This package contains the source for dupeGuru. To learn how to build it, refer to the "Build dupeGuru" section. Below is the description of the various subfolders:

- core: Contains the core logic code for dupeGuru. It's Python code written in TDD style.
- core_*: Edition-specific-cross-toolkit code written in Python.
- cocoa: UI code for the Cocoa toolkit. It's Objective-C code.
- qt: UI code for the Qt toolkit. It's written in Python and uses PyQt.
- images: Images used by the different UI codebases.
- debian_*: Skeleton files required to create a .deb package
- help: Help document, written for Sphinx.

There are also other sub-folder that comes from external repositories (automatically checked out
with as mercurial subrepos):

- hscommon: A collection of helpers used across HS applications.
- cocoalib: A collection of helpers used across Cocoa UI codebases of HS applications.
- qtlib: A collection of helpers used across Qt UI codebases of HS applications.

dupeGuru Dependencies

Before being able to build dupeGuru, a few dependencies have to be installed:

General dependencies

- Python 3.1 (
- Send2Trash3k (
- hsaudiotag3k 1.1.0 (for ME) (
- jobprogress (
- Sphinx 1.0.6 (
- pytest 2.0.0, to run unit tests. (

Note: Sphinx doesn't officially support Python 3.x yet, but it doesn't matter because it is invoked
by the build system through command line, so you can build dupeGuru even if Sphinx is installed in
your Python 2.x install.

OS X prerequisites

- XCode 3.1 (
- Sparkle (
- PyObjC 2.3 (
- py2app 0.5.4 (
- appscript 0.22.0 for ME and PE (

Windows prerequisites

- Visual Studio 2008 (Express is enough) is needed to build C extensions. (
- PyQt 4.7.5 (
- cx_Freeze, if you want to build a exe. You don't need it if you just want to run dupeGuru. (
- Advanced Installer, if you want to build the installer file. (

Building dupeGuru

First, make sure you meet the dependencies listed in the section above. Then you need to configure your build with:

If you want, you can specify a UI to use with the `--ui` option. So, if you want to build dupeGuru with Qt on OS X, then you have to type `python --ui=qt`. You can also use the `--dev` flag to indicate a dev build (it will build `dg_cocoa.plugin` in alias mode and use the "dev" config in XCode).

Then, just build the thing and then run it with:
