[ DEPENDENCIES ] - Python 2.6 or newer http://python.org/ - "sqlite3" Python module (usually included with Python) - Feedparser 5.1.2 or newer http://code.google.com/p/feedparser/ - mygpoclient 1.4 or newer http://thp.io/2010/mygpoclient/ - Python D-Bus bindings gPodder might still work with Python 2.5, but you may need to install the json module ("simplejson") manually. We reserve the right to drop support for Python 2.5 in future point releases. 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/WebUI codebase. [ GTK UI - ADDITIONAL DEPENDENCIES ] - PyGTK 2.12 or newer http://pygtk.org/ [ QML UI - ADDITIONAL DEPENDENCIES ] - Qt 4.7.1 or newer http://qt.nokia.com/ - PySide 1.0.8 or newer http://www.pyside.org/ - Qt Mobility 1.2 or newer http://qt.gitorious.org/qt-mobility - Qt Quick Components http://qt.gitorious.org/qt-components The QML UI depends on the QtMultimediaKit QML bindings for playing back audio (libdeclarative-multimedia in Debian) and on the WebKit QML bindings for Flattr integration (libqtwebkit-qmlwebkitplugin in Debian). The QML UI now also depends on Qt Quick Components. On MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan, these components are pre-installed. You can install them on your Desktop by checking out the code from the qt-components Git repository and running the "./configure" script with the "-meego" parameter (+ the usual make install). You might also need to copy the theme from /usr/share/themes/blanco/ on a MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan device to your development machine in order for all UI elements to be displayed correctly. Alternatively, you can use the free "darko" theme from: https://github.com/jpavelek/meego-handset-theme-darko [ OPTIONAL DEPENDENCIES ] - Bluetooth file sending: gnome-obex-send or bluetooth-sendto - HTML shownotes: python-webkit - Flattr integration: python-webkit - Size detection on Windows: PyWin32 - Native OS X support: ige-mac-integration [ BUILD DEPENDENCIES ] - help2man - intltool [ TEST DEPENDENCIES ] - python-minimock - python-coverage [ TESTING ] To run tests, use... make unittest To set a specific python binary set PYTHON: PYTHON=python2 make unittest [ RUNNING AND INSTALLATION ] To run gPodder from source, use.. bin/gpodder for the Gtk+ UI bin/gpodder --qml for the QML 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 ] The CLI version of gPodder (bin/gpo) and the QML UI are compatible with Python 3 after converting the codebase with the 2to3 utility: 2to3 -w bin/* src share/gpodder/extensions You will also need a copy of "mygpoclient" converted using 2to3 and a copy of "feedparser" converted using 2to3 (see the feedparser README for details on how to get it set up on Python 3, including sgmllib). Please note that the Gtk UI is not compatible with Python 3 (it will be once we migrate the codebase to Gtk3/GObject Introspection). The QML UI has been tested with PySide (Git revision a90f3bc) and Python 3.2.2 - you can use the PySide buildscripts to build PySide: http://github.com/PySide/BuildScripts As of February 2012, Python 3 support is still experimental. Please report any bugs that you find to the gPodder bug tracker (see below). [ 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/ [ 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. [ TRANSLATIONS ] These instructions are mostly useful for the maintainer, but they are documented here in case you want to update translations yourself: To upload a changed translation template: make messages # update translations from source make clean # remove temporary files after "make messages" tx push --source # upload po/messages.pot to transifex.net To download a translation that has been updated: tx pull -l XX -f # download po/XX.po from transifex.net To generate Git commit commands for the translation updates: python tools/i18n/generate_commits.py The "tx" command is provided by the Transifex client (transifex-client in Debian/Ubuntu) which can be obtained from: http://help.transifex.com/features/client/ [ MORE INFORMATION ] - Homepage http://gpodder.org/ - Bug tracker http://bugs.gpodder.org/ - Mailing list http://freelists.org/list/gpodder - IRC channel #gpodder on irc.freenode.net ............................................................................
