Installation

Install with pip

The easiest way to install makelint is from pypi.org using pip. For example:

pip install makelint

If you’re on a linux-type system (such as ubuntu) the above command might not work if it would install into a system-wide location. If that’s what you really want you might need to use sudo, e.g.:

sudo pip install makelint

In general though I wouldn’t really recommend doing that though since things can get pretty messy between your system python distributions and your pip managed directories. Alternatively you can install it for your user with:

pip install --user makelint

which I would probably recommend for most users.

Install from source

You can also install from source with pip. You can download a release package from github and then install it directly with pip. For example:

pip install v0.1.0.tar.gz

Note that the release packages are automatically generated from git tags which are the same commit used to generate the corresponding version package on pypi.org. So whether you install a particular version from github or pypi shouldn’t matter.

Pip can also install directly from github. For example:

pip install git+https://github.com/cheshirekow/makelint.git

If you wish to test a pre-release or dev package from a branch called foobar you can install it with:

pip install "git+https://github.com/cheshirekow/[email protected]"
