This is a cookiecutter template for new XBlocks.
It enables creation of the XBlock repository as well as a Dockerfile for building and running your XBlock in the xblock-sdk workbench.
To create a new XBlock using this cookiecutter template, first make sure you have cookiecutter installed.
$ cookiecutter https://github.com/edx/cookiecutter-xblock.git
Enter the short name and primary class name of your new XBlock when prompted.
To see your new XBlock in action, build and run a Docker image containing it:
$ make dev.run
Your XBlock should now be available at http://localhost:8000
As a next step, you can pick up the XBlock tutorial at the Customizing Your XBlock section.
