Python Screencast: Install/Setup "SST Web Test Framework" on Ubuntu 12.04

I uploaded a 5 minute video/screencast showing how to install and setup SST Web Test Framework on Ubuntu (Precise Pangolin 12.04).

I step through: creating a virtualenv, installing SST from PyPI, and creating a basic automated web test:


the following steps are essentially a transcript of what I did...


install system package dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv xvfb

create a "virtualenv":

$ virtualenv ENV

active the virtualenv:

$ cd ENV
$ source bin/activate
(ENV)$

* notice your prompt changed, signifying the virtualenv is active

install SST using `pip`:

(ENV)$ pip install sst

Now SST is installed. You can check the version of SST:

$ sst-run -V
