Silme:Tutorial:Setting up environment
This section explains how to set up an environment to work with silme.
You need Python 2.5. Nothing more. For serveral IOClients and FormatParsers you will need additional modules like MySQLdb for MySQL, pysqlite for SQLite, pysvn for SVN etc.
Linux and MacOS
hg clone http://hg.mozilla.org/users/zbraniecki_mozilla.com/silme
And then you can write first example.py:
sys.path.append('./lib') # path where the silme/lib exists
from silme.core import Entity
entity = Entity('id, 'value')
if __name__ == "__main__":
You can also checkout from HG ./silme/scripts to see examples. (launch from the directory above ./scripts, like: ./scripts/test.py)
- Go to python.org and download latest Python 2.6 msi package and install it.
- Download TortoiseHG and install it.
- Create a directory and right-click->tortisehg->clone directory and give it a path to silme repository.
- Open command line (cmd.exe) and type "set PATH=C:\Python26;%PATH%" to configure the path
- Navigate to directory where silme has been cloned to and try "python .\scripts\test.py"
You should be good to go from now on.
Next, let's take a closer look at the basic particles in the system - entities.
