Wpull requires the following:
- Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 (or newer)
- Lunatic Python (bastibe version) (optional for Lua support)
- PhantomJS (optional)
For installing Wpull, it is recommended to use pip installer.
Please obtain the latest Python release from http://python.org/download/ or your package manager. It is recommended to use Python 3.2 or greater.
It is recommended that lxml is obtained through an installer or pre-built package. Windows packages are provided on https://pypi.python.org/pypi/lxml. Debian/Ubuntu users should install python3-lxml. For more information, see http://lxml.de/installation.html.
If pip is not installed on your system yet, please follow the instructions at http://www.pip-installer.org/en/latest/installing.html to install pip. Note for Linux users, ensure you are executing the appropriate Python version when installing pip.
To enable optional Lua scripting support, Lunatic Python (bastibe version) can be installed using pip:
pip3 install git+https://github.com/bastibe/lunatic-python.git#egg=lunatic-python
At time of writing, Lunatic Python uses Lua 5.2. If you desire a different version of Lua, please see below.
At time of writing, Lunatic Python does not support Python 3.2.
The version of Lunatic Python in the Python Package Index (PyPI) is out of date.
Specify Lua version¶
Download lunatic-python from https://github.com/bastibe/lunatic-python using the “Download ZIP” link or git clone.
Inside setup.py, edit LUAVERSION to reflect the current Lua library installed. On Debian/Ubuntu it is known by libluaX.Y-dev.
Run pip to install Lunatic Python with LOCATION replaced with the location of the Lunatic Python source code.:
pip install LOCATION
Once you have installed Python, lxml, and pip, install Wpull with dependencies automatically from PyPI:
pip3 install wpull
Python 2 users, please see note in the next subsection.
Adding the --upgrade option will upgrade Wpull to the latest release. Use --no-dependencies to only upgrade Wpull.
Adding the --user option will install Wpull into your home directory.
Please ensure you have the latest lib3to2 from Bitbucket before installing Wpull:
pip install hg+https://bitbucket.org/amentajo/lib3to2#egg=3to2
The version in PyPI is out of date.
Install the dependencies:
pip3 install -r https://raw2.github.com/chfoo/wpull/master/requirements.txt
Install Wpull from GitHub:
pip3 install git+https://github.com/chfoo/wpull.git#egg=wpull
Using git+https://github.com/chfoo/wpull.git@develop#egg=wpull as the path will install Wpull’s develop branch.
Install additional dependencies before installing Wpull:
pip install -r https://raw2.github.com/chfoo/wpull/master/requirements-py2.txt
Invoking setup.py (with or without commands/options) will trigger the 3to2 process automatically. The Python 2 compatible source code will be placed in py2src_noedit/. Invoking a Python 2 interpreter on the original Python 3 source code will result Wpull failing to run due to syntax errors.
