devassistant 0.8.0

DevAssistant helps you kickstart your projects with ease.

Latest Version: 0.9.0a2

DevAssistant - making life easier for developers

DevAssistant project is a helper for all developers using (not-only) Fedora. It helps with creating and setting up basic projects in various languages, installing dependencies, setting up environment etc.

DevAssistant is based on idea of per-{language/framework/...} "assistants" with hierarchical structure. E.g. you can create projects like this:

$ da crt python django -n ~/myproject # sets up Django project named "myproject" inside your home dir
$ da crt python flask -n ~/flaskproject # sets up Flask project named "flaskproject" inside your home dir
$ da crt ruby rails -n ~/alsomyproject # sets up RoR project named "alsomyproject" inside your home dir

DevAssistant also allows you to work with a previously created project, for example import it to Eclipse:

$ da mod eclipse # run in project dir or use -p to specify path

With DevAssistant, you can also prepare environment for developing upstream projects - either using project-specific assistants or using "custom" assistant for arbitrary projects (even those not created by DevAssistant):

$ da prep custom -u scm_url -p directory_to_save_to

Last but not least, DevAssistant allows you to perform arbitrary tasks not related to a specific project:

$ da task <TODO:NOTHING YET>

For full documentation, see

To start developing, do:

git clone
cd devassistant
git submodule init
git submodule update

And install dependencies from requirements-devel.txt:

pip install -r requirements-devel.txt

Apart from git, DevAssistant also assumes that polkit is installed on your machine (provides pkexec binary). If you want to work with GUI, you'll need pygobject3.

Or, assuming that you have DevAssistant version 0.8.0 or higher installed, you just need to do:

da prep devassistant

DevAssistant works on Python 2.6, 2.7 and >= 3.3.
