Installing Quixote

Quixote requires Python 2.4 or later.

If you have a previously installed quixote, we strongly recommend that you remove it before installing a new one. First, find out where your old Quixote installation is:

python -c "import os, quixote; print os.path.dirname(quixote.__file__)"

and then remove away the reported directory. (If the import fails, then you don't have an existing Quixote installation.)

Now install the new version by running (in the distribution directory),

python setup.py install

and you're done.

Quick start

In a terminal window, run server/simple_server.py. In a browser, open http://localhost:8080
