See the Pythonect Tutorial: Learn By Example for more examples and details.


There are a few ways to install Pythonect.

  1. You can install directly from PyPI using easy_install or pip:

    easy_install Pythonect


    pip install Pythonect
  2. You can clone the git repository somewhere in your system:

    git clone git://

    Then you should do following steps:

    cd pythonect
    python install

    Alternatively, if you use pip, you can install directly from the git repository:

    pip install \
            git+git:// \

For any of the above methods, if you want to do a system-wide installation, you will have to do this with root permissions (e.g. using su or sudo).
