|Version 56 (modified by 11 years ago) ( diff ),|
This virtual machine has been built to allow Developers to get operational quickly (1 Gb compressed):
New usage notes are available here and are in the process of being migrated to this page.
- The ubuntu user and the admin account of web2py have the password set to: eden
- The web2py directory on the desktop contains the web2py release and a bzr branch of Eden Trunk located in
- Eclipse is preconfigured with the above directory.
- The normal way to launch Web2Py in this environment is to launch Eclipse & start up the Debugger.
- You can view the filesystem by clicking on the 'PyDev' button in the top-right.
- Firefox is pre-populated with Eden bookmarks.
- Run code and OS updates
Note: If you get a ticket when running the application for the 1st time with a message like "OperationalError: Cannot add a UNIQUE column" then you need to stop the debugger, delete the contents of the databases folder & then start debugging again (there was an old database accidentally left on the system which cannot be auto-migrated - a new image without this issue has been uploaded):
rm -rf ~/Desktop/web2py/applications/eden/databases/*
If you get an error like "AttributeError: SQLCustomType instance has no attribute 'startswith'" then:
cd ~/Desktop/web2py/gluon rm sql.py wget http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/sql.py
Then can proceed as above: Stop Eclipse, empty databases folder & restart Eclipse
A new image without this issue has now been uploaded.
