edrn.sync 1.0.1

EDRN Sync Services

Latest Version: 1.0.3

EDRN Sync provides an API for slurping up DMCC RDF representing EDRN users and groups and registering those users into our EDRN IC LDAP server.

Installation

This document tells you how to install edrn.sync.

Quick Instructions

Run:

pip install edrn.sync

What? You don't have pip? You're seriously still using easy_install? Sigh:

easy_install edrn.sync

That's it. (Of course, you might want to put it into a buildout or a virtualenv).

Full Instructions

edrn.sync requires the Python programming language. We recommend version 2.4 or later. As of this writing, 2.7 is the latest stable version. If Python is not yet installed on your system, you can find binary and and source distributions from the Python website.

To test if a correct version of Python is available on your system, run:

python -V

You should see output similar to:

Python 2.7

indicating the version of Python installed. edrn.sync also requires Agile OODT. OODT is Object Oriented Data Technology, a framework for metadata and data grids. Agile OODT is a Python version of OODT that supports higher performance and easier integration than the Java version.

By far the easiest, recommended, and encouraged way to install edrn.sync is to use pip. If your Python installation has pip available to it (and all virtualenvs do), then this one command is all you need to run in order to download, build, install, and generate command-line tools all in one go:

pip install edrn.sync

That will also download and install all dependencies, including Agile OODT.

Executables

The commands dmccsync and dmccgroupsync will be generated and placed with your standard installation directory for Python commands. Usually, this is the same location as the python executable itself.
