This page describes the way how to setup the development environment for the development of the core.
For plugin/extension development see Extension plugins
- Python 3.x, async programming with gevent, HTML, Angular, Typescript, LESS
Minimal set of software required to build and run Ajenti:
There are two ways how to setup the core.
- Automatic (Recommended)
Automatic Installation (Backend + Frontend)¶
The following script will perform a complete automatic installation under Debian or Ubuntu, using virtual environment with Python. The virtual environment is then located in /opt/ajenti and the cloned git repository in /opt/ajenti/ajenti. This install script will install a lot of dependencies, this may take several minutes.
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ajenti/ajenti/master/scripts/install-dev.sh | sudo bash -s -
After a successful installation, do the following to activate the dev mode:
- Activate the virtual environment : source /opt/ajenti/bin/activate
- Navigate in the git repository : cd /opt/ajenti/ajenti
- Launch a rundev recipe : make rundev ( quit with Ctrl+ C )
- Call https://localhost:8000 in your browser ( you will get some warnings because of the self-signed certificate, it’s perfectly normal.
Manual installation - Backend¶
Download the source code:
git clone git://github.com/ajenti/ajenti.git
Install the dependencies:
# Debian/Ubuntu sudo apt-get install build-essential python3-pip python3-dev python3-lxml libffi-dev libssl-dev libjpeg-dev libpng-dev uuid-dev python3-dbus # RHEL sudo dnf install gcc python3-devel python3-pip libxslt-devel libxml2-devel libffi-devel openssl-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel libpng-devel dbus-python cd ajenti sudo pip3 install -r ajenti-core/requirements.txt sudo pip3 install ajenti-dev-multitool
Install the build tools
Follow: Build tools
Ensure that resource compilation is set up correctly and works (optional):
Launch Ajenti backend in dev mode:
Navigate to http://localhost:8000/.
Additional debug information will be available in the console output and browser console.
Reloading the page with Ctrl-F5 (
Cache-Control: no-cache) will unconditionally rebuild all resources
Manual installation - Frontend¶
The setup the core frontend is needed to build and run the plugins:
The way how to do it is described here in the plugins-new/README.md See the Readme https://github.com/daniel-schulz/netzint-ajenti/blob/dev/plugins-new/README.md
