You can download and install MOAI from the python package index:
or grab it directly from Subversion:
Checkout MOAI and go into the checkout directory:
> svn co http://svn.infrae.com/MOAI/trunk moai > cd moai
You can also download a tarball from the python package index, and use that.
Run the bootstrap script with a python interpreter:
> python bootstrap.py
Setup the project, and pull in dependencies by running the buildout script:
Note that the buildout will take care of pulling in all the python dependencies, however some of those need to compile code, bacause of this the following packages need to be installed on your system:
a working c compiler python devel package sqlite3 devel package libxml2 devel package libxslt devel package
After the buildout has finished, some scripts were created in the bin folder. First we’ll run the unittests, to make sure everything is working
Also, a script ‘update_database’ has been created. This script is used to load the content into the MOAI database.
> ./bin/update_database --help Usage: update_database [options] Options: --version show program's version number and exit -h, --help show this help message and exit -v, --verbose print logging at info level -d, --debug print traceback and quit on error -q, --quiet be quiet, do not output and info --config=CONFIG do not use default config profile (example) --date=FROM_DATE Only update databse from a specific date
Another script ‘start_development_server’ is also available to start the OAI development Server.
To get a server running with the default example profile, issue the following commands:
> ./bin/update_database > ./bin/start_development_server
