we are interested in Sage cell,
does the virtual machine distribution have the sage cell server installed?
If not can you make it? Or alternatively you can simplify the install process?Thu, 22 Mar 2012 07:45:11 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/Answer by kcrisman for <p>hello i'm a webmaster of a big students international portal

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?answer=13353#post-id-13353Currently the Sage cell is not part of Sage. That will probably change in the future, but for now you will want to look at [the github code site for it](https://github.com/sagemath/sagecell). Installation instructions are [here](https://github.com/sagemath/sagecell/tree/master/doc).Thu, 22 Mar 2012 08:40:24 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?answer=13353#post-id-13353Answer by trony for <p>hello i'm a webmaster of a big students international portal

sage cell install is a complex process.
may be someone developing sage cell can mirror
his devel vm and put online?Thu, 22 Mar 2012 09:26:52 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?answer=13364#post-id-13364Comment by trony for <p>yes i've read.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20083#post-id-20083i've read it. best if you provide a vm with everything installed, so community can test everyting and we'll get a better sage, embeddable in 1000s websites. also may be useful to have multiple VMs on different physical machines to load balance requests on a possible big use on our or others websites. in other words A little http://www.wolframalpha.com/ :)Thu, 22 Mar 2012 13:47:34 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20083#post-id-20083Comment by trony for <p>yes i've read.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20006#post-id-20006Yes, we plan to support private installation as well as GAE installation.Sat, 31 Mar 2012 00:15:57 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20006#post-id-20006Comment by Jason Grout for <p>yes i've read.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20077#post-id-20077In the next few months, the plan is to move the architecture to Google App Engine (web frontend) and EC2 (computation backend), which gives us the scalability trony talks about.Fri, 23 Mar 2012 03:40:58 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20077#post-id-20077Comment by Jason Grout for <p>yes i've read.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20078#post-id-20078Everyone developing the sage cell works on linux or OSX and does not use a VM. We have one student joining us that uses Windows, so we are getting him set up with a VM. It would be then possible to mirror his VM and put it up somewhere, so we'll look at that in coming weeks. Even better is to finish the cell server spkg mentioned my answer.Fri, 23 Mar 2012 03:39:09 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20078#post-id-20078Comment by Alex Kramer for <p>yes i've read.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20086#post-id-20086Hi, I'm one of the developers of the project. We're currently working on simplifying the install process quite a bit and eliminating some of the dependency requirements. For now, you can always embed the sage cell into any webpage you want, though. EDIT: Here's the embedding documentation: https://github.com/sagemath/sagecell/blob/master/doc/embedding.rst, there's a fairly simple example at the bottom of the page.Thu, 22 Mar 2012 11:48:05 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20086#post-id-20086Answer by Jason Grout for <p>hello i'm a webmaster of a big students international portal

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?answer=13365#post-id-13365I've made a Sage Cell server spkg. The idea is that a simple, nonsecure cell server is as easy as sage -i sage-cell.spkg. As Alex pointed out, we're ironing out some dependency issues. In the last few days, for example, we've eliminated the need for mongodb (Ira Hanson contributed a sqlalchemy backend). We'll be working on this spkg in the coming weeks.Fri, 23 Mar 2012 03:37:06 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?answer=13365#post-id-13365Comment by trony for <p>I've made a Sage Cell server spkg.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20033#post-id-20033how and why sage cell server used MongoDB and now sqlalchemy ? for what purpose?Wed, 28 Mar 2012 04:33:20 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20033#post-id-20033Comment by Jason Grout for <p>I've made a Sage Cell server spkg.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20007#post-id-20007It used MongoDB because it was built to scale to big installations. It can also use sqlalchemy so you don't have to install mongodb. A very preliminary version of an spkg is announced here: http://groups.google.com/group/sage-devel/browse_thread/thread/6ddd7315b87ed3dcSat, 31 Mar 2012 00:15:28 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8718/sage-cell-server-install/?comment=20007#post-id-20007
