A little webpage that shows why Fedora is a good operating system for programmers, analysts, teachers, learners, and other people using Python.
It contains some talking points, each with a link to more information.
Who made it
Made by people who maintain (or are interested in) Python in Fedora. If you want to join, just send a pull request, or look at the Fedora Python SIG page for more info.
How it works
When you push some changes, the Flask website is frozen by Elsa via GitHub Actions.
When the commit is from the
master branch, the frozen HTML site is pushed to
gh-pages branch and the cache is purged on Cloudflare.
Feel free to explore
.github/workflows/main.yml to see how it's done.
The content if mainly in the
points.yml file (as in talking points).
It's a YAML file with Markdown.
fedoralovespython.py defines what's done with
the content and files in
static define the form.
For local development, you have two options:
Inside a Python 3 virtual environment:
python -m pip install -r requirements.txt python fedoralovespython.py serve
Alternately, with Fedora's system packages:
sudo dnf install -y python3-flask python3-markdown python3-PyYAML \ python3-ansicolor FLASK_APP=fedoralovespython.py python3 -m flask run
The above commands will serve the website locally; in case you want to test freezing, use the virtual environment option and run:
python fedoralovespython.py freeze --serve
That command will freeze the site and then serve it locally from the static files.
When doing pull requests it is very helpful to show us the result online. Especially if you are chnaging anything but content. You can do it by deploying your changes to your fork's GitHub Pages:
python fedoralovespython.py deploy --no-push --no-cname
The above command will freeze the site, and commit it frozen to your
branch (be careful though because it will rewrite the branch's history).
Then you can push the branch to your fork on GitHub as you would push the
branch with your changes, except you might need to use
If you happen to have push permissions to the original
repository, never deploy the site from your computer, let the automatic
machinery do it instead.
--no-cname option makes sure your deployed site won't redirect back to
Once pushed, your website should live online on the following URL,
