openSUSE packages

We use the openSUSE Build Service to provide packages for openSUSE 12.2 until openSUSE 13.1. Add the repository first, e.g.:

$ sudo zypper ar concert-repo

and update and install the packages. Note, that you have to install IPython on your own, if you intend to use the concert binary for execution:

$ sudo zypper update
$ sudo zypper in python-concert

Install from PyPI

It is recommended to use pip for installing Concert. The fastest way to install it is from PyPI:

$ sudo pip install concert

This will install the latest stable version. If you prefer an earlier stable version, you can fetch a tarball and install with:

$ sudo pip install concert-x.y.z.tar.gz

If you haven’t have pip available, you can extract the tarball and install using the supplied script:

$ tar xfz concert-x.y.z.tar.gz
$ cd concert-x.y.z
$ sudo python install

More information on installing Concert using the script, can be found in the official Python documentation.

To install the Concert from the current source, follow the instructions given in the developer documentation.

Installing into a virtualenv

It is sometimes a good idea to install third-party Python modules independent of the system installation. This can be achieved easily using pip and virtualenv. When virtualenv is installed, create a new empty environment and activate that with

$ virtualenv my_new_environment
$ . my_new_environment/bin/activate

Now, you can install Concert’s requirements and Concert itself

$ pip install -e path_to_concert/

As long as my_new_environment is active, you can use Concert.
