Current status

Kartograph.py is still beta, which means that there are some bugs left to fix.

However, feel free to test it while it is been developed. To do so I recommend to use virtualenv and virtualenv-wrapper.

> mkdir kartograph-py
> git clone git@github.com:kartograph/kartograph.py.git kartograph-py

# create and activate a new virtual environment
> mkvirtualenv kartograph

# install and use Kartograph
(kartograph)> cd kartograph-py
(kartograph)> python setup.py install

See install documentation
