Today someone asked me how to run Acire and Python Snippets from source and contribute more snippets. I just wanted to pop up the instructions quickly here so I can point folks at them. These should work on Lucid and Karmic for sure, and very possibly older versions.
First grab the tools you need to run Acire:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install quickly bzr python-mechanize python-gtksourceview2
First grab the python-snippets:
bzr branch lp:python-snippets
Now grab Acire:
bzr branch lp:acire
Now set an environmental variable to point to your snippets:
Now go to the directory where you checked out Acire and run it:
Job done! You can now contribute snippets by reading this guide. I look forward to seeing your snippets, folks!
