Project Files

Projects are stored in a directory that is specified by setting ROOT_PROJECTS_DIR in the django settings. The default is /tmp/standards-lab.

The value of ROOT_PROJECTS_DIR must be created before using Standards Lab.

The project directory includes: uploaded data, uploaded schema, and the project’s current settings.

Management of files

There is no automatic management of projects. Deleting a project’s directory will delete the project from Standards Lab.

Depending on your system it may be useful to use a cron job to periodically clear out projects that are no longer being used. This could be achieved using find and the mtime argument.
