The script used to develop and test this component uses the py_mini_sh itself. To start development of this component, follow these steps:

  1. Clone this repo onto a machine from

This buildall script will perform the following steps:

  2. Installs the py_mini_sh package into this virtualenv in “develop” mode.
  3. Builds the documentation into the SHIP folder.
