kLab Website

This is the public repository for the kLab website hosted at:

Although Nyaruka originally created the website we look forward to having contributions from the Kigali community to enhance it over time. Just use the normal Github fork/pull request process in order to submit patches.

Before embarking on major changes please file a new Issue with your planned enhancement so we can discuss whether it is appropriate.


Getting Started

These instructions are for Unix/OS X, you will have to modify these a bit to get going on Windows. Consult your favorite Windows Python guru for details.

1. Check out the repository:

2. Install poetry and activate the virtual environment and active it:

  % curl -sSL | python3 -
  % poetry shell

3. Initialize it with all the required libraries:

4. Symlink your dev settings file:

  % cd klab
  % ln -s
