This page describes setting up a sandbox for running ccPublisher 2 and P6 from Subversion.
Setting Up a ccPublisher Sandbox
A sandbox is a checkout of the ccPublisher sourcecode from Subversion. Setting up a sandbox lets you work with the most recent features, as well as work on the source code yourself. For background on how the sourcecode is organized see ccPublisher 2 Architecture.
As of 8 February 2006, a C compiler is no longer required to build ccPublisher 2 or P6.
We try to maintain pure Python within our Subversion repository (either with a vendor tag or svn:external). However, there are a handful of dependencies which are better built on individual systems or installed from binaries.
- Python 2.4
- pywin32 Python Extensions for the Win32 API (Windows only)
- wxPython Unicode build required to properly support non-ANSI characters in any input field. So really, just use the Unicode build.
Before you begin building you will need to check out the source code. ccPublisher uses Subversion for source control. To check out the most recent copy of the code, execute the following command:
$ svn co svn://svn.berlios.de/cctools/publisher/trunk ccpublisher
This will check out the entire required source tree, including dependencies from the Zope 3 project, into the
Once you have the dependencies listed above installed, run
main.py to start ccPublisher:
$ python ccp.py
Depending on your platform, your development model may vary slightly. See the appropriate platform-specific page:
- Developing ccPublisher on Linux
- Developing ccPublisher on Windows
- Developing ccPublisher on Mac OS X
- Developing ccPublisher with Wing
See CcPublisher Release Procedure for details on creating packages of ccPublisher (or other P6 applications).
