to build the projects data

To run the script that generates the project data, first install the requirements:

pip install -r requirements.txt

You will also need to unlock the Google Sheets key using git-crypt. Unlocking is simplest using a symmetric secret key securely shared by a team member.

Finally, you may run the command to generate the projects list for all review cycles:

python scripts/ strp2020 strp2021q1 strp2021q4 msft2021

to build the site locally

Assuming you already have Node.js installed, you can install the build dependencies with:

npm install .

To start a development version of the site, simply run:

npm run dev

and then visit http://localhost:5000/research/cdr-database in your browser.
