This is a quick guide to getting Parley running on a machine using the Catalyst testing/development server.
NOTE v0.51 has missing dependencies in Makefile.PL. Save yourself some pain and fetch v0.52 or later.
mkdir -p ~/development
tar -zxvf Parley-0.52.tar.gz
# install missing dependencies
# 'sudo make' may work here
# you may need to tweak pg_hba.conf
## local all parley trust
## host all parley 127.0.0.1/32 trust
sudo -u postgres createuser -A -d parley
createdb -U parley -E UTF8 parley
psql -U parley -d parley -f db/parley.psql
If you're running Parley out of the box it should Just Work.
One problem can sometimes be with the database connection.
If you find you can't connect, make sure you've correctly configured
pg_hba.conf and that the
parley.yml appears sane for your setup.
There are others, but these are the key packages I'd recommend installing with "sudo aptitude install ..."
