Notes for InstructorsΒΆ

To regenerate the session site and downloads:

aptitude install python-sphinx
# TODO: this wasn't really supposed to get checked in...
bzr revert sample_data.csv
make html # to just build the HTML site
make download # to build the HTML site and create a download

To serve it on the day of the lesson:

$ aptitude install nginx

Then use this nginx config-file:

server {
        #listen   80; ## listen for ipv4; this line is default and implied
        #listen   [::]:80 default ipv6only=on; ## listen for ipv6

        root /usr/share/nginx/2daypython;
        index index.html index.htm;

        # Make site accessible from http://localhost/
        server_name localhost sturm.local;

        location / {
                # First attempt to serve request as file, then
                # as directory, then fall back to index.html
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;


And link /usr/share/nginx/2daypython to your _build/html directory:

$ sudo ln -s /home/mcfletch/2day-dev/_build/html /usr/share/nginx/2daypython
