Hacking

Build

The API uses many critical resources that must be downloaded and/or prepared to be used. To do that, just run this command in the root path of the project

  1. Install all building dependencies: pyparsing, epydoc, sphinx.

    • (ubuntu 12.04):

      $ sudo apt-get install python-qt4 qt4-dev-tools python-qt4-dev pyqt4-dev-tools
      $ sudo apt-get install python-distutils-extra
      $ sudo easy_install pyparsing epydoc sphinx
  2. Run the build command:

    $ cd ../../
    $ make build

For more details check Makefile

Install

To install the API from the source (After Build ):

$ sudo python setup.py install

A console interface will be installed automatically with the API:

$ alfanous-console -h
usage: alfanous-console [flags]

note: if you are looking for alfanous legacy code, you can find it under legacy branch
