Running locally

1. Prerequisites

2. Cloning

To clone SpongeHome and get all of it's dependencies you can run:

go get

3. Installing Gulp

To watch and compile the SASS files you will need Gulp installed.

npm install gulp --global
npm install

Now you are ready to use Gulp.

4. Using Gulp

For just building the sass files use gulp build. For watching the sass files use gulp watch - This will keep building the sass files as you edit them.

5. Running the application

To run SpongeHome, you can run go run spongehome.go in terminal, or the command line. SpongeHome will now be running locally on port 4000.

NOTE: You will need to rerun this when you make a change to the Golang source.
