Running CubicWeb on Windows

2009/09/08

This was not supported (and still isn't officially). But rumors have been circulating about a port of CubicWeb on Windows.

I can confirm that there is some truth in this. A few changesets have been circulating, to be merged in the official repository any time now, enabling one to run CubicWeb on Windows. Support for running CubicWeb as a Windows service is not available yet, but should become available in the next few weeks.

Update: check out the source of the 3.5 branch, and you will be able to create and start instances on Windows. Use cubicweb-ctl start -D for non daemon start.


Using gettext on windows

CubicWeb relies on gnu gettext for its translation management. However, the binary installers easily found for gettext (such as the one in python(x,y)) are for older versions, and compiling it is not that easy (especially in the Python world where people do not necessarily have a C compiler at hand).

We did the job and a binary installer for gnu gettext 0.17 is available on our ftp server.
