Installation instructions

It is usually suggested to install a package like appypi in a virtualenv. It is still possible here, but it is recommended to use the meta-style installation process.

Meta-style

As appypi is an app installer, you can use it to install itself. This way, your installation is consistent and you keep everything in the dedicated database. Here is a little script to do this in one shot. You need at least pip version 0.8.1 to do that:

virtualenv -q /tmp/appypi-venv &&
source /tmp/appypi-venv/bin/activate &&
pip -q install appypi &&
appypi install appypi &&
deactivate

After that, you can begin to :ref:`use appypi <usage-label>`, as it is callable in your PATH.

Usual suspects: pip and distribute

To install appypi for your user only, type:

$ pip install appypi --user

To install appypi system-wide, just type:

$ sudo pip install appypi

If no pip available, try easy_install:

$ sudo easy_install appypi

Play the game

If you want to code, hack, enhance or just understand appypi, you can get the latest code at Github:

$ git clone http://github.com/stephanepechard/appypi

Then create the local virtualenv and install appypi:

$ cd appypi && source bootstrap && fab install
