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.
Distribute & Pip¶
Installing Pythonect is simple with pip:
$ pip install pythonect
or, with easy_install:
$ easy_install pythonect
Using easy_install is discouraged. Why? Read here.
Download the Source¶
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.
The latest version of Pythonect will always be available here:
When a new version is available, upgrading is simple:
$ pip install pythonect --upgrade
