Installation and configuration

On the web/data server host

* Install cubicweb and the cubicweb-apycot packages (more info in the
`cubicweb book`_). Notice that the apycot cube may be integrated with
`tracker`_ based instances.

* Set pyro-server=yes in your instance's configuration file

* Create environment and test configuration entities through the web
ui of your instance(s) to describe what to test. (See `More

* Modify password for the narval user for better security

On the bot host

* Install the narval-apycot package.

* edit /etc/narval.ini, or ~/etc/narval.ini when running
code from hg, to adjust the bot configuration. You can also generate
a stub configuration file using `narval rcfile > /etc/narval.ini`

* If using different user/password for the apycot bot in cubicweb
instances than default ones (higly recommended), indicate connection
information for each instance in a /etc/narval-cw-sources.ini file.
for instance ::



where each section is the pyro name of an instance. You should
restrict read perms to this file aggressively.

* for those running from source, `narval/bin/narval` should be

.. _`cubicweb book`:
.. _`tracker`:

Once both sides are running, check both are properly registered in the
pyro name server by running

pyro-nsc listall

You should see your instance as 'cubicweb:...' and the bot as 'narval:...'.
or in /etc (narval from debian package). This
allows arbitrary password (it's recommended to change the default one), and
also have the nice effect that when your bot will be (re)started, it will connect
to each instance listed in this file to search for pending plans.
