Because each user has its own ourbigbook.json file added to the directory, you can for example build each user directory in isolation with:
cd web/tmp/demo/barack-obama
ourbigbook .
This setup can be useful for quickly testing things locally, and in particular to test -W, --web upload to a local test server.
These files have nothing to do with OurBigBook Web specifically, and would be used from OurBigBook CLI itself. It would be nice to bring them up to OurBigBook CLI at some point, and only expose the Web-specific database functions from Web.
