decorator 4.2.1

Better living through Python with decorators


If you are lazy, just perform

$ pip install decorator

which will install just the module on your system.

If you prefer to install the full distribution from source, including the documentation, clone the GitHub repo or download the tarball, unpack it and run

$ pip install .

in the main directory, possibly as superuser.


If you have the source code installation you can run the tests with

$ python src/tests/ -v

or (if you have setuptools installed)

$ python test

Notice that you may run into trouble if in your system there is an older version of the decorator module; in such a case remove the old version. It is safe even to copy the module over an existing one, since we kept backward-compatibility for a long time.


The project is hosted on GitHub. You can look at the source here:
