elasticluster is a Python program; Python version 2.6 is required to run it.
If you instead want to test the development version, go to the Installing from github section.
It’s quite easy to install elasticluster using pip; the command below is all you need to install elasticluster on your system:
pip install elasticluster
If you want to run elasticluster from source you have to install Ansible first:
pip install ansible python setup.py install
You need the git command in order to be able to clone it, and we suggest you to use python virtualenv in order to create a controlled environment in which you can install elasticluster as normal user.
Assuming you already have virtualenv installed on your machine, you first need to create a virtualenv and install ansible, which is needed by elasticluster:
virtualenv elasticluster . elasticluster/bin/activate pip install ansible
Then you have to download the software. We suggest you to download it within the created virtualenv:
cd elasticluster git clone git://github.com/gc3-uzh-ch/elasticluster.git src cd src git submodule init git submodule update python setup.py install
Now the elasticluster should be available in your current environment.
