The Mine! Project

open source project for online data and relationships logistics


Pymine is the first “proper” Mine! implementation, and is also the first platform to showcase the Mine! technology; it’s hosted on the Google Code website and accessible via Subversion, which saves all that messy “zipfiles and tarballs and patches, oh my!” nonsense.
for papers
The primary home for the Pymine software is on its Google Code project page; yes, visually it’s very boring, please don’t blame us for that, this one time.

All the instructions for downloading the actual pymine code are writte up elsewhere; links are provided on the Download page. We currently use the following platforms for pymine development:

  • Mac OS X (mostly Snow Leopard)
  • Ubuntu Linux (anything fairly recent)

…and you can probably guess correctly that this means “pymine runs OK on the above, and on anything else your mileage may vary” – but if you get it working elsewhere then we’d love to hear from you.

Platform Plans

Pymine is (essentially) a Django 1.0 application; this means it will run on prettymuch anything that runs Django (and ideally looks like Unix) – and the reason it’s a Django v1.0 (rather than a v1.1) application is that we want to try porting to Google App Engine real soon now.

See also the notes on the Download page regarding platform-specific development kits and software dependencies.

More news on the platform stuff, later.

Reporting Bugs

There’s a marvellous bugtracker for Pymine at Google Code! Guess what – we use it!


There are a bunch of Mine Development Communities:
