Tutorial 7: Installing Pinax – Preparations (Part 0)

Tutorial used: http://pinax.readthedocs.org/en/latest/gettingstarted.html#installation

Purpose of Tutorial: Getting started with Installing Pinax

What I learnt:

1. Concept 1: Some other installations needed first
Step Install pip (python package index): pip 1.2.1 <supports python later than 2.5> installation instructions (use ‘alternative installation procedures’)
– to install ‘pip’, ‘setuptools’ is required: download and install instructions
    – i used setuptools ‘setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg‘ for python 2.7.x
– pip allows you to install and manage python packages
– this allows you to install virtualenv

Step 2: Install virtualenv: installation instructions (use pip to install)
– virtualenv is a tool to create isolated python environment
– i installed ‘virtualenv 1.8.4′

Step 3: Install PIL: download, installation see screenshot, documentation
– i installed ‘pil 1.1.7‘:

N.B. looking at the details of the installations, we are installing pip, virtualenv and PIL into our python 2.7 library: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages
