    WebUI missing

    OK, total noob here, but some feedback on the docs I guess and maybe a request for a pointer:

    1) Looks like Shinken is written in Python2. Fine, but as a product nearing its end of life (2020) I'm confident a Python3 transition is planned? But even if not, it's certainly time on the 10 minute install guide stopped reading "Python 2.6 or higher" as I wasted time on account of fact that pip is python3 by default now and I had to use pip2. Not crisis, but worth keeping clear for noobs who think python=python3 (guilty as charged here ;-).

    2) Use Shinken with ... states that "If you install Shinken using the 10 minutes installation recommended method, you will have the Shinken WebUI installed.", great. But I did that and it's not. Well if it is I can't see it and there is not tip there on how to use it. So I go to Use Shinken with WebUI and alas I'm non the wiser. It doesn't tell me much that I can digest quickly, but does give me a tip that "Enable the webui module in ‘’modules/webui.cfg’’ configuration file" yet there is not webui.cfg file to found anywhere on my system after teh 10minute install (method 1 using pip). Still there's a clue that it serves on port 7767 so a quick check:

    Code:
    $ sudo netstat -tulpe | grep shinken
    tcp        0      0 localhost:46068         *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13734645    21116/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 localhost:42549         *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13734735    21296/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 *:7768                  *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13742757    20851/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 *:7769                  *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13739812    21115/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 *:7771                  *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13745166    21003/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 *:7772                  *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13739845    21212/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 *:7773                  *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13739908    21295/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 localhost:40222         *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13742987    21213/python2.7 
    tcp        0      0 localhost:41900         *:*                     LISTEN      shinken    13743434    20853/python2.7
    reveals nothing's listening on 7767 yet shinken is listening elsewhere. Yet:



    So it's not secretly there listening on another port so a fair assumption is it's not installed.

    Anyhow I guess I'm stuck and wondering why the I don't have a webui.cfg to work with when reading how to use the WebUI.

    That's today's noob conundrum for anyone happy to point one in the right direction and/or consider fixing the docs (which I'm happy to do if I learn enough to qualify for that task).

    Monitoring is done for the fixed and all elevated items for the people. It is done or the use of the uk assignment help for all softened items and bits for people. It is done for the full use of the instruments.
