Ptah is a fast, fun, open source high-level Python web development environment. Ptah is built on top of the Pyramid web framework. Ptah's goal is to make developing interactive web sites and applications fun.
Ptah is loosely affiliated with the Pyramid, Django, Drupal and Zope/Plone communities.
You will need git, python 2.7 and a new version of virtualenv.
Before we start lets review what the structure will look like after you complete the instructions:
venv/ Include/ Lib/ site-packages/ bin/ python pip paster ptah/ setup.py ptah/ docs/ myapp/ setup.py development.ini myapp/
You may ask, Why the duplication of nested folders? It's how Python packages are structured.
On Windows you will have a venv/Scripts directory not a venv/bin directory.
Lets do the needful:
$ curl -k -O https://raw.github.com/pypa/virtualenv/master/virtualenv.py $ python2.7 virtualenv.py --no-site-packages venv $ cd venv venv$ git clone git://github.com/ptahproject/ptah.git venv$ cd ptah venv/ptah$ ../bin/python setup.py develop
If you like tests, run the tests:
venv/ptah$ ../bin/python setup.py test
Use paster to create your own application. The default username is admin and password is 12345. Check myapp/__init__.py for more information:
venv/ptah$ cd .. venv$ bin/paster create -t ptahdemo myapp venv$ cd myapp venv/myapp$ ../bin/python setup.py develop
Start application via Paster:
venv/myapp$ cd .. venv$ bin/paster serve myapp/development.ini --reload
Login by opening your web browser to http://localhost:6543/ with credentials, login admin and password 12345
You should read the source of myapp, after all it is your application. A good place to start is myapp/__init__.py
