Install required OS packages¶
Some requirements to get installed, they might be in your package manager:
sudo apt-get install python-dev sudo apt-get install python-pip
These are required for the Python package lxml:
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev sudo apt-get install libxslt-dev
For getting this running on your local machine, the easy way to do that is setting up the virtualenvwrapper first.
virtualenvwrappers are isolated Python environments. This helps isolate your dependencies, especially when used with pip. virtualenvwrapper provides some convenient short-hand shell commands to make virtualenv nicer to use.
If you are on Mac OS X or Linux, the following command will work for you in creating a virtualenv
$ sudo pip install virtualenvwrapper
Set up virtualenvwrapper¶
In your shell initialisation file (eg. ~/.bashrc), add two lines like this:
export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh
(Change the path to virtualenvwrapper.sh depending on where it was installed by pip.)
WORKON_HOME is a directory where virtualenvwrapper is going to collect the virtualenvs that you use it to create.
virtualenvwrapper provides the following commands:
mkvirtualenv foo rmvirtualenv foo workon foo # activate the virtualenv called foo deactivate # whatever the currently active virtualenv is
Create a new virtualenv for project:
$ mkvirtualenv myproject New python executable in myproject/bin/python Installing setuptools............done. Installing pip...............done. $ cd myproject $ cdvirtualenv
Now, whenever you want to work on a project, you only have to activate the corresponding environment. On OS X and Linux, do the following
$ . venv/bin/activate
If you are a Ubuntu user, the following command is for you
$ workon myproject (myproject)$
Either way, you should now be using your virtualenv (notice how the prompt of your shell has changed to show the active environment).
How to install Nereid Project¶
Nereid Project(a Project management system), has been implemented as a Web application to be accessed using a web browser.
To experience this you should have installed
tryton client. Following
commands is to be followed for installing Nereid Project’s desktop client.
Nereid project can be installed like any other tryton module or python package as it comes bundled with a setup.py script. Alternatively the latest released version published to PYPI can be installed using PIP.
$ pip install trytond_nereid_project
A few seconds later and you are good to go.
So to start with, install following:
pip install psycopg2 pip install blinker
Both above packages should be installed by default but just in case to make sure, it they were not, they get installed in your current working environment.
Now, nereid-project is installed, to run the web app, Project Management system, refer Getting Started.
