Getting Started

You can get started with this project by doing the following:

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv mysiteenv
source mysiteenv/bin/activate
pip install Django==1.8.3 startproject --template= mysite -n webpack.config.js
cd mysite
chmod +x
pip install -r requirements.txt
npm install
./ migrate
./ loaddata sites
./ runserver

Static Media

Static media is managed by webpack, and is configured out of the box to watch and rebuild on change by running:

npm run watch

We recommend running that in a separate terminal window than runserver if and when you are editing js or less files.
