The horizon directory holds the generic libraries and components that can be used in any Django project.

The openstack_dashboard directory contains a reference Django project that uses horizon.

The dot files contain information for various development tools such as git and testr.

Requirements, setup files, tox are used for building the project and its documentation. *.rst files contain documentation.
