If you want to become a project contributor you might want to have a look at this:
- Project page: http://owtf.org
- Github page: https://github.com/7a/owtf
- owtf git installation script (very basic atm): owtf_dir/install/install_git.sh
- GIT installation/setup instructions: http://help.github.com/linux-set-up-git/
Development IDE: Eclipse + PyDev
Installation steps (should work fine on Ubuntu / Backtrack / Kali Linux):
- apt-get install eclipse
- Install Pydev plugin using the guide present here (Better to install with update site)
- Use this guide to configure the python interpreter for Pydev. (Make sure you use Python 2.7 for OWTF development).
- Right click on code window > Preferences > Click on Show whitespace characters and make sure that Insert spaces for tabs is ENABLED!!!
- Ensure that 1 tab is replaced by 4 spaces.
- You might find the following helpful to have word wrap working in Eclipse: http://ahtik.com/blog/projects/eclipse-word-wrap/
- External library method/properties completion: Project > PyDev - PYTHON PATH > External libraries tab > Add Source Folder: /usr/share/pyshared/twisted (for twisted completion, location on bactrack 5)
