Install Guide

  1. Clone Project to Local Machine
git clone
  1. Install XAMPP to serve Apache webserver. The /webroot folder needs to be served as static content.
  2. Move project into apache webroot or at least ensure webroot folder is served on localhost using apache.
  3. The frontend is now being served.

Install Flask (Python Backend)

  1. Ensure Python3 is installed.
  2. Ensure mySQL is installed.
  3. Create database in mySQL with any name, like textbook_town.
  4. Add pip dependencies (while in Flask-backend folder) sudo pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  5. Modify in the backend folder with the correct mySQL information (constant DATABASE_LOGIN_STRING)
  6. Run database install commands:
nick@Nicks-MacBook-Pro-2:/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/elixir/Flask-backend$ python3
Python 3.4.3 (v3.4.3:9b73f1c3e601, Feb 23 2015, 02:52:03) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin
