Getting Your Development Environment Set Up
This page explains how to install the development branches from the different parts of Ubuntu Accomplishments so you can contribute.
You will need to ensure you have some dependencies set up:
sudo apt-get install quickly gir1.2-gwibber-gtk-0.3 python-gpgme ubuntuone-couch
Step 1: Get The Code
Most people create a sub-directory (e.g. ~/source) to keep the code in. Move to whatever directory you want to store the code in and get the branches:
bzr branch lp:ubuntu-accomplishments-daemon bzr branch lp:ubuntu-accomplishments-viewer bzr branch lp:ubuntu-community-accomplishments bzr branch lp:ubuntu-desktop-accomplishments
Step 2: Running The Daemon
Before you run the viewer you need to run the daemon.
Open a terminal and run:
cd ubuntu-accomplishments-daemon bin/accomplishments-daemon -f
This command runs the daemon in the foreground so you can see all the output and kill it with Ctrl-C if needed. This is handy if you are hacking on the daemon and want to see the output of your work.
NOTE: Be sure that you don't have another daemon running before you run the above command. You can kill other daemons with killall -9 twistd. On a default install the daemon is started by default on login, so you will want to disable this in the Preferences in the viewer.
Step 3: Running The Viewer
With the daemon running (see the previous step), you can now run the daemon.
If you have the daemon already installed as a package, you want to ensure you have the viewer use the daemon from the branch. To do this you can set the PYTHONPATH. As an example:
Now run the viewer:
cd ubuntu-accomplishments-viewer quickly run
