 [ DEPENDENCIES ]

    - Python 2.7 or newer              http://python.org/
    - Feedparser 5.1.2 or newer        http://code.google.com/p/feedparser/
    - mygpoclient 1.7 or newer         http://gpodder.org/mygpoclient/
    - Python D-Bus bindings

    As an alternative to python-dbus on Mac OS X and Windows, you can use
    the dummy (no-op) D-Bus module provided in "tools/fake-dbus-module/".

    For quick testing, you can use the script tools/localdepends.py to
    install local copies of feedparser and mygpoclient into "src/" from
    PyPI. With this, you get a self-contained gPodder CLI codebase.


 [ GTK UI - ADDITIONAL DEPENDENCIES ]

    - PyGTK 2.16 or newer              http://pygtk.org/


 [ OPTIONAL DEPENDENCIES ]

    - Bluetooth file sending: gnome-obex-send or bluetooth-sendto
    - Size detection on Windows: PyWin32
    - Native OS X support: ige-mac-integration
    - MP3 Player Sync Support: python-eyed3 (0.7 or newer)
    - iPod Sync Support: python-gpod
    - Clickable links in GTK UI show notes: html5lib


 [ BUILD DEPENDENCIES ]

    - help2man
    - intltool


 [ TEST DEPENDENCIES ]

    - python-minimock
    - python-coverage
    - desktop-file-utils

 [ TESTING ]

    To run tests, use...
        make unittest

    To set a specific python binary set PYTHON:
        PYTHON=python2 make unittest

    Tests in gPodder are written in two different ways:

       - doctests (see http://docs.python.org/2/library/doctest.html)
       - unittests (see http://docs.python.org/2/library/unittest.html)

    If you want to add doctests, simply write the doctest and make sure that
    the module appears in "doctest_modules" in src/gpodder/unittests.py. For
    example, the doctests in src/gpodder/util.py are added as 'util' (the
    "gpodder" prefix must not be specified there).

    If you want to add unit tests for a specific module (ex: gpodder.model),
    you should add the tests as gpodder.test.model, or in other words:

        The file       src/gpodder/model.py
        is tested by   src/gpodder/test/model.py

    After you've added the test, make sure that the module appears in
    "test_modules" in src/gpodder/unittests.py - for the example above, the
    unittests in src/gpodder/test/model.py are added as 'model'. For unit
    tests, coverage reporting happens for the tested module (that's why the
    test module name should mirror the module to be tested).


 [ RUNNING AND INSTALLATION ]

    To run gPodder from source, use..

        bin/gpodder              for the Gtk+ UI
        bin/gpo                  for the command-line interface

    To install gPodder system-wide, use "make install". By default, this
    will install *all* UIs and all translations. The following environment
    variables are processed by setup.py:

        LINGUAS                  space-separated list of languages to install
        GPODDER_INSTALL_UIS      space-separated list of UIs to install
        GPODDER_MANPATH_NO_SHARE if set, install manpages to $PREFIX/man/man1

    See setup.py for a list of recognized UIs.

    Example: Install the CLI and Gtk UI with German and Dutch translations:

        export LINGUAS="de nl"
        export GPODDER_INSTALL_UIS="cli gtk"
        make install

    The "make install" target also supports DESTDIR and PREFIX for installing
    into an alternative root (default /) and prefix (default /usr):

        make install DESTDIR=tmp/ PREFIX=/usr/local/


 [ PYTHON 3 SUPPORT ]

    For Python 3 support, we recommend you use gPodder 4.x for now.


 [ PORTABLE MODE / ROAMING PROFILES ]

    The run-time environment variable GPODDER_HOME is used to set
    the location for storing the database and downloaded files.

    This can be used for multiple configurations or to store the
    download directory directly on a MP3 player or USB disk:

        export GPODDER_HOME=/media/usbdisk/gpodder-data/

		
	OS X Specific Notes 
	
		default GPODDER_HOME="$HOME/Library/Application Support/gPodder"
		default GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Library/Application Support/gPodder/download"

		These settings may be modified by editing the following file of the .app : 
			/Applications/gPodder.app/Contents/MacOSX/_launcher
			
		Add and edit the following lines to alter the launch enviroment on OS X : 
			export GPODDER_HOME="$HOME/Library/Application Support/gPodder"
			export GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Library/Application Support/gPodder/download"


 [ CHANGING THE DOWNLOAD DIRECTORY ]

    The run-time environment variable GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR is used to
    set the location for storing the downloads only (independent of the
    data directory GPODDER_HOME):

        export GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=/media/BigDisk/Podcasts/

    In this case, the database and settings will be stored in the default
    location, with the downloads stored in /media/BigDisk/Podcasts/.

    Another example would be to set both environment variables:

        export GPODDER_HOME=~/.config/gpodder/
        export GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=~/Podcasts/

    This will store the database and settings files in ~/.config/gpodder/
    and the downloads in ~/Podcasts/. If GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR is not set,
    $GPODDER_HOME/Downloads/ will be used if it is set.


 [ LOGGING ]

    By default, gPodder writes log files to $GPODDER_HOME/Logs/ and removes
    them after a certain amount of times. To avoid this behavior, you can set
    the environment variable GPODDER_WRITE_LOGS to "no", e.g:

        export GPODDER_WRITE_LOGS=no


 [ EXTENSIONS ]

    Extensions are normally loaded from gPodder's "extensions/" folder (in
    share/gpodder/extensions/) and from $GPODDER_HOME/Extensions/ - you can
    override this by setting an environment variable:

        export GPODDER_EXTENSIONS="/path/to/extension1.py extension2.py"

    In addition to that, if you want to disable loading of all extensions,
    you can do this by setting the following environment variable to a non-
    empty value:

        export GPODDER_DISABLE_EXTENSIONS=yes

    If you want to report a bug, please try to disable all extensions and
    check if the bug still appears to see if an extension causes the bug.
