Initialising your first BanzaiDB database¶
Initialising a BanzaiDB involves having BanzaiDB connect to your RethinkDB instance. Once connected BanzaiDB creates a database and initialises some default tables.
- Please ensure the following has been met:
- # You have installed BanzaiDB, RethinkDB & the RethinkDB python driver # You have a RethinkDB instance running
Telling BanzaiDB about your RethinkDB instance¶
The file ~/.BanzaiDB.cfg (~/ = /home/$USER/) is used to provide information to Banzai DB about your RethinkDB instance.
An example would be:
db_host = 127.0.0.1 db_name = my-cool-project
db_host: will always be 127.0.0.1 unless you have installed your RethinkDB instance on a remote server.
db_name: will typically reflect the short running title of the project
