Developing trumpet without vagrant


I like to use virtualenvwrapper

sudo apt-get install virtualenvwrapper
mkvirtualenv trumpet
workon trumpet
pip install requests

Development packages are needed to install some of the python packages:

.. code:: sh
sudo apt-get install libpq-dev python-dev libjpeg62-dev libpng12-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms1-dev python-requests libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libssl-dev

Next we have to download build and prepare the static resources.

Setup Compass

Make sure rubygems is on your system:

sudo apt-get install rubygems

Setup local gem environment:

mkdir -p ~/local/gems

Add to ~/.bashrc:

#setup gems if directory exists
if [ -d ~/local/gems ]; then
    export GEM_HOME=~/local/gems
    export PATH=~/local/gems/bin:$PATH

Source the bashrc or spawn another shell and install the gems:

gem install sass -v 3.2.18
gem install compass -v 0.12.2
gem install susy -v 1.0.9
gem install sassy-buttons -v 0.2.6
gem install bootstrap-sass -v
gem install compass-ui -v 0.0.5

Setup NodeJS

FIXME: Need better instructions for nodeenv.

Get nodejs for virtualenv

workon trumpet
pip install nodeenv
nodeenv -p

The last statement will download the latest stable version of nodejs and build it in the python virtual environment so that both virtual environments can be integrated together.

Install global nodejs packages

Then, install these packages globally:

npm install -g coffee-script
npm install -g grunt-cli
npm install -g bower

Get packages for grunt

In the project directory, get the packages for grunt:

npm install

Get bower components

Then install the bower packages:

bower install

Bower packages can contain whole git repositories, which can be excessive when deploying a python package of static resources. I have written a script that helps to deploy only what is needed from the bower components. The script is not very smart, but handles any bower package that points to a single file, or list of files very well.

run grunt


make package

python (develop/install/sdist)
