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.


Installing did using pip directly on the system is easy:

pip install did

Use virtual environments if you do not want to affect your system. Install virtualenv wrapper to make the work more comfortable:

sudo yum install python-virtualenvwrapper   # Fedora
sudo apt install virtualenvwrapper          # Ubuntu

Create a new virtual environment, upgrade tools, install did:

mkvirtualenv did
workon did
pip install --upgrade pip setuptools
pip install did

This installs the tool and basic requirements. Some of the plugins have additional dependencies. Use did[plugin] to install extra dependencies, for example:

pip install did[bugzilla]   # Install bugzilla deps
pip install did[docs]       # Get everything for building docs
pip install did[tests]      # And for testing
pip install did[all]        # Install all extra dependencies

Note: For plugins depending on gssapi (jira & rt) there are some extra dependencies:

sudo yum install gcc krb5-devel python-devel    # Fedora
sudo apt install gcc libkrb5-dev python-dev     # Ubuntu

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"
