- Python’s Setuptools
Exscript takes care of installing the following dependencies for you:

You have 2 options installing exscript: You can install it using pip or get the most bleeding edge version directly from github.
Installing using pip
Of course you need to have pip installed.
sudo pip install exscript
Installing directly from github using git
git clone git://github.com/knipknap/exscript cd exscript sudo make install
Checking installation (optional)

If this prints the Exscript help, your installation is complete.
Running the automated test suite
If you installed from github, you can run the integrated testsuite.
