By using the installer from
install.growsdk.org, you can leverage the autoupdater. If you'd prefer to build from source, see installation alternatives.
For contributors, Grow includes a setup script to help set up development environment for running the tests and executing the command line tools. The setup script installs
virtualenv, and all of the required libraries.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:grow/grow.git # Clones this repo. cd grow ./scripts/setup # Runs setup script.
Once installed, you can:
./scripts/test # Runs tests. ./scripts/grow # Runs `grow` command line program.
# Installs Grow in Python's site-packages directory. sudo pip install grow # Or, install Grow for a single user. pip install --user grow # If you have Grow already, upgrade it. pip install --upgrade [--user] grow # Or, build from source. git clone email@example.com:grow/grow.git cd grow pip install -r requirements.txt python setup.py install
libyaml must be installed on your system before installing PyYAML. On Mac, you can install libyaml using the following steps.
brew install libyaml
python -m easy_install pyyaml
From a fresh system, you may need a few things to build a Grow release from scratch:
sudo apt-get install python python-pip build-essential python-all-dev zip \libc6 libyaml-dev libffi-dev libxml2-dev libxslt-dev libssl-dev zipsudo pip install --upgrade pipsudo pip install --upgrade sixsudo pip install grow
To run Grow's unit tests, run from the project's root directory:
./scripts/test # Runs unit tests.
The Grow SDK is released under the MIT License and it is lovingly maintained by the core team. Our mission is to bring joy to building and launching high-quality web sites.
