Your Wave release download ships with over 150 examples.
You can play around with these examples in your browser using
tour.py, a Python script (itself a Wave app) located in
To run the tour, as with any Wave app, we need to start both the Wave server (
waved) and the tour (
tour.py). Let's go ahead and do that.
Step 1: Start the Wave server
To start the Wave server, simply open a new terminal window and execute
waved.exe on Windows).
The Wave server should now be running at http://localhost:10101.
Don't close this terminal window!
To run any Wave app, you need the Wave server up and running at all times. Your web browser communicates with the Wave server, and the Wave server in turn communicates with the Wave app.
Step 2: Run the tour
First, create a virtual environment, install the tour's dependencies.
Do this from a new terminal window!
Finally, run the tour:
Step 3: Enjoy the tour
Go to http://localhost:10101/tour to access the tour.
tour.py is an ordinary Wave app that runs other apps. The tour itself runs at the route
/tour, and each of the examples runs at
To play with the tour's active example in isolation, simply open a new browser tab and head to http://localhost:10101/demo.
In this section, we started the Wave server and then launched
tour.py to experience the tour. In general, this is how you'd typically launch any app, including your own. There is nothing special about
tour.py. In fact, to run any example, all you need to do is repeat the steps above in a new terminal window. For example, to run
todo.py, simply run:
You can now access the example at http://localhost:10101/demo. Simple!
