Ubuntu packagesΒΆ

New in version 0.10.

Insophia publishes apt-gettable packages which are generally fresher than those in Ubuntu, and more stable too since they’re built continously from Scrapy Mercurial repositories (stable & development) and so they contain the latest bug fixes.

To use the packages, just add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list, and then run aptitude update and aptitude install scrapy-0.12:

deb http://archive.scrapy.org/ubuntu DISTRO main

Replacing DISTRO with the name of your Ubuntu release, which you can get with command:

lsb_release -cs

Supported Ubuntu releases are: karmic, lucid, maverick, natty.

For Ubuntu Maverick (10.10):

deb http://archive.scrapy.org/ubuntu maverick main

For Ubuntu Lucid (10.04):

deb http://archive.scrapy.org/ubuntu lucid main

For Ubuntu Karmic (9.10):

deb http://archive.scrapy.org/ubuntu karmic main


Please note that these packages are updated frequently, and so if you find you can’t download the packages, try updating your apt package lists first, e.g., with apt-get update or aptitude update.

The public GPG key used to sign these packages can be imported into you APT keyring as follows:

curl -s http://archive.scrapy.org/ubuntu/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
