Package installation

Installing an official release with pip

This is the recommended way to install Jam.py.

  1. Install pip. The easiest is to use the standalone pip installer. If your distribution already has pip installed, you might need to update it if it’s outdated. (If it’s outdated, you’ll know because installation won’t work.)
  2. If you’re using Linux, Mac OS X or some other flavor of Unix, enter the command sudo pip install jam.py at the shell prompt. If you’re using Windows, start a command shell with administrator privileges and run the command pip install jam.py. This will install Jam.py in your Python installation’s site-packages directory.

Installing an official release manually

  1. Download the package archive.
  2. Create a new directory and unpack the archive there.
  3. Go into the directory and run the setup command from command line
$ python setup.py install

This will install Jam.py in your Python installation’s site-packages directory.

Note

on some unix like systems you may need to switch to root or run: sudo python setup.py install
