How to set up a development environment.

Do not forget to read the section about installation in the CubicWeb Book: http://www.cubicweb.org/doc/en/admin/setup.html

Install mercurial and its forest extension

First, install mercurial and set up the forest extension by getting a copy from http://hg.akoha.org/hgforest/ and adding the following lines to your ~/.hgrc:

[extensions]
hgext.forest=
# or, if forest.py is not in the hgext dir:
# forest=/path/to/forest.py

This is described with more details at http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/ForestExtension

Download the source

Clone the forest:

hg fclone http://www.logilab.org/hg/forests/cubicweb

Enjoy.

Note: if fclone does not work, try this script cubicweb_fclone.sh
