Getting started


You can install storytracker from the Python Package Index using the command-line tool pip. If you don’t have pip installed follow these instructions. Here is all it takes.

$ pip install storytracker

You won’t need it for archival, but the analytical tools explained later one require that you have a supported web browser installed. Firefox will work, but it’s recommended that you install PhantomJS, a “headless” browser that runs behind the scenes.

On Ubuntu Linux that’s as easy as:

$ sudo apt-get install phantomjs

In Apple’s OSX you can use Homebrew to install it like so:

$ brew update && brew install phantomjs
