Known fabsetup-addons

Please contribute: Create your own fabsetup-addon and make a pull request which adds your fabsetup-addon to the known_pip_addons in fabsetup/ and to this


As a pypi package with command pip2 (recommended way):

pip2 install fabsetup

# install addon, eg. fabsetup-theno-termdown
pip2 install fabsetup-theno-termdown

Raspberry Pi

On a fresh raspbian (Debian) you will need at least the following packages before installing fabsetup with pip:

sudo apt install -y git python python-pip libffi-dev libssl-dev tree curl && sudo pip install fabsetup

The whole installation will take about 15 minutes on a Raspi 3 with raspbian stretch, so you can make yourself a tea. Note: You do not need to type pip2 as pip defaults to the python2-variant of pip. If you run $ pip install fabsetup as normal usr (without sudo) pip will install with --user setting by default so fabsetup is located under ~/.local/bin. In this case you need to add ~/.local/bin to $PATH which is located in /etc/profile.


pip2 install --upgrade fabsetup

# update addon (also updates fabsetup)
pip2 install --upgrade fabsetup-theno-termdown

Install without superuser privileges:

pip2 install --user fabsetup

When running with --user pip installs the command fabsetup at ~/.local/bin. Assure that ~/.local/bin is set in your $PATH environment variable.


pip2 uninstall --yes fabsetup
pip2 uninstall --yes fabsetup-addon-theno

You also can clone the github repository instead of using pip2 install:

# install requirements
sudo apt-get install  git  fabric
pip2 install --user utlz

git clone  ~/.fabsetup

# from ~/.fabsetup dir use `fab` instead of `fabsetup`
cd ~/.fabsetup
fab -l


Devel commands:

# save changes
git commit -am 'I describe my changes'

# upload to github
git push origin master

# update version number in fabsetup/

# create and publish package at pypi
fab -f  pypi

# clean up
fab -f  clean
