[CalendarServer-dev] Web Developer

Probably the closest thing to setup documentation that exists for CalendarServer are the Docker integrations contributed in PRs 513 <https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/pull/513> and 489 <https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/pull/489> (neither are merged so far; see following paragraph):


Depending on the scope and nature of your new projects, I would advise somewhere between "some caution" and "an abundance of caution" as you consider whether to use CalendarServer. On the plus side, the test coverage is good (both unit tests and integration tests) and the existing features are pretty stable. On the not-as-plus side, have a look at the code frequency graph <https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/graphs/code-frequency> while ruminating on the fact that this project uses Python 2.7, the support lifetime <https://pythonclock.org/> for which ends in just over one year. The bulk of the dependent modules (i.e. Twisted) are safe on 3 at this point, however an unknown amount of work remains to get CalendarServer safe for 3. Someone gave this a quick shot which is detailed in this PR: https://github.com/apple/ccs-calendarserver/pull/501 - I don't know if this produces a functional service, but I do know that the tests don't pass.

The problem I face is a good set of documentation on how to get it setup and running.  Development platform for my projects will be Ubuntu linux of at least 14.04LTS or 16.04LTS.  I am willing to document precisely how to do it if I can find a better starting point.  The current documentation is basic and seemingly missing some information.
