After installing Python:
As a Developer, it is best to run the Trunk version of Web2Py, so that you can fine-tune the version that you have installed & get involved with the Web2Py developer community:
git clone https://github.com/mdipierro/web2py.git
Note: HTTPS clones are not read-only (while git:// clones are). They will NOT work if your git is not configured as previously described.
There are occasional issues with the latest Trunk, so you may need to try a slightly older revision. If this is needed, after downloading:
cd web2py git log git checkout <hash>
"git log" shows you a log including the hash-value of every revesion. Checkout sets your working-copy to the revision with the specified hash-value.
As a Developer, you should generally run the Trunk version of Eden, so that you can submit patches against the latest code:
cd web2py/applications git clone https://github.com/flavour/eden.git
NB Note the fact that we ensure that the name of the web2py application has no hyphen in, as otherwise it cannot run under Apache!
For setting up a basic developer environment, with simpler security, it is necessary to edit a configuration file before starting Eden. Edit the web2py/application/eden/models/000_config.py. Look for the line with
FINISHED_EDITING_CONFIG_FILE = False and change False to True. Save the file.
To test your installation of Eden, without Eclipse, you can start web2py from the command line:
cd .. # the web2py main directory python web2py.py
If you want a graphical debugger to set breakpoints & step through code then it is recommended to install Eclipse:
Now, see how to put your installation to work:
