# Explained Visually is an experiment in making hard ideas intuitive.

See the live site at setosa.io/ev.

Feel free to post more topic ideas as issues.

## To get setup with the project locally, you'll need to first run

```
npm install
```

Then, fire up the testing web server

```
node server.js --dev=true
```

And also gulp in a seperate terminal tab

```
gulp
```

Now you can open up a browser at `http://localhost:3000/ev/`

to see the site.

To deploy, I run `gulp --no-watch`

to make sure all the static resources are up
to date. then `make export`

to copy all the static files from `_static`

to the
setosa site.
