Development setup

Setting up a development environment is as simple as four easy steps.

  1. Clone repo (recursively; it contains submodules)
  2. Install dependencies
  3. Build reST files from JSON files
  4. Build HTML files from reST files

All of these steps are explained in detail below.

First, pull down this repo's code:

$ git clone --recursive

Then, install the dependencies for building this site. It is recommended to install all the requirements inside virtualenv, use virtualenvwrapper to manage virtualenvs. Building requires Python 3.5

First of all, create a virtual environment to install all the dependencies into either using virtualenvwrapper:

$ mkvirtualenv -p python3 pyvideo

... or using pyvenv:

$ pyvenv .env && source .env/bin/activate

From the root of the repo, run the following command:

$ pip install -r requirements/

Finally, you'll be able to generate the HTML site. From the root of the repo, run the following command:

$ make html

To view the site, run the following command:

$ make serve

This will start development server on port 8000. Goto browser and open http://localhost:8000 to view your local version of!


If you're trying to debug unexpected build results, you can pass one of two variables to the make process to influence to logging level:

# Show Pelican warnings
$ make VERBOSE=1 html

# Show even more output
$ make DEBUG=1 html

Accessibility tests

There are automated tests to ensure that none of the pages have significant accessibility problems; to run them:

  1. Download chromedriver and add it to your PATH environment variable (copy to /usr/local/bin, etc.)
  2. Run make test
