Hello Nir,

just copied:

     external_resources = os.path.abspath("./resources")
     url_mapping = {"file:///resources/": "file:///%s/" % external_resources}

So I think the directory resources should be under the wiki directory, parallel to the data directory. Is that correct?

I had to include an import to os, but then the code could be interpreted fine.
