This code is used to power the snippet sharing site, djangosnippets.org
$ cd requirements $ pip install -r development.txt $ cd .. $ python manage.py syncdb --migrate
Now you can start the develoment server:
$ python manage.py runserver
Before you can actually use the site now you have to define at least one language. If you just want to use the ones from djangosnippets.org, they are included in the fixtures folder:
$ python manage.py loaddata fixtures/languages.json
Now you should be able to use the development version of djangosnippets on port 8000.
DjangoSnippets uses the Foundation framework as core of its visual style. To get this working on your local machine you need compass and bower to compile your stylesheets. Please never modify the generated .css files directly but use the .scss ones.
To keep the setup path as short as possible, simply run following commands in your terminal:
$ cd djangosnippets/static $ bower install && compass watch
If you don't have either of these two installed, you can find detailed instructions on their respective websites.
Please make sure, that you commit only a compressed version of the CSS file as this is what will be deployed.
The production setup is right now tailored to Heroku and therefore mostly automatic. The difference between these two setups is configured in the djangosnippets.settings.production module and the requirements.txt.
