This is just a small guide on how to setup PySnip on Linux. If you want to set it up on Windows, there is already a featured server here.
This guide assumes basic experience with a terminal and your distro’s package manager.
Since Ubuntu seems to be the most common distro, I’ll provide instructions that use apt-get. If you use a different distro/manager, please refer to your package-manager documentation for the appropriate commands.
First, install the dependencies:
sudo apt-get install python2.7 python2.7-dev python-setuptools python-twisted mercurial gcc g++ zope.interface sudo python -m easy_install cython sudo python -m easy_install pil sudo python -m easy_install jinja2
Next, you can install screen if you’d like:
sudo apt-get install screen
Another optional feature is pygeoip, which will allow you to use the /from command, showing you where individual players are located geographically.
Next you need to either clone the repository using Mercurial.
hg clone https://code.google.com/p/pysnip/ cd pysnip sh build.sh
If you don’t want to clone the repo, you can download an up-to-date zipped archive of the source here. Just download and extract as normal.
Next you need to edit the configuration:
cd feature_server nano config.txt
Make sure you change your admin password from the default one.
Finally, run the server:
Or if you are using screen:
screen sh run_server.sh
