Installing and configuring EMEN2
You will first need to install the various EMEN2 dependencies. They are all straight-forward to install, and can generally be installed using Python's easy_install system.
EMEN2 can be installed using either Python easy_install:
sudo easy_install emen2
Or by downloading the source, unpacking, and using Python distutils:
python ./setup.py build sudo python ./setup.py install
Here is a "quick start" guide to install EMEN2, initialize an EMEN2 DB, and start the web server. The "-h" argument in the scripts below are references to a directory to keep the EMEN2 DB; the directory will be created if it does not exist.
python -m emen2.db.clone -h $HOME/test_db -- --defs python -m emen2.web.server -h $HOME/test_db
You can also quickly access the native Python API, by invoking the emen2.db.admin module and interactive mode.
python -i -m emen2.db.admin
Note: If you are using Python 2.7, you can use "-m emen2.web" and "-m emen2.db"
