What's in here?

The project contains the following folders and important files:

  • data -- Data files, such as those used to generate HTML
  • etc -- Miscellaneous scripts and metadata for project bootstrapping.
  • jst -- Javascript (Underscore.js) templates
  • less -- LESS files, will be compiled to CSS and concatenated for deployment
  • templates -- HTML (Jinja2) templates, to be compiled locally
  • www -- Static and compiled assets to be deployed (a.k.a. "the output")
  • app.py -- A Flask app for rendering the project locally.
  • app_config.py -- Global project configuration for scripts, deployment, etc.
  • fabfile.py -- Fabric commands automating setup and deployment

Install requirements

Node.js is required for the static asset pipeline. If you don't already have it, get it like this:

brew install node
curl https://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

Then install the project requirements:

cd $NEW_PROJECT_NAME
npm install less universal-jst
mkvirtualenv $NEW_PROJECT_NAME
pip install -r requirements.txt

Generating the tiles

The source image and tiles are not stored in the repository. Please do not commit them. To cut the tiles:

  • Download the source image from Dropbox and save it as data/full.png.
  • Run python cut_tiles.py

Run the project locally

A flask app is used to run the project locally. It will automatically recompile templates and assets on demand.

workon $NEW_PROJECT_NAME
python app.py

Visit localhost:8000 in your browser.

Compile with static assets

Compile LESS to CSS, compile javascript templates to Javascript and minify all assets:

workon $NEW_PROJECT_NAME
fab render 

(This is done automatically whenever you deploy to S3.)

Test the rendered app

If you want to test the app once you've rendered it out, just use the Python webserver:

cd www
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Deploy to S3

fab staging master deploy
