I’m playing with Turbogears 2 more and more, and as part of this process I wanted to improve and codify my process for getting a new TG2 app up and running.
I also know that the Installation for the Impatient make me, well, impatient. Ughh, 5 commands.
So I wanted to see if I could make this slightly better with pip, and I kind of did:
$ pip install -E tg2env -i http://www.turbogears.org/2.1/downloads/current/index/tg.devtools $ source tg2env/bin/activate $ paster quickstart my_wonderful_app
Two issues I found when trying to install TG2:
- You want tg.devtools, not Turbogears2: tg.devtools includes the tools to make new projects, where as the Turbogears package just includes the code to run a Turbogears app.
- Ultimately leaving out the -i part should work, but I ran into problems that way (had version conflicts with repoze.who), so ended up having to specify the package source with -i. It could be that these are solved by the time you read this.
or, to install the latest beta (at this point, 2.1b2)
$ pip install -E tg2env\ -e 'hg+http://email@example.com#egg=TurboGears2'\ -e 'hg+http://firstname.lastname@example.org#egg=tg.devtools'
Ok, it’s still a lot of commands, but it can be done.
Hope this helps enable great Turbogears apps!
