We recommend installing Pecan with pip, but you can also try with easy_install. Creating a spot in your environment where Pecan can be isolated from other packages is best practice.
$ virtualenv pecan-env $ cd pecan-env $ source bin/activate
The above commands create a virtual environment and activate it. This will isolate Pecan’s dependency installations from your system packages, making it easier to debug problems if needed.
Next, let’s install Pecan:
$ pip install pecan
Development (Unstable) Version¶
If you want to run the latest development version of Pecan you will need to install git and clone the repo from GitHub:
$ git clone https://github.com/pecan/pecan.git
Assuming your virtual environment is still activated, call
install the development version.:
$ cd pecan $ python setup.py develop
master development branch is volatile and is generally not
recommended for production use.
Alternatively, you can also install from GitHub directly with
$ pip install -e git://github.com/pecan/pecan.git#egg=pecan
