Installing Lino Shop

  • Install Lino (the framework) as documented in Installing a Lino developer environment

  • Go to your repositories directory and download also a copy of the Lino Shop repository:

    cd ~/repositories
    git clone https://github.com/lino-framework/shop
    
  • Use pip to install this as editable package:

    pip install -e shop
    
  • Create a local Lino project as explained in Playing with your first Lino site.

  • Change your project’s settings.py file so that it looks as follows:

    from lino_shop.projects.shop.settings import *
    
    class Site(Site):
        title = "Our Lino Shop site"
    
    SITE = Site(globals())
    DEBUG = True
    

    The first line is Python way to specify encoding (PEP 263). That’s needed because of the non-ascii ì of “Lino Noi” in line 3.
