Thanks to the hard-working hamsters at the ActiveState PPM Index, Sqitch is available for installation on Windows. According to the Sqitch PPM Build Status, the latest version is now available for installation. All you have to do is:
- Download and install ActivePerl
- Open the Command Prompt
ppm install App-Sqitch
As of this writing, only PostgreSQL is supported, so you will need to install PostgreSQL.
But otherwise, that’s it. In fact, this incantation works for any OS that ActivePerl supports. Here’s where you can find the
sqitch executable on each:
- Mac OS X:
/usr/local/ActivePerl-5.16/site/binif you run
- Solaris/SPARC (Business edition-only):
This makes it easy to get started with Sqitch on any of those platforms without having to become a Perl expert. So go for it, and then get started with the tutorial!
