This section explains how to set up an environment to work with silme.


You need Python 2.5. Nothing more. For serveral IOClientss and FormatParsers you will need additional modules like MySQLdb for MySQL, pysqlite for SQLite, pysvn for SVN etc.

Linux and MacOS

svn co

And then you can write first

  1. !/usr/bin/python


from mozilla.l10n.object import Entity

def test():

 entity = Entity('id, 'value')

if __name__ == "__main__":


You can also checkout from SVN ./silme/trunk/scripts to see examples. (launch from the directory above ./scripts by: ./scripts/


Not sure... didn't try... should require nothing more than Python.
