] configuration, plugins/extensions etc that are running at ie.ckan.net?

I just tried, and failed to make a suitable theme. The whole template
and CSS setup is very complicated, but then I always find that sort of
thing fiddly. In any case, I've a repository here, and I noted down a
recipe for setting it up whilst doing it, see below.


virtualenv ie.ckan.net
cd ie.ckan.net
. ./bin/activate

cat > pip-requirements.txt <<EOF
-e hg+https://knowledgeforge.net/okfn/vdm@vdm-0.7#egg=vdm

-e hg+ssh://hg@bitbucket.org/ww/ckan-harp#egg=harp

pip install -r pip-requirements.txt
paster make-config ckan development.ini
cp src/ckan/who.ini .

## change this line in development.ini to get errors in the browser
# set debug = true
## set up the theme
# extra_template_paths = %(here)s/src/ckan-harp/theme/templates
# extra_public_paths = %(here)s/src/ckan-harp/theme/public
## make sure the database config is sensible

## make sure postgresql is running then do this:
paster --plugin=ckan db init

## run the development server
paster --plugin=ckan serve development.ini

# point a web browser at http://localhost:5000/
