funfactory is project that makes playdoh fun. You import it within a Django manage.py file and it sets up the playdoh environment and configures some settings.
pip install funfactory
What is it?
funfactory is the core of playdoh, Mozilla's Django starter kit. funfactory is not a collection of standalone apps.
Check out the playdoh docs for a complete user guide.
funfactory is also the name of a script that automates the installation of a new Playdoh app. Check out funfactory --help for more info.
To develop new features for playdoh core, you'll want to hack on funfactory! To run the test suite, first install tox then cd into the root dir and type the tox command. The tox.ini will handle the rest.
Note: if you supply a different playdoh remote URL or a different branch or something, remember to delete the .playdoh/ directory between tests for a clean slate.
To try out cutting edge funfactory features in a real playdoh app, you can use the develop command to install a link to the files within your virtualenv:
python setup.py develop
