This part of the documentation covers the installation of Pythonect. The first step to using any software package is getting it properly installed.
Pythonect works with Python version 2.6 and greater, but it will not work (yet) with Python 3. Dependencies are listed in setup.py and will be installed automatically as part of any of the techniques listed below.
You can also install pythonect from source. The latest release (0.7) is available from GitHub.
Once you have a copy of the source, unzip or untar the package, change directory into the extracted distribution and type:
$ python setup.py install
To download the full source history from Git, see Source Control.
