Start the server

Set an environment variable with your Algorithmia API Key

Obtain a free API Key for Algorithmia at https://algorithmia.com/user#credentials, or by logging into your Algorithmia.com account and clicking your profile image, then "Manage API Keys".

Next, create an environment variable "ALGORITHMIA_API_KEY" and set its value to your key ("sim...").

In OSX or Linux:

export "ALGORITHMIA_API_KEY"="sim..."

In Windows:

set "ALGORITHMIA_API_KEY"="sim..."

Run the Flask server

In your application's root directory, run "python app.py"

Test out the webapp

Open a web browser and browse to http://127.0.0.1:5000 -- if all has gone well, you should now see a login screen:

Register with a new email address and password, and experiment with changing your profile image, name and bio. If all runs smoothly, pat yourself on the back: you've just created a fullstack app which leverages Algorithmia's powerful machine learning! And, if anything isn't working right, compare it to the reference repo with the completed code.
