If you're playing along with the work on master, things have changed
recently, so here's an update.
To run Buildbot, you need to have buildbot-www installed. The way to
install that as a developer is to run
pip install -e www
in the source directory. That will download all of the requirements,
package them all up, and build a development version of the UI for
Buildbot to serve.
Two things are new:
1. You need to install 'buildbot-pkg' first, which contains a bunch
of common code for installing www plugins like the console view. This
pip install -e pkg
2. You need to remove all leftover directories named 'libs' under
www/. For me that was
rm -rf www/src/libs/ www/libs/ www/console_view/src/libs/
We're working on a way to make this a LOT simpler
(http://trac.buildbot.net/ticket/2847), so you can just use a simple
URL for the latest unreleased version of buildbot-www and buildbot-pkg
(and all other buildbot packages).
