All in one Windows installer
When working on Windows, the easiest way to get up and running is through
the `Conceptive Python SDK <>`_.
.. image:: ../_static/cpd_installer.png
This SDK is a Python distribution targeted at the development and deployment of QT
based applications. This all in one installation of Camelot with all its
dependencies is available in the `shop <>`_.
From the Python Package Index
First, make sure you have setup tools installed, `Setup tools <>`_.
If you are using a debian based distribution, you can type::
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
Then use easy_install to install Camelot, under Linux this would be done by typing::
sudo easy_install camelot
Linux distributions often offer packages for various applications, including
Camelot and its dependencies :
* `OpenSUSE build service <>`_.
From source
When installing Camelot from source, you need to make sure all dependencies
are installed and available in your **PYTHONPATH**.
Notice that bugs in QT 4.6 and PyQt 4.7 may cause a Camelot application
to crash, so newer versions of those libraries are required.
* QT 4.7
* PyQt 4.8 `PyQt Website <>`_
* SQLAlchemy >= 0.7.7 and < 0.8.0 `SQLAlchemy Website <>`_
* sqlalchemy-migrate 0.7.1
* Jinja2 2.5.5
* chardet 1.0.1
* xlwt 0.7.2
* xlrd 0.7.1
* Elixir 0.7.1 (only needed for examples and default model)
The source code of a release can be downloaded from the
`Python Package Index <>`_ and then
tar xzvf Camelot-10.07.02.tar.gz
**Master branch**
The latest and greatest version of the source can be checked out
from the gitorious repository::
git clone
**Adapting PYTHONPATH**
You need to make sure Camelot and all its dependencies are in the **PYTHONPATH**
before you start using it::
export PYTHONPATH=/home/username/Camelot-10.07.02
export PYTHONPATH=/home/username/Camelot-10.07.02:path to sqlalchemy:path to elxir:...
Verifiy the installation
To verify if you have Camelot installed and available in the **PYTHONPATH**, fire up a
python interpreter::
and issue these commands::
>>> import camelot
>>> print camelot.__version__
>>> import sqlalchemy
>>> print sqlalchemy.__version__
>>> import PyQt4
None of them should raise an ImportError.
