Mimeograph

This is the readme for Mimeograph, a Twitter clone that fulfills the underserved market of people that want to share ASCII images with each other.

Installation

Mimeograph was developed with Django 1.3, PIL 1.1.7 and Python 2.7. It was not tested on any other configurations, but it would probably work fine with other versions of Python.

  1. Get Django 1.3. See https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.3/intro/install/ for instructions on how to install.
  2. Get and install the Python Image Library 1.1.7 from http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/index.htm. You may need some additional libraries for PIL to work. See its readme for more information.
  3. Run git clone git://github.com/jergason/mimeograph.git; cd mimeograph to get the code and go into the mimeograph directory.
  4. Run python manage.py syncdb, and do not create a superuser or the fixtures will not load. This should automatically load the fixtures with some seed data. The superuser is jergason with a password of password
  5. Run it with python manage.py runserver and go to http://localhost:8000 to check it out!
