Installation on MacOSX

Before you begin

  1. You will propably need the GIS features of Eden. Before you proceed install the GDAL framework

  1. You also need to install some modules of python

STATIC_DEPS=true sudo easy_install lxml

  • sudo easy_install shapely , also install the same way reportlab ,geraldo , pyserial , tweepy , xlwt

3.In case you want to use PostgreSQL - PostGIS ( i assume you already installed the spatial modules before)

Install the one clickInstaller sponsored by EnterpriseDB PostgreSQL and select also installation of postgis. Then based on this article install the python database driver

sudo easy_install pip

PATH=$PATH:/Library/PostgreSQL/8.4/bin/ sudo pip install psycopg2

defaults write Prefer-32-Bit -bool yes

without the last you will not be able to see available the PostgreSQL driver when web2py launch

Download Sahana Eden

If NOT being a Developer, then you can get the last stable release from:

NB The file should end in .w2p - if you have a trailing .gz after that, then remove it from the filename

Install Web2Py

NB This isn't well-tested...may be better off downloading the Source version:

Launch Web2Py

  • Select a Password
  • 'click here for the administrative interface'
  • Enter same password

Install Sahana

  • upload application:
  • rename it: eden
  • submit



  • lxml can give trouble on OS X. Try:
    • STATIC_DEPS=true sudo easy_install lxml (adapted from this blog post)
    • remove other libxml2 versions, such as may have been installed by fink or MacPorts - ONLY works in unmodified python setup. In case you have modified your python you must link some how the python directory with /frameworks/python otherwise lxml will not being found(not tested)
