Occidentalis is a collection of packages intended for use on a Raspberry Pi
running the latest version of the Raspbian distribution. By default, it
installs a collection of development tools and a configuration helper called
occi. It also provides a custom kernel build and configuration helpers for
various Adafruit products.

Check out our Pi Finder, a graphical, cross-platform tool for locating a Raspberry Pi on your network and configuring it with Occidentalis.
The Easy Way (Command Line Edition)
On your Raspberry Pi, open a terminal and enter the following:
sudo -s echo "deb http://apt.adafruit.com/raspbian/ wheezy main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list wget -O - -q https://apt.adafruit.com/apt.adafruit.com.gpg.key | apt-key add - apt-get update apt-get install occidentalis
There's also a handy installation script to do the same thing. You can inspect it with:
curl -SLs https://apt.adafruit.com/install | less
And, assuming you trust us, run it with:
curl -SLs https://apt.adafruit.com/install | sudo bash
