About this repo:
Official repo for designing/developing the restorethefourth.net website. For now, the basic wireframe, layout, and information will be worked on.
This repo was made in direction and response with http://www.reddit.com/r/restorethefourth/
Getting up to speed.
We're using Django. If you aren't familiar it's very well documented.
How to run the dev site on OS X (should work on Linux as well)
This is mostly command line stuff:
If you plan on contributing code you should fork the repo, I will assume you are familiar with that process.
First, make a directory for the project
Now clone the repo, it will clone into a directory named rtf, for the sake of convenience rename this directory to fourth.
git clone https://github.com/100010001/rtf.git mv rtf fourth
Make sure you've installed virtualenv.
Now create a virtualenv:
pip install -r fourth/requirements.txt
Create your local_settings.py file
cp fourth/rtf/local_settings.default fourth/rtf/local_settings.py
From the "fourth" directory, create a database:
Now migrate the database:
./manage.py migrate rtf
Now run the server:
The dev site is now your browser: http://localhost:8000
You'll get a page that looks nothing like the one on restorethefourth.net. You'll need to visit the admin panel and add a new page. Set the slug to "/" and it should take the place of the homepage.

Goals and Plans
What we don't want to do:
We don't want this site to become bloated or watered down. We want to keep it simple and get it up and running quickly to support what's going on in reddit. We want to chose a technology that more than one or two people know so we've got a base that can work on it.

About Restore the Fourth
The best place to read about what restore the fourth stands for is on reddit. We are focussed on these three things:
By exercising our right to vote and peaceful protest, the removal from office of any official in government who acted against our fourth amendment rights. No apologies, no amends, simply removal from office. They have betrayed their oath to protect and defend the constitution, and must be removed.
Repeal the patriot act and other similar laws. If our currently elected representatives will not do so (highly unlikely), than we shall in the course of time elect those who will.
The implementation of a transparent government which respects the fourth amendment and represents the interests of the people of the United States of America.
