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. But you may leave this section for later. And don't panic if you get stuck.

  • Find a name for your application. Something like "Così", "Avanti", "Tera", "Voga", ... A good application name should identify your application so that its users can talk about it.

  • Find the code name of the Python package that will hold your application. Consult PyPI for a list of code names that are already taken.

    For example, the code name for "Lino Così" is lino_cosi.

  • Run getlino startproject and answer the questions.
