Some older notes are in PythonWebsiteContentMigration

Where do I put assets? (images, files, html pages, etc)?

In most cases, place them into the same location as the yml and html template files. Pyramid copies them into place automatically. For html trees, place them into a directory that contains a file called NOBUILD. This tells pyramid to just copy the html files instead of trying to process them.

Site-wide and style related images go into in /images instead.

Debugging in Wing IDE

To debug pyramid in Wing IDE, set up a project, add pyramid (or a copy of it) as the main debug file and set the parameters and starting directory in the File Properties (right click on file or file's name in project view). This can help point at problems when running w/ -V doesn't provide enough info. Volunteers ΒΆ
