System Requirements

gthnk 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).

OSX

gthnk 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

Debian/Ubuntu

NB: there are currently no startup scripts for Linux.

gthnk 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

Redhat

NB: there are currently no startup scripts for Linux.

gthnk 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

Next Steps

Now that you have the system requirements installed, read Installation to put gthnk on your computer.
