Fast local setup

You can start this website locally by using these easy steps (python3 is needed):

  • Create virtual environment (if needed) with virtualenv venv, activate it and install dependencies with pip install -r requirements.txt;
  • At the top of project/ set EASY_RUN_MODE from False to True;
  • Start server withpython runserver or python runserver to open it to local network (for example, over wifi).
