This chapter will show how to obtain and install Pyro.
Pyro is written in 100% Python. It works on any recent operating system where a suitable supported Python implementation is available (3.7 or newer).
Obtaining and installing Pyro¶
- Some Linux distributions may offer Pyro5 through their package manager. Make sure you install the correct one for the python version that you are using. It may be more convenient to just pip install it instead in a virtualenv.
- Anaconda users can install the Pyro5 package from conda-forge using
conda install -c conda-forge pyro5
- Pip install
pip install Pyro5should do the trick. Pyro is available here on pypi .
- Manual installation from source
- Download the source distribution archive (Pyro5-X.YZ.tar.gz) from Pypi or from a Github release,
extract it and
python setup.py install. The serpent serialization library must also be installed.
- Source is on Github: https://github.com/irmen/Pyro5 The required serpent serializer library is there as well: https://github.com/irmen/Serpent
Third party libraries that Pyro5 uses¶
Interesting stuff that is extra in the source distribution archive and not with packaged versions¶
If you decide to download the distribution (.tar.gz) you have a bunch of extras over simply installing the Pyro library directly:
- dozens of examples that demonstrate various Pyro features (highly recommended to examine these, many paragraphs in this manual refer to relevant examples here)
- the unittest suite that checks for correctness and regressions
