Dependencies Installation

This script can run on multiple Operating Systems. You need Node.js in your system’s path for this script to work (You need this on each and every Operating System, even on WINDOWS :/). Download the Node.Js from Node.js official website. Doesn’t matter which operating system you’re on, this is a must. Follow the instructions mentioned below, according to your OS.

Linux/Debian :

Since most (if not all) Linux/Debian OS come with python pre-installed, you don’t have to install python manually. Make sure you’re using python >= 2.7.x though.

We need pip to install any external dependency(ies). So, open any terminal and type in pip list and if it shows some data, then it is fine. But, if it shows error, like pip not found or something along this line, then you need to install pip. Just type this command in terminal :

sudo apt-get install python-pip

If you’re on Fedora, CentOS/RHEL, openSUSE, Arch Linux, then you simply need to follow THIS TUTORIAL to install pip.

If this still doesn’t work, then you’ll manually need to install pip. Doing so is an easy one time job and you can follow THIS TUTORIAL to do so.

Windows :

If you’re on windows, then it is recommended to download the Windows Binary for this script. If you use the windows binary, you don’t need to install anything, except Node.js. But, if for some weird reason you want to use Python script instead, then follow these steps :

  • Install Python > 2.7.6. Download the desired installer from here.
  • Add it in the system path (if not already added).
  • If you’re using python >2.7.9, you don’t need to install PIP. However, if you don’t have pip installed and added in windows path, then do so by following this little tutorial.
  • Download this `text file and put it in some directory/folder.
  • Open Command Prompt and browse to the directory where you downloaded your requiremenets.txt file and run this command :
pip install -r requirements.txt
  • It should install the required external libraries.

Now, install Node.Js as well and make sure it’s in your path.

Well, if everything came up good without any error(s), then you’re good to go!

Mac OS X :

Mac OS X users will have to fetch their version of Python and Pip.

2. Pip installation guide :

After downloading and installing these, you need to add PIP & Python in your path. Follow THIS LITTLE GUIDE to install both, Python & pip successfully.
