Frequently Asked Questions

» How do I use the Toolkit?

Windows

To start the Toolkit, use the start menu item called Trigger Toolkit

Mac

To start the Toolkit, just double click TriggerToolkit.app in Finder, or start it from Launchpad or Spotlight.

Python Source

To get started you'll need to install Python 2.6 or greater. If you don't already have python, you can find links to a distribution here.

Once you've got this, run python trigger_toolkit.py from the commandline.

This should start the Toolkit server and open your browser at the interface - you can then login or signup and start working on apps.

» What about command-line tools?

Our command line tools bundled as part of the Toolkit.

If you want to interact with Forge from the command line, you can use the forge command-line client which is located in your Toolkit installation, typically:

Windows

C:\> "C:\Users\<Your Username>\AppData\Local\Trigger Toolkit\forge.exe" create

Mac

(Please note: You'll need to run the Toolkit once to be have the commandline tools located in this folder)

$ $HOME/Library/Trigger\ Toolkit/forge create

Python Source

$ ~/TriggerToolkit/forge create

Or if you can't use the Toolkit at all, sign up here and you can download the command-line tools manually.

» Where is stuff installed to?

Windows (Vista/7)

C:\Users\<Your user>\AppData\Local\Trigger Toolkit

Windows (2000/XP)

C:\Documents and Settings\<Your user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Trigger Toolkit

Mac

TriggerToolkit.app will be installed wherever you leave it. The most natural place for this is the Applications folder for your machine

On first run, the Toolkit will copy files into ~/Library/Trigger Toolkit so that it can reliably update.

Python Source

The Trigger Toolkit will be installed to wherever you extract it to.

» Usage on Linux and other operating systems

Currently we don't have a package for Linux that includes a binary, but if you have Python installed on your system you should be able to get going with the Toolkit easily by using the source code distribution
