Using Butter with Cornfield
In order for Cornfield to operate correctly ( being able to save, load, and publish ) you will need to install mongodb. You can find a good guide to do so here. Before starting up you Cornfield server be sure that you have MongoDB running or else it will fail to start.
git clone --recursive https://github.com/mozilla/butter.git
node make server
When updating your repo, make sure to run
node make submodules to update Butter's submodules.
Running Butter (with cornfield)
- To use butter be sure to start the node server by running
node make server.
- Navigate to http://localhost:8888/templates/test.html to begin using Butter
Running Butter (without cornfield)
- Be sure to have a webserver of some sort running and navigate to butter/templates/test.html ( keep in mind you will not be able to save and load projects )
node maketo ensure all of the css has been compiled
- If you do not have a webserver setup you can create a temporary one by running
