PageRequestsToTheMetal

This repository is the source code that goes with the page request down to the metal article. Using this will let you follow along with the article.

The original article can be found here: http://www.jaggedverge.com/2017/11/how-a-web-page-request-makes-it-down-to-the-metal/

Installation

The code requires all the python dependencies in requirements.txt to be installed in order to run.

Running the server

This project uses the django development server. For this to work we need to have a port opened through the VM if we are using Vagrant. To do this use python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000 to specify the right port to run the server on.
