Place Pulse

To run Place Pulse on a Mac using Homebrew: If Homebrew is already installed, you can skip step 1 of the Database Setup. If you prefer not to use Homebrew, install MongoDB using the intructions on their website and then pickup from step 2.

Database Setup

Open Terminal and type (without the $)
$ ruby <(curl -fsSk
$ sudo mkdir -p /data/db/
$ sudo chown `id -u` /data/db
$ mongod

Site Setup

Clone Place-Pulse from GitHub
Open Terminal and type (without the $)
$ cd /in/to/the/directory/you/just/cloned
$ virtualenv ./PlacePulse --distribute
$ source
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python ./

Open up http://localhost:8000/


Same as Site Setup except for $ source instead of $ source and
$ sudo -E python ./ instead of $ python ./
