Third-party JavaScript - the code

Feedback and comments are welcome.

Third-party JavaScript

Install instructions

You'll need both Python and its packaging library, setuptools, in order to build and serve the example code. On OS X, these come pre-installed. On Windows? See Windows Instructions first.

1) Install the Frozen-Flask Python package.

$ easy_install Frozen-Flask

2) Build the source code examples:

$ python freeze.py

3) Add the following entries to your hosts file:

127.0.0.1 publisher.dev
127.0.0.1 proxy.publisher.dev
127.0.0.1 widget.dev

4) Run the embedded server:

$ python server.py

Once the server is running, access the examples through http://publisher.dev:5000/examples/index.html.

Installing Python on Windows

Download and install Python 2.7.x from the Python download page.

Next, setuptools. Download and run the 2.7.x installer from: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools#downloads

Afterwards, you'll need to add both the Python directory (C:\Python27) and the scripts directory (C:\Python27\Scripts) to your PATH. To do this, go to My Computer ‣ Properties ‣ Advanced ‣ Environment Variables.

You should now be able to run the 'python' and 'easy_install' executables from the Windows shell. Success!
