Setup a development environment


This project uses Node.js, Python 2.7 and some modules. For now, these have to be manually installed.

  • Download Node.js from: https://nodejs.org/en/
  • Install python 2.7.* from: https://www.python.org/
    IMPORTANT: During the installation there is an opt-in to add Python to the path variable. You have to do this otherwise the project can't find Python. If you get errors later call setx PATH "%PATH%;C:\Python33\Scripts" from the terminal. This will add Python to your path.
  • If you don't have Visual Studio installed, npm install --global --production windows-build-tools



  • npm run build-python
  • npm install
  • ./node_modules/.bin/webpack
  • npm run dev (this will run webpack watching for changes while starting the app)
