0:00 So you've seen how to create a Pyramid website using Cookiecutter, virtual environments and what not on the command line. Let's review those steps
0:09 so that you have a nice, clear series to follow. Okay, so, what do we do? We started by sayin' we're going to use Cookiecutter
0:17 and we're going to need a template to work with. So I use the Pyramid Cookiecutter starter template.
0:21 Just copy that URL and we're going to feed it to Cookiecutter,. You can use any one of the five actually
0:27 if you feel they match what you're doing better. So we got to make sure we have Cookiecutter installed. So pip install cookiecutter
0:35 maybe throw a -U for upgrade a --user so it doesn't require sudo things like that. But here we go it's going to get it going. That's great.
0:45 We pip install cookiecutter and then we're going to create the scaffolding. We want to create the site using Cookiecutter.
0:52 So we'll say cookiecutter and we'll give it the URL to the template. It's going to ask a bunch of questions. If you want to follow along
0:59 make sure you choose 2 here for your project otherwise there's going to be trouble. Alright, great, so you choose that you answer the various questions
1:08 and it gives you a few steps to follow after that. It says go to the project, create a virtual environment. Make sure you upgrade pip inside of tools
1:17 because Python doesn't do that for you. How frustrating but that's the way it goes. And then, once you've registered the project
1:26 we'll be up and running and then you can serve it up. Oh, what's that look like? Well, we're going to run Python3 -m venv.
1:36 Some versions of Mac and Python intersected with PyCharm all require this --copies. If you have the latest version of everything
1:45 you don't need it but you can throw that on there if you're finding you're having trouble. So we're going to create our virtual environment
1:51 and we can activate it. Say source .env/bin/activate on Mac or Linux on Windows it's just .env\scripts\activate.bat
2:02 and then you can ask well which Python or where Python should be the one in your virtual environment. Then final step is to install the dependencies
2:10 install Pyramid, and to register the site with Python. So Python develop. Everything should be up and running and working.
2:22 It's just time to serve up your app. Open the web server and start interacting with it. So pserve and give it one of your configurations
2:30 probably development.ini. What'd you get? Well you get your site up and running of course. So really nice, here we are on the close
2:38 looking at our starter project just like we did in the demo.
