* Medley

A collection of lightweight, single-purpose web applications that are too
small or trivial to bother making standalone.
A collection of small, single-purpose web applications that live under
one roof so that each one doesn't have to reinvent all the wheels.

Medley is written in Python 3 and uses the CherryPy framework.
It's for all the situations when you think to yourself, "I should
write a script/app/webpage that does X" but then get waylaid by
setting up Y, Z, and all the other things that need to be established

You'll need at least Python 3.4. Then:
You'll need at least Python 3.5. The rest should just be standard
Python application ceremony:

#+begin_src shell
git clone
cd medley
# Set up a virtual environment
make venv
source venv/bin/activate
make setup
make serve

* Testing

~make test~ will run through all tests for all apps.

~make [appname]~ will run through the tests for a specific app.
# Install third-party libraries
make setup

~make htmlcov~ will generate a coverage report in HTML
# Optional: install one additional library for audio playback.
make setup-audio

~make coverage~ will print a coverage report to the console.
# Start the server
make serve
