How do I get started?

  1. Download the code.
  2. Install Django (read the installation guide).
  3. Check out the rest of the documentation, and ask questions if you run into trouble.

What are Eyes’s prerequisites?

Eyes requires * Python 2.4 or later. * Django 1.2 or later

For a development environment – if you just want to experiment with Django – you don’t need to have a separate Web server installed; Django comes with its own lightweight development server. For a production environment, we recommend Apache 2 and mod_python, although Django follows the WSGI spec, which means it can run on a variety of server platforms.

Using Django requires a database. PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLite 3, and Oracle are supported.
