Mac: Detailed Quick Installation

Apple's Mac operating system comes with Python already installed as a part of the core system software making running a MoinMoin wiki very easy.

Download MoinMoin

  1. Download the latest Moin from MoinMoinDownload page.

  2. Double-click to expand.

Starting Moin for the first time

By default, python scripts (.py) will open in TextEdit.app. For convenience, we'll want to associate .py files to open in Terminal.app so that we can simply double-click the wikiserver.py file to run Moin.

  1. Right-click (control-click) on the wikiserver.py file.

  2. From the contextual-menu,
    1. Select "Open with..." > "Other...";

    2. From the file dialog, select "All Applications", check "Always Open With", then navigate to Terminal.app (located in //Applications/Utilites/).
      (The "Always open with" sets Terminal.app as the default application so in future you can double-click the wikiserver.py file).

Daily Use

  1. Double-click on the wikiserver.py file and Terminal.app will launch.
  2. Point your browser at http://localhost:8080

  3. To quit the wiki, simply close the terminal window.
