
workon prometheus
sudo easy_install pip
sudo pip install -r requirements-local.txt

API configuration

By default, this project uses the API hosted at http://prometheus-api.herokuapp.com. If you would like to host your own API do the following:

Clone the repo

git clone git@github.com:reubano/prometheus-api.git
cd prometheus-api

Install requirements

mkvirtualenv --no-site-packages prometheus-api
workon prometheus-api
sudo pip install -r requirements-local.txt

Run server (pick a different port than the main app)

./manage.py runserver -p 5005

Now that your api is up and running at http://localhost:5005, set the api_base variable in config.py to the url of your new api.

Production Server

Getting Gevent up and running is a bit tricky so follow these instructions carefully.

To use gevent, you first need to install libevent.

Linux

apt-get install libevent-dev

Mac OS X via homebrew

brew install libevent

Mac OS X via macports

sudo port install libevent

Mac OS X via DMG

download on Rudix

Now that libevent is handy, install the remaining requirements

sudo pip install -r requirements.txt

Or via the following if you installed libevent from macports

sudo CFLAGS="-I /opt/local/include -L /opt/local/lib" pip install gevent
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt

Finally, install foreman

sudo gem install foreman

Now, you can run the application locally

foreman start

You can also specify what port you'd prefer to use

foreman start -p 5555

Environment Variables

Prometheus will reference the following environment variables in config.py if they are set on your system.

SECRET_KEY
CSRF_SESSION_KEY
RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY
RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY
BOOTSTRAP_GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ACCOUNT

To set an environment variable, do the following:

echo 'export VARIABLE=value' >> ~/.profile

Deployment

If you haven't signed up for Heroku, go ahead and do that. You should then be able to add your SSH key to Heroku, and also heroku login from the commandline.

Install heroku and create your app

sudo gem install heroku
heroku create -s cedar app_name

Now before pushing to Heroku, remove pandas (there is a bug where heroku won't install pandas unless numpy is already installed)

pip freeze -l | sed '/pandas/d' > requirements.txt
git push heroku master
pip freeze -l > requirements.txt
git push heroku master
heroku ps:scale web=1

Finally, we can make sure the application is up and running

heroku ps

Now, we can view the application in our web browser

heroku open

And anytime you want to redeploy, it's as simple as git push heroku master. Once you are done coding, deactivate your virtualenv with deactivate.
