Some updates to dpxdt

I landed a few updates to Depicted today:

  • We now use virtualenv to manage dependencies. No more git submodules! That was a huge mistake. At the time (two years ago) I thought pip was just as bad. But now I'm fine with it.
  • I rewrote the deployment instructions to use App Engine Managed VMs. It's now 10x easier to deploy. Still non-trivial because Google's Cloud Console is so complicated.
  • Instructions for local dpxdt are now at the top of the README, thanks to Dan. I moved the whole set of dpxdt local instructions over. Hopefully this will make the project less scary for newbies.

What's left: Make it so you can install the whole server with pip install dpxdt_server and be done with it.
