Getting Started

In this guide we will walk you through setting up your Briefcase environment for development and testing. We will assume that you have a working Python install, and an existing project.

Install Briefcase

The first step is to install Briefcase. If you’re using a virtual environment for your project, don’t forget to activate it.

$ mkdir tutorial
$ cd tutorial
$ virtualenv -p $(which python3) env
$ . env/bin/activate
$ pip install briefcase

Next Steps

You now have a working Briefcase environment, so you can start the first tutorial.
