Setting Up a Development Environment

Setting Up a Development Environment

This page describes how to setup a working Python development environment that can be used in developing Neutron on Ubuntu, Fedora or Mac OS X. These instructions assume you’re already familiar with Git and Gerrit, which is a code repository mirror and code review toolset , however if you aren’t please see this Git tutorial for an introduction to using Git and this guide for a tutorial on using Gerrit and Git for code contribution to OpenStack projects.

Following these instructions will allow you to run the Neutron unit tests. If you want to be able to run Neutron in a full OpenStack environment, you can use the excellent DevStack project to do so. There is a wiki page that describes setting up Neutron using DevStack.

Getting the code

Grab the code:

git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack/neutron.git
cd neutron
