This Agora Server is meant to be used in conjunction with an Agora. An Agora is a collection of digital gardens and other information sources that are assembled into a distributed knowledge graph.
For an example Agora, and for more information on the Agora design, please refer to https://flancia.org/go/agora.
To see the Agora Server in action with the example Agora, please visit https://anagora.org.
Install OS dependencies:
$ apt-get install python3 python3-venv python3-pip
Then install Flask (and other required packages) inside a Python virtual environment in this directory:
python3 -m venv venv . venv/bin/activate # you'll need to run this every time before running the server. pip install -r requirements.txt
Then run the development server:
If you change Typescript, you'll want to use parcel to watch for changes and recompile:
parcel watch app/js-src/index.ts --dist-dir app/static/js
If you don't have parcel, see https://v2.parceljs.org/getting-started/webapp/. You need parcel 2 for the above command to work.
sudo yarn global add parcel@next should get you that if you're using yarn (it might end up in /usr/local/bin/parcel).

About the project
As you might have inferred from the above, this project is based on Flask.
/app hosts the Flask app. In it:
app/__init__.py has the high level Flask setup.
app/agora.py does rendering (url maps, views).
app/db.py has logic to read/process notes. The db is actually the filesystem :)
app/templates are Jinja2 templates.
