muttrcbuilder version 2.2

This is the code used to run http://www.muttrcbuilder.org/. It provides an easy way to create muttrc files for the mutt email client (http://www.mutt.org/).


To build run npm install, npm run build and npm start, then view http://localhost:5000/ in your web browser.


Requires nodejs and npm, and python to run the test server.

The program to generate new configuration JSON requires python and the module lxml. It also requires a lynx program in the $PATH.
