Clone the github repository, or download a source release from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pygrib.
Copy setup.cfg.template to setup.cfg, open in text editor, follow instructions in comments for editing. If you are using the old grib_api library instead of the new eccodes library, be sure to uncomment the last line setup.cfg.
Run 'python setup.py build'
Run 'python setup.py install' (with sudo if necessary)
Run 'python test.py' to test your pygrib installation.
