#Wave Extensions Gallery

This app is meant to be an index of and (in the case of gadgets) storage for wave extensions. Users can sign in and favorite extensions. Developers can add their extensions to the gallery. Wave clients can pull gadgets and gadget data from the gallery. Having a central source for extensions eliminates the need for wave clients to keep their own lists of gadgets.

(Note: This has not all been implemented, but it will be.)


###External libraries

These allow extension descriptions to be rendered properly. This assumes you have already cloned

####Python Markdown

  1. Download Waylan Limberg's Python Markdown implementation from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Markdown
