This article explains the various ways you can build a development environment for EPrints source contributions. If you have a method not listed here then please add it. Instructions assume familiarity with EPrints and the command line. You can use repositories built in this way to test contributions to EPrints source before pushing them to the git remote.

If you find bugs with any of these instructions please update them

Ubuntu 14.04

Take a clean ubuntu 14.04 build

sudo su
apt-get install git
echo "deb http://deb.eprints.org/ nightly/
deb-src http://deb.eprints.org/ source/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eprints.nightly.list
apt-get update
apt-get build-dep eprints
ln -s /home/<yourusername>/eprints /usr/share/eprints3
echo "Include /usr/share/eprints3/cfg/apache.conf" > /etc/apache2/sites-available/eprints-git.conf
sudo a2ensite eprints-git

su <yourusername>
cd ~
git clone git@github.com:eprints/eprints.git

echo "package EPrints::SystemSettings;

\$EPrints::SystemSettings::conf =
        'base_path' => '/usr/share/eprints3',
        'version_id' => 'git',
        'version' => 'EPrints (development version)',
        'user' => '$USER',
        'group' => '$USER',
        'smtp_server' => 'smtp',


cd eprints
sudo service apache2 restart


User-space EPrints (when EPrints is already installed on the VM)
