What follows are the installation instructions for Agile OODT.
Quick Instructions
As a user with administrative privileges, run either::
pip oodt
easy_install oodt
depending on what's available on your system. You're done!
Full Instructions
Agile OODT requires the Python_ programming language. We recommend version 2.4
or later. As of this writing, 2.7 is the latest stable version. If Python is
not yet installed on your system, you can find binary and and source
distributions from the Python website.
To test if a correct version of Python is available on your system, run::
python -V
You should see output similar to::
Python 2.7
indicating the version of Python installed. You may then proceed to install
Agile OODT.
By far the easiest, recommended, and encouraged way to install Agile OODT is
either with Pip_ or EasyInstall_. If your Python installation has either of
these installers available to it, then one command is all you need to run in
order to download, build, install, and generate command-line tools all in one
go for all users on your system. For Pip users, it's::
pip oodt
And for EasyInstall users, it's::
easy_install oodt
Be sure to run that command as an administrative user. For example, on Mac OS
X and other Unix systems, you might need to run either of::
sudo pip oodt
sudo easy_install oodt
Installing From Source
If neither Pip nor EasyInstall are available, you can still make a proper
installation of Agile OODT by building it from its source code. Just follow
these instructions:
1. Download the Agile OODT source distribution and extract the source
archive. The source distribution is packaged as a gzip'd tar archive.
2. Change the current working directory to the newly extracted directory.
3. As an administrative user, run: ``python install``
