Running the application

Just run honcho start

It will start both uWSGI server and grunt. This will watch the filesystem for changes in the source folders and regenerate the client-side target files as needed.

The API will be available on http://localhost:5000 (The port can be overridden by the $PORT environment variable). The web app is available at http://localhost:8082
