Developer Installation

1. Get the code and install it:

   We recommend installing using pip and virtualenv::
      # grab the install requirements from the ckan mercurial repo
      # Or checkout the mercurial repo directly!
      # create a virtualenv to install into
      virtualenv pyenv-ckan
      # install using pip-requirements
      pip -E pyenv-ckan install -r pip-requirements.txt

3. Make a config file as follows::

      # NB: you need to activate the virtualenv
      paster --plugin ckan make-config ckan {your-config.ini}

4. Tweak the config file as appropriate and then setup the application::

      paster --plugin ckan setup-app {your-config.ini}

   NB: you'll need to setup a database -- see sqlalchemy.url config option.
   We support only PostgreSQL at this time. You'll need to install the relevant
   python library (eg. On debiani/ubuntu: python-psycopg2)

   NB: You may also need to create the Pylon's cache directory specified by
   cache_dir in the config file.

5. Run the webserver::

      paster serve {your-config.ini} 

6. Point your browser at: localhost:5000 (if you set a different port in your
   config file then youl will need to change 5000 to whatever port value you


Make sure you've created a config called development.ini, then:: 

    nosetests ckan/tests
