Flask/React Twitter grid

Project description

FRTG - Flask/React Twitter Grid

Overview

This is a basic project for serving a npm-managed React app with Flask. It renders twitter query results in a grid in a way convenient for diplaying on a kiosk or large screen.

Package-based installation

Create a (python 3) virtualenv and install using one of the following methods:

From PyPi

$ pip install frtg

From Source

$ python setup.py sdist
$ pip install dist/frtg-x.y.z.tar.gz

Running

Configuration

Use config-example.json as a template to create a configuration file. When running the server an environment variable called CONFIG_FILENAME and containing the path to this configuration file must be present.

Starting the Server

CONFIG_FILENAME=config.json FLASK_APP=frtg flask run

Note: if you are running from a source distribution and didn't install it in your virtualenv, you should execute the above from the top-level folder.

Alternatively, using the provided app.py might sometimes be convenient when developing:

CONFIG_FILENAME=config.json python frtg/app.py

or:

CONFIG_FILENAME=config.json python -m frtg.app
