Acrylamid doesn't reinvent the wheel. It integrates a lot of useful projects to provide a feature-rich user experience. You can use acrylamid in a very minimalistic way and write your posts in plain markdown or add more expensive features you may not have with dynamic web pages such as code highlighting, typography, mathml and hyphenation. See :doc:`about` for an overview of the third-party libraries used in Acrylamid.
Linux/Debian and OS X
You'll need the python interpreter with version ≥ 2.6 and a python package
manager. If you are on Linux (Debian-based), just
apt-get install python
python-setuputils. If you are using OS X the proper Python version is
already installed (10.6 or later).
$> easy_install -U acrylamid
And you are done with the simplest setup (by the way even markdown and translitcodec are not must-have dependency).
translitcodec egg after you started writing your blog. It
might break all your permanent links.
Additional Supported Modules
|AsciiMathML to MathML||asciimathml|
|cyrillic/chinese ascii slugs||unidecode|
|exact YAML parser||PyYAML|
If you write in your native language, it is better to install
a better ASCII transcription of your characters. This is only required for the
safe slug to your post.
As of release of 0.3.4 Acrylamid has experimental support for Python 3. Although most parts of Acrylamid work with Python 3, it is not actively tested and maintained. I hope 2to3 gets automatically applied, if not:
$ 2to3 -wn -x execfile acrylamid/ $ python setup.py install
