Setting up AGX and TestsΒΆ

Here we describe the procedure to get AGX and the tests up and running from scratch.

You may use virtualenv to keep the Python setup separated from your system Python. Virtualenv is supplied with many package managers:

apt-get install python-virtualenv

1) Get the development bundle of AGX:

$ git clone git://
$ cd

2) Create a virtualenv for your AGX setup:$ virtualenv .

3) Bootstrap and run the buildout:$ ./bin/python -c dev.cfg$ ./bin/buildout -c dev.cfg

3a) Run the tests:$ ./

3b) You can also run tests for a specific package or generator:$ bin/test agx.generator.pyegg
