How to write your own Lino application

Just in case you feel ready to start your own Lino application, here is how to do it. Don't panic if you get stuck. You may leave this section for later.

  • Find a name for the Python package that will hold your application (something like "Così", "Avanti", "Tera", "Voga", ...). A good application name should identify your application so that its users can talk about it.

    The code name for "Lino Così" is lino_cosi

    Consult PyPI for a list of names that are already taken.

  • Run getlino startproject and answer the questions.
