Data analysis for Everytown's database of mass shootings in the U.S. from January 2009 to December 2016.


The following things are assumed to be true in this documentation.

  • You are running OSX.
  • You are using Python 2.7. (Probably the version that came OSX.)
  • You have virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper installed and working.

For more details on the technology stack used with the app-template, see our development environment blog post.

Bootstrap the project

cd mass-shootings
mkvirtualenv mass-shootings
pip install -r requirements.txt

Problems installing requirements? You may need to run the pip command as ARCHFLAGS=-Wno-error=unused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future pip install -r requirements.txt to work around an issue with OSX.

Run the notebook

jupyter notebook

The homepage of the notebook should open automatically in your preferred browser. Notebooks generally run on localhost:8888 if it is the sole notebook running.
