Flask-Diamond requires some software to be installed in order to function. Once you have installed these requirements, you can follow the Quick Start to start your first project. The following packages should be installed globally, as the superuser, for all users on the system to access.
The following sections describe the process for installing these requirements on various systems. In each of the following examples, it is assumed you will be using a root account (or some other privileged account).
If you do not have root access, then refer to the section Unprivileged Installation for information about creating a virtualenv in your user account.
Flask-Diamond installs cleanly on Debian and Ubuntu systems released after 2011.
apt-get install python python-dev python-pip build-essential apt-get install sqlite-dev pip install --upgrade pip pip install --upgrade virtualenv pip install virtualenvwrapper
Flask-Diamond can be installed on RedHat, but ensure your package manager is installing Python 2.7; as of August 2015, RHEL provides an older version.
yum install python python-devel python-pip yum install sqlite-devel pip install --upgrade pip pip install --upgrade virtualenv pip install virtualenvwrapper
Flask-Diamond installs pretty easily on OSX with Homebrew. Make sure you are using the admin user for this process, just like a normal Homebrew operation.
brew install python --universal --framework brew install pyenv-virtualenv brew install pyenv-virtualenvwrapper brew install sqlite pip install --upgrade pip
Note: Have you done this install successfully? Please share your process as a comment on Issue 8.
Here are a few resources to get you started:
Sometimes, you do not have root access to the system. It is still possible to use Flask-Diamond, but the installation process is slightly different because it does not use virtualenvwrapper. Instead, you will create your virtualenv directly and use the activate macro to work on it.
curl -O https://raw.github.com/pypa/virtualenv/master/virtualenv.py python virtualenv.py my-diamond-app source my-diamond-app/bin/activate pip install Flask-Diamond
