This code is used to power the snippet sharing site,

Development setup

$ cd requirements
$ pip install -r development.txt
$ cd ..
$ python syncdb --migrate

Now you can start the develoment server:

$ python 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, they are included in the fixtures folder:

$ python loaddata fixtures/languages.json

Now you should be able to use the development version of djangosnippets on port 8000.

Styling contributor?

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.

Production setup

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.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
