To install restkit using pip you must make sure you have a recent version of distribute installed:
$ curl -O http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py $ sudo python distribute_setup.py $ easy_install pip
To install or upgrade to the latest released version of restkit:
$ pip install -r requirements.txt $ pip install restkit
Note: if you get an error on MacOSX try to install with the following arguments:
$ env ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64" pip install http-parser
Installation from source¶
You can install Restkit from source as simply as you would install any other Python package. Restkit uses setuptools which will automatically fetch all dependencies (including setuptools itself).
Get a Copy¶
$ git clone git://github.com/benoitc/restkit.git
$ python setup.py install
Note: If you don’t use setuptools or distribute, make sure http-parser is installed first.
