# Grano User Interface
[grano](http://grano.cc/) is a toolkit for building journalistic social network analysis applications on the web. This package contains an administrative user interface based on [AngularJS](http://angularjs.org/). The interface is intended for managing entities and analysis for advanced users, not as a general-purpose interface.
grano-ui requires that you have installed and configured [grano](http://grano.cc/). Please refer to [grano's documentation](http://docs.grano.cc/) for further instructions. You'll also need to install these external (non-Python dependencies):
- Twitter's [bower](https://github.com/bower/bower) for installing JS dependencies.
- [UglifyJS](https://github.com/mishoo/UglifyJS/) for JS minification.
- [Less](http://lesscss.org/) for compiling the CSS resources.
To install the package from GitHub, you need to follow these steps from within the virtual environment in which
grano has been installed:
git clone https://github.com/granoproject/grano-ui.git
cd [grano dir]
cd [grano-ui dir]
python setup.py develop
bower install (in docker, use --allow-root or su app -c "bower install")
After installing the package, you will still need to enable this plugin. Add the entry
ui to the
PLUGINS variable in your grano settings file. If you have no other plugins installed, try this:
PLUGINS = ['ui']
grano-ui will deploy itself to the web root of
grano when it has been activated as a plugin. You can change that path by setting a
UI_PREFIX, starting with a forward slash.
UI_PREFIX = '/grano'
Further, asset compilation and minification can be enabled by setting the
ASSETS_DEBUG variable to
