Welcome to Brownie!

  • Have you ever started a new project and implemented this little function foo or this datastructure bar you already implemented for another project?
  • Ever wondered why a specific feature is not in the standard library already?
  • Wanted to use that new datastructure but you are still stuck with this ancient Python version or are just not willing or able to switch to Python 3.x, yet?
  • And most importantly were too lazy to implement this datastructure which would be more appropriate to use?

Brownie wants to solve these problems by providing all these small things well documented, well tested and most importantly right now when you need it.

Take a look at the documentation for further information, visit Github for development or issue tracking or fetch the latest development version.


Brownie runs on Python 2.5-2.7 (tested on CPython and PyPy). In order to install it simply run pip install brownie or easy_install brownie, should you prefer the latter, to get the latest stable version.

If you really need to, you can also install the development version of Brownie with pip install brownie==dev. However I do not recommend it.


Should you want to participate in the development, fork the repository on Github and take a moment to read :ref:`contributing`, for a couple of general and not so general guidelines you should follow.
