Clone repository, install virtual environment, install requirements, configure your system for Amazon S3, and run a test server.
Tarbell is a Python library based on Flask which powers static sites. Truth be told, it doesn’t do much on its own except read a directory and render templates in any subdirectory it finds a config.py file. To see Tarbell in action, you should probably start with the Tarbell template, which sets up an Amazon S3 publishing workflow and basic framework for building modern web apps using Tarbell.
Make sure you have python (2.6+), git, pip, virtualenv and virtualenv-wrapper installed on your system.
git clone https://github.com/newsapps/tarbell cd tarbell mkvirtualenv tarbell pip install -r requirements.txt python runserver.py
