The installation of PyScaffold requires:

Additionally, if you want to create a Django project:


In most cases only Django needs to be installed manually since PyScaffold will download and install its requirements automatically when using pip. One exception might be setuptools if you are not using a current version of Virtual Environments as development environment. In case you are using the system installation of Python from your Linux distribution make sure setuptools is installed. To install it on Debian or Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

In case of Redhat or Fedora:

sudo yum install python-setuptools


If you have pip installed, then simply type:

pip install --upgrade pyscaffold

to get the lastest stable version. The most recent development version can be installed with:

pip install --pre --upgrade pyscaffold

Using pip also has the advantage that all requirements are automatically installed.
