Installing Heralding

To install the latest stable (well, semi-stable) version, use pip:

pip install heralding

Make sure that requirements and pip is installed. Simple way to do this on a Debian-based OS is:

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt

And finally start the honeypot:

mkdir tmp
cd tmp
sudo heralding
