First week or two: getting acclimated

Server / git access

  • Generate SSH key
  • Coordinate with nkinkade about getting on servers
  • Coordinate about getting git access

Get cc packages set up with zc.buildout

Do git checkouts *via ssh* for all of these packages:

  • cc.license
  • cc.licenserdf
  • cc.engine
  • cc.i18n
  • cc.api
  • cc.deedscraper

You should then set up zc.buildout. For more about what zc.buildout is, let's talk on the phone.

 python && ./bin/buildout

Get server running

In cc.engine:

 ./bin/paster serve cc.engine.ini --reload

Get cross-package virtualenv working

This will be important when you have to work on multiple packages that affect each other at once.
