Development using Eclipse and Pydev
Prerequisites: a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) has to be installed.
To use Eclipse you'll need two folders. One where you install Eclipse, the other one will be the workspace. E.g., ~/devel/eclipse_installs/ and ~/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps
Download an Eclipse package from Eclipse.org. Unzip the file into ~/devel/eclipse_installs/ and run the eclipse binary in ~/devel/eclipse_installs/eclipse when asked for a workspace, enter ~/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps
Installing Pydev and Pylint
Get pydev from the pydev download site.
Follow the installation tutorial
On my Ubuntu, the python interpreter can be found at /usr/bin/python
sudo apt-get install pylint Go to: window > preferences > pydev > pylint tick use pylint and enter /usr/bin/pylint as the pylint path.
Follow the download instructions to install the Subclipse plugin.
Open the subversion perspective and add a repository. https://gramps.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gramps/trunk for working on the trunk code. Select Checkout project using new project wizard. Select pydev project wizard.
