Learn What’s new in DreamPie 1.2.1!
There are two ways to get DreamPie: by cloning the git repository and by downloading a release. The recommended way is to clone the git repository – Most of the time, the repo is both more stable and has more features than the released version. Using the repo will also let you instantly participate in DreamPie development, by reporting bugs and helping them get fixed, and by hacking the code and sending patches.
If you don’t want to learn about git, you can get the released version.
Using the git repo
Clone the repo by running:
git clone https://github.com/noamraph/dreampie.git
To run DreamPie, you will need Python 2.6 or 2.7, and PyGTK with pygtksourceview.
- On Windows, get the PyGTK all-in-one installer from here and be sure to select pygtksourceview.
- On Mac, get PyGTK from here
- On Linux, it’s probably already installed.
You can now run dreampie.py or dreampie from the repo directory. If you want to create a shortcut for running DreamPie:
- On Windows, run create-shortcuts.py to create start menu shortcuts.
- On Mac and Linux, run
ln -s dreampie /usr/local/bin
Getting the released version
On Windows, just download and run dreampie-1.2.1-setup.exe
On Mac, get PyGTK from here, and follow the next bullet:
On Linux and Mac, run:
sudo pip install dreampie
If it didn’t work, install pip by running
sudo apt-get install python-pipon Ubuntu, or by running
sudo easy_install pipon Mac and other platforms.
