I'm trying to install a clock program to run on my Raspberry Pi from the repository https://github.com/sqeekypotato/kids_clock.

So far, I have used: git clone https://github.com/sqeekypotato/kids_clock.git


cd kids_clock  

Only to then come to the realization that no setup.py file exists.

So my question is how do you go about running and installing the program other than with a setup file?

  • It is a flask app and so needs to be installed as such Commented Nov 9, 2017 at 6:04

Not every github Python project comes ready for use with pip/easy_install, but when you attempt to run it sometimes you'll quickly figure out the dependencies.

By running python app.py, from the initial errors it appears to depend on flask and weather-api, so this worked for me:

pip install --user flask weather-api
python app.py

Then it tells you to go to the local URL showing something like this:

  • Awesome, this is great. Did you come across any skewing to a certain position in the browser window when you tested?

  • +1 for going the extra mile and testing the steps yourself. Commented Nov 9, 2017 at 6:34
  • Yeah it behaves strangely as I widen or shrink the window. If you take a look at the code in templates/time.html, it appears to be misusing Bootstrap Grids. See here for proper usage.
