Inside of `django/mootools` you'll find `settings.py`. This file contains all the configuration options for the simple "mootools" project which includes the Depender app. You'll find the following options that you may set:
- - DEPENDER_DEBUG - set to `True` (the default) if you want Depender to always load scripts from the disk (i.e. disable memory caching). This also disabled compression. Note that this is somewhat slow-ish, as every request requires the app to load ALL the JS into memory.

- DEPENDER_PACKAGE_YMLS - a list of package.yml files to include; defaults to the submodules included in this repository (MooTools Core and MooTools More) as well as the Depender Client.
- DEPENDER_SCRIPTS_JSON - a list of scripts.json manifest files (these are deprecated manifests from < Mootools 1.3 era).
- DEPENDER_YUI_PATH - the path to the YUI compressor jar.

For more about virtualenv see [http://pypi.python.org/pypi/virtualenv](http://pypi.python.org/pypi/virtualenv). Once you've started the server you should be able to hit it with a request for some JS. Like this:
