19The quick way\r
20^^^^^^^^^^^^^\r
21\r
8b076818 22You will need Python and pip (2.7.x or 3.x).\r
c264071c 23\r
24.. code:: bash\r
25\r
26 sudo pip install rainbowstream\r
8b076818 27 # Python 3 users: sudo pip3 install rainbowstream\r

O
29The recommended way\r
30^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^\r
b84845b9 31\r
0dc0dd00 32Use `virtualenv`_\r
c264071c 33\r
34.. code:: bash\r
35\r
b84845b9 36 virtualenv venv\r
0dc0dd00
O
37 # Python 3 users : use -p to specify your Python 3 localtion as below\r
38 # virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 venv\r
39 source venv/bin/activate\r
c264071c 40 pip install rainbowstream\r

42Troubleshooting\r
43^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^\r
44\r
49c9d9b4 45If you use Linux, you might need to install some packages if you haven't already. \r
46c9fb81
O
46For debian-based distros, these can be installed with\r
47\r
48.. code:: bash\r
49\r
49c9d9b4 50 sudo apt-get install python-dev libjpeg libjpeg-dev libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev zlib1g-dev\r
46c9fb81
O
51\r
52Besides, Mac OSX Maverick with Xcode 5.1 has a well-known `clang unknown argument`_ problem with\r
80fa0f3a 53the ``Pillow`` package installation - a dependency of this app.\r
49c9d9b4 54If you are in this case, I recommend taking a look at `Issue #10`_ and let me know if this workaround doesn't work for you.\r
55\r
56.. code:: bash\r
57\r
58 export ARCHFLAGS=-Wno-error=unused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future\r
59\r
60If installation in *the quick way* doesn't work:\r
61\r
b89ece54 62- ``sudo pip uninstall rainbowstream``\r
49c9d9b4 63- use the *virtualenv way* above\r
64- `create an issue`_ and provide:\r
65\r
66 + Your OS\r
67 + Your Python version\r

82\r
83I shipped a feature which can display **tweet's images directly on terminal**.\r
84You can try it with:\r

90You also can change the config key ``IMAGE_ON_TERM`` to ``True`` inside the app \r

93or ``IMAGE_MAX_HEIGHT`` to control max height of every image.\r
