Other notes

I have had to install nose and rednose in virtualenvs because they refer to python and were leaving the virtualenv
I had problem with depdancies that was caused by modules not specfying the version of pytz required. To resolve I had to remove than manually install the one I wanted.

  1. sudo pip install -r ./src/requirments.txt


pip check version

  1. pip show modulename

Simple web server

Used for SOA Component Viewer
