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.
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 twistd -noy bin/accomplishments-daemon
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
