Quick Start

It's dead easy to get started with VeriPress:

$ pip3 install veripress  # Install VeriPress
$ mkdir ~/my-veripress  # Create an empty folder as a VeriPress instance
$ cd ~/my-veripress
$ veripress init  # Initialize the VeriPress instance
$ veripress theme install default  # Install the "default" theme
$ veripress preview  # Preview the instance

See documentation for more information on how to use VeriPress.
