If you are a developer and want to help build CodaLab, this page will explain how to to get started.
CodaLab is built with Python, supporting development on local machines with Windows, Linux, Mac and BSD. If something is broken, please open a new issue.
In this section, we will walk you through installing Python 2.7.x, installing prerequisites, and running the CodaLab site in a local virtual environment.
Assuming a fresh Windows environment the following should get you started:
Install Python 2.7. Be sure to select the appropriate installer for your architecture. This typically will install to C:\Python27. The rest of these instructions will assume that you have installed to this path.
First install distribute_setup.py. Download the file at the following URL: http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py and run it from a shell from the directory into which it was downloaded:
This will put easy_install.exe in the _Scripts _directory of your Python installation.
Next, you're ready to install **pip.py**from a command prompt:
1. Next install [virtualenv](http://www.virtualenv.org/)
cd C:\Python27\Scripts pip install virtualenv
