The following preconditions must be met before you can install the Snapshot plug-in:

  • The Content Engine and Escenic assembly tool have been installed as described in the Escenic Content Engine Installation Guide and are in working order.

  • You have the required plug-in distribution file

  • You have access to a git server that can be used for central, shared storage of blueprints. This server can reside anywhere on your network or at some location in the cloud. You can, if you wish, use a public git hosting service such as GitHub or BitBucket. You must ensure that there is a user defined for every host on which you intend to install the Snapshot plug-in. Typically, this would mean one personal user for each developer plus general "test" and "production" users.
