gPrime is a web-based application for genealogy. It uses the Gramps API for data, reports, import/export, etc.
gPrime is looking for help on many different topics:
gPrime is also looking for some advsiors! If you would like to help developed focused goals for the future development of gPrime, please let us know:
Python package dependencies:
On Windows and Mac, perhaps the easiest method of using gPrime is to start with an Anaconda Python3 environment.
Once you have a Python environment, install gPrime with:
pip install gprime --user -U
(--user installs into user space, not global space. -U updates gPrime and dependencies. Leave off --user and use Adminstrative install method (sudo) to install for everyone.)
To run gPrime, you need to do two things:
To create a site directory, provide a name for the tree:
gprime --create="My Family Tree"
Then, you need at least one user (as an example, we use "demo" as the username):
gprime --add-user --user=demo Password: (does not show any characters as you type)
Optionally, you may now want to also import some data (gPrime supports Gramps XML, GEDCOM, and JSON import formats):
The site-directory has a folder named "media" for all of the images and other documents. On --file-import, gPrime will atempt to import any identified media by copying them into this media folder. If you want to prevent the copying, use --import-media=False. You can alternatively manually copy files into the media folder, or, in the previous example, make family_tree/media link to your media folder.
You can run gprime directly from either the github-downloaded directory, or from the installed version.

Rather than having to list all of these options on a command-line, you can put them in the SITE-DIR/config.cfg file:
### This is the contents of file SITE-DIR/config.cfg. ### Note that hyphens in option names are converted to underscores. port = 8001 site_dir = "My_Family_Tree_Folder" prefix = "/jones" sitename = "Jerry's"
