This site contains Legacy ESGF Publisher Software documentation. For documentation for recent versions of the software, please see: https://esg-publisher.readthedocs.org/
The esg-publisher requires a pre-installed ESGF node and the installation of CDAT. By default the installation of the esg-publisher is part of the ESGF node installation that also installs CDAT and generates most of the publisher configs.
If you want to install a new version without upgrading the ESGF node you can use pip or install the package from source.
In order to install/upgrade the publisher in the default esgf-pub conda environment, you must run effectively as the root user.
Installation with pip¶
$ source /usr/local/conda/bin/activate esgf-pub $ pip install --upgrade esgcet # Upgrades the esg-publsher (aka `esgcet`) to the latest available version and all prerequisite packages
To install a specific version of the publisher (without upgrading all packages), eg. v3.5.11, perform the source command as above, and:
$ pip install esgcet==3.5.11
Installation from source¶
Clone the Github repo and install the esgcet package using setup.py.
ESGF v2.5 or later
$ source /usr/local/conda/bin/activate esgf-pub $ git clone https://github.com/ESGF/esg-publisher.git $ cd esg-publisher/src/python/esgcet $ python setup.py install
ESGF v2.4.x or earlier
$ source /etc/esg.env $ git clone https://github.com/ESGF/esg-publisher.git $ cd esg-publisher/src/python/esgcet $ python setup.py install
