You can check out QuakePy from our Subversion repository at https://quake.ethz.ch/svn/quakepy. You need a Subversion client on your machine to do so.
The checkout can be performed using the following commands:
svn checkout https://quake.ethz.ch/svn/quakepy/trunk quakepy
This will create a directory quakepy in your current directory which contains the QuakePy code.
QuakePy needs a couple of other packages to be installed. Please check out ListOfPackages to see which packages are required.
After downloading QuakePy, you need to add the QuakePy directory to your PYTHONPATH, using
for bash, or
setenv PYTHONPATH /my/quakepy/installation:$PYTHONPATH
No further steps are required to install QuakePy.
QuakePy provides a test suite in order to ensure proper operation of the package. The tests can be run using the following commands:
cd /my/quakepy/installation make check make testclean
The tests will create temporary data on your drive. Please be sure to provide sufficient disk space. The command make testclean removes the files created by the test suite.
