Web Server Directory

  1. Create a directory/folder named "iiif-workshop"

    Doesn't matter where as long as you'll be able to find it.

    On a Mac in the terminal you can type:

    mkdir iiif-workshop
  2. Change into the "iiif-workshop" directory

    On a Mac:

    cd iiif-workshop
  3. Open an empty file in your text editor

    If you're using Atom you can type:

    atom test.txt
  4. Add any content to your "test.txt" file

  5. Start your local web server if you haven't already that is serving files from your "iiif-workshop" directory.

  6. Open http://localhost:3000 in a browser

    You ought to see the contents of your "iiif-workshop" directory with a file named "text.txt".

    If you used Web Server for Chrome according to the instructions, you can visit http://localhost:3000 or From now on we'll use "localhost" in every case in this workshop, but if that doesn't work, substitute "".

  7. Click on "text.txt"

    You should see the text you added to your file in your browser.

OK! You're all set. We'll use this directory throughout the workshop to edit and deliver files to our browser.
