To run the server locally:
$ source env/bin/activate # for virtualenv $ pip install -r requirements.txt # to install libraries $ ./manage.py createdb $ ./manage.py seed $ ./manage.py server
The server will listen on http://localhost:5000.
If you are running into issues - see

Some useful things for developers to know:
- Testing with ok-client
- To test with ok-client, please follow the instructions for the ok-client repo here.
- Once you are inside the virtual environment for ok-client, you can make a new binary by using the command
- Start the local ok server.
- When running the ok binary, add the flags
--insecure --server localhost:<port>to point it to the running ok-server
- To find demo assignments that you can use the binary with, look in ok-client/demo
