Using omelette should work I think, you can read about it here:

maybe schooltool developers will include it in the default buildout.cfg when they'll have the time.

Hi all,

I use Eclipse to view and edit schooltool sources code. I have install pydev for eclipse and create new Pydev project "SchoolTool_update" and then add folder "src" in schooltool-1.3.0.tgz in there. When I build SchoolTool_update 100 errors and 2048 warnings. Most of errors are no libs.

What are libs, which schooltool dependence?

Who can run schooltool.tgz successfully, please help me?

My guess is that it is extremely unlikely you'll get SchoolTool to work in Eclipse. I'm sure it is possible, but... the most likely result is just making you pull your hair out. Our developers all use vi or emacs. In particular, they've got some helpful macros for vi if you're interested.

I suggest disabling pylint (and maybe pydev?) error checking, and do not use Eclipse as the build / run tool. You can use it as a *text editor* for the source files, but you'll still need to use console commands like:
~/schooltool$ make run
for running the server. Maybe that can also be configured in Eclipse, but I'm not familiar with the editor enough to help you.

Thanks Hoffman and Justas

 Eemacs IDE is the my expected answer.
