Lino Algus

Welcome to the Lino Algus project homepage.

A repository that you can use as template for writing your own Lino application.

Basic use is as follows:

  • We asume that you have installed a Lino developer environment.

  • Find a short one-word name for your application, for example “Lino Example”.

  • Download and unzip a snapshot of this repository to a directory named ~/lino/lino_local/example.

  • In your project directory, rename all files and directories containing “algus” in their name to “example”:

    $ mv lino_algus lino_example
    $ mv lino_algus/lib/algus lino_example/lib/example
    $ ...
  • In all your files (.py, .rst, .html), replace all occurences of “algus” by “example” (and “Algus” by “Example”).

  • To start the demo project, run the following commands:

    $ cd lino_example/projects/example1
    $ python prep
    $ python runserver
  • Edit the file lino_example/ (description, author, version, copyright etc).

  • Publish your repository on GitLab.

Note: “algus” is the Estonian word for “start”. We did not name this template “Lino Start” because the word “start” is more likely to occur in variable names or text which is not related to the projet name.
