You need Python 2.6.
To check out playdoh, run:
git clone --recursive git://github.com/mozilla/playdoh.git
This project is set up to use a vendor library, i.e. a subdirectory
that contains all pure Python libraries required by this project. The recursive
checkout will also clone these requirements.
In addition, there are compiled libraries (such as Jinja2) that you will need
to build yourself, either by installing them from
pypi or by using your
favorite package manager for your OS.
For development, you can run this in a virtualenv environment:
easy_install pip pip install -r requirements/compiled.txt
For more information on vendor libraries, read :ref:`packages`.
Starting a project based on playdoh
The default branch of playdoh is
base. To start a new project, you fork
playdoh and start working on your app in
master (branched from base). If
you start adding pieces that should go back into playdoh, you can apply the
patch to base and move it upstream.
Eventually you'll probably diverge enough that you'll want to delete the base branch.
Publishing your repo
git remote rename origin playdoh git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:mozilla/foobar.git git push -u origin base
