Getting Started

HELIPORT is a web application built in Python using the Django web framework.


HELIPORT is comprised of various modules (Django apps) that encapsulate certain features. The core functionality is implemented in heliport.core; other apps can import and use it.

Management Commands

Django projects contain an auto-generated script which can be used to run management scripts. For convenience, HELIPORT installs this script as heliport-cli. The command heliport-cli allows you to run management tasks from HELIPORT apps as well as tasks from all other Django apps that were used to build HELIPORT.

To see a list of all available management scripts, run this command in the installed environment (i.e. Poetry shell):
