In this example configuration we will use apache2 + mod_wsgi, but there are
many other choices. These are described in Django's docs at `deploying Django

Barcode-Client
--------------
The Barcode-Client is an interface to k4ever which can run on a dedicated
computer/laptop.
Dependencies
````````````
- python
- simplejson
- a terminal
Configuration
`````````````
You'll need a user/password combination in k4ever, so go to k4ever's admin
page and add a new user which is member of the *Plugin* group. Additionally
you need an entry for the Barcode-Reader to appear on the settings page.
All this can be accomplished by calling the *install.py* with the path
to your k4ever django installation::
python install.py ../k4ever/
At this point the Barcode-Client has no configuration file. All you have to do
is to set three environment variables according to your setup::
export BARCODE_PLUGIN_USER=yourpluginuser
export BARCODE_PLUGIN_PASS=yourpluginpass
export BARCODE_PLUGIN_URL=https://path-to.your/api2/
Afterwards you can start the Barcode-Client with *python freitagskasse.py*.
If you have a Barcode-Scanner: Normally barcodescanners just act as a normal
keyboard. Just let it type the barcodes into the Barcode-Client and everything
should work.
If you have a RFID-Reader: Most RFID-Cards have an ID which can be used to
authenticate against k4ever. A user needs to take this ID and put it in the
authblob section. For an RFID_Reader to work with k4ever you can use the
*rfid_keypresser.py*, which reads all input from the reader and translates
them to X keypresses.
