Expose or make apparent that pywikibot is available in PAWS
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When a user logs into PAWS, it is not immediately apparent that pywikibot is already available to them via the PATH and virtualenv. Document this on wiki and perhaps in the PAWS UI.

The best documentation about this is here however this doesn't quickly show up on and is linked with no real explanation on

I assume this task is about:

tools.paws@jupyter-john-vandenberg-3239244:~$ activate                                                                                    
bash: /srv/pwb/bin/activate: Permission denied

No, that's expeceted - you are generally expected to do source /srv/pwb/bin/activate. Also it is already activated by default (try which python), so this isn't about this.

This is about the fact that when you open a terminal it doesn't really make it clear that pwb is installed and how you can run scripts.

I've started a walk through intended for GCI

I suggest adding to the PATH one way or another.

ok, I've added /srv/pwb to path too, so is in path now.

I wanna reword it to be more comprehensive and then close this.

@Chicocvenancio, what's necessary to fix this task? I understand the main issue is to make easier to know that Pywikibot is available in PAWS, no?
