APyaX requires Python 2.5 to be installed on the server. Python can be downloaded from
You can also download binary distributions for a variety of platforms from ActiveState:
Operating system providers also usually offer the option of installing Python, for example by using apt-get on Debian based linux systems.
The "python" command should be installed on your path. To check, try to execute the command "python -V" to print the python version number.
This is as simple as uncompressing and untarring the velocikit package after downloading it from SourceForge:
The package can be unpacked using the following commands
tar xvf VelociKit-0.4.tar
This should create a sub-directory VelociKit-0.4. Run the distutils setup script to install VelociKit, including the APyaX dispatcher and generator
python setup.py install
The examples included with the APyaX package demonstrate the basic capabilities of APyaX. To run an example, open a shell and go to either of the following directories...
This script will first invoke another script, build.sh, to run the generator tool and convert .phtml files (source XHTML files which reference python scripts) into ready-to-deploy .html files. Then run.sh will start a basic web server to serve the files and run python scripts.
Once the basic web server is running, point your browser at http://localhost:8080 to load a root page with links to various VelociKit examples including:
calls python on the server to retrieve a localized greeting
a simple example which queries the python server environment and displays details in the web browser
A number of different examples demonstrate a range of APyaX features
