Acquiring the Kete Code

Important Note: This step assumes that you are logged in as the user who will be running your Kete. For demos and development this is likely your normal account, for production this is the "kete" account if you have followed the conventions laid forth in the last step.

Read the Downloads topic. Choose whether you want to run the more stable code in the release branch or the "bleeding edge" code in git master that has the latest features. Then do this:

$ sudo su - kete  # or whatever account will be running Kete
$ cd ~/apps

Then run the git clone command on the Download page to get the code.

If you have an older copy of the source code from Git, run the following once to setup a remote source

$ cd your_app
$ git remote add github git://

and run the following to update the code base whenever required.

(change branch to either master if you're using the latest code, or the branch you're using, such as 1-1-stable)

$ git pull github [branch]
