The following are some basic instructions about how to install HoneySAP on different environments.

Using pip

Installing honeysap is simple with pip, just run the following command on a terminal:

pip install honeysap

First step would be to install system packages that are required:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git python-pip python-dev build-essentials

After having all the system packages ready, you can proceed to install HoneySAP:

cd /opt
