Weboob installation
===================
Like any setuptools package, Weboob can be installed in normal mode,
or in development mode.
Like any Python package using setuptools, Weboob can be installed in normal or
development mode.
Debian note
-----------
Weboob is distributed with many packages. There is one package for the core
library, many packages for backends (grouped by capabilities), and one package
for each application.
When using Debian, it is advised to use Python Debian packages, and not the PyPI ones.
To achieve this, please install the following packages before installing Weboob:
* python-gdata
Eggs install
------------
normal mode
-----------
Call the helper script which will build the packages and install them all:
Install:
# ./setup.py install --record installed_files.txt
# ./tools/create_all_packages.sh install
The files are simply copied in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Weboob-x.y-py2.5.egg
The --record flag is used to remember which files were copied.
To uninstall:
* remove the Weboob eggs:
# rm -rf /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/weboob_*.egg
* remove the weboob lines in
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/easy-install.pth
Uninstall:
# cat installed_files.txt | xargs rm -rf
development mode
Development mode
----------------
The development mode doesn't copy files, but it creates an egg-link
......@@ -32,9 +31,23 @@ which points to the development directory.
It is useful for development when files often change.
# ./setup.py develop
Creates /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Weboob.egg-link
Creates /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/weboob_dev.egg-link
To uninstall, remove this egg-link and remove the weboob_dev line in
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/easy-install.pth
Debian note
