Quick Guide to Data Explorer: 

- Getting Started

Pre-reqs: 

- For JavaScript hacking only: A web browser

- For back end changes:
- Visual Studio 2010
- .NET Framework 4.0
- SQL Server Express or above
- IIS7 and Url Rewrite 2.0 are required for odata endpoint support: http://www.iis.net/download/urlrewrite, if you do not require that support you can safely comment out the rewrite rule from web.config 
- If you want to compile release make sure "java" is in your path, java is used to bundle the js files. 


The File layout

- If you would like to hack on the grid or the SQL editor (change syntax highlighting, experiment with new JavaScript features) checkout the Static directory. 
   The Static directory contains a single page with the grid and editor. It references the main js and css files in the project. 


- The Lib directory contains all the 3rd party libraries we use
- The Tools directory contains exes that help in the build process 
- The App directory contains the actual SEDE app
- The Data directory contains a blank schema for a "Stack" site and the schema for data explorer.


Configuring the databases:

- Run migrate.local.bat in the migration directory, then import some data about the sites from the SeedData/sites.sql script. It assumes the DB is called "DataExplorer", if you name it differently or have a named instance, you will have to edit the batch file. 
- Import data into the Stack Overflow database (and any other databases you wish to query) alternatively if a DB exists you can simple run queries that do not depend on data like "SELECT 1"
