In Fedora simply install the package:

dnf install did

That’s it! :-)


Set up the did repository and install the tool using dnf:

dnf copr enable psss/did
dnf install did

This will bring dependencies for all core plugins as well.


Basic dependencies for buiding/installing pip packages on Fedora:

sudo yum install gcc krb5-devel
sudo yum install python-devel python-pip python-virtualenv

Dependencies for Debian-based systems:

sudo apt install gcc libkrb5-dev
sudo apt install python-dev python-pip python-virtualenv

Upgrade to the latest pip/setup/virtualenv installer code:

sudo pip install --upgrade pip setuptools virtualenv

Install into a python virtual environment (OPTIONAL):

virtualenv ~/did
source ~/did/bin/activate

Install did (sudo required if not in a virtualenv):

pip install did

See the pypi package index for detailed package information.


Please note: This is a first cut at doing a container version as a result; known issues:

  • Kerberos auth may not be working correctly
  • Container runs as privileged to access the conf file
  • Output directory may not be quite right

This does not actually run the docker image as it makes more sense to run it directly. Use:

docker run --privileged --rm -it -v $(HOME)/.did:/did.conf $(USERNAME)/did

If you want to add it to your .bashrc use this:

alias did="docker run --privileged --rm -it -v $(HOME)/.did:/did.conf $(USERNAME)/did"
