WARNING - Important notice

This project is now DEAD. It was born with the intent to provide a better (IMHO) alternative to Pip. Since now Pip has got a lot of great improvements, this is not needed anymore.

So the advice here is to use Pip instead. Pyg has not been maintained for over 2 years now. It may well be broken in many places. The code is old and would need a refactoring, but there is no need anymore.


Pyg is a Python Package Manager that is meant to be an alternative to easy_install.


To install Pyg it takes only one simple command:

$ pip install pyg

or if you must:

$ easy_install pyg

And then you should no more need them!

Installing from source

Also, you can download the source and after unpacking the archive:

$ python install

Note: You may need root privileges to install.


If you need further information you can check the documentation at:

Building the documentation

You can build the documentation locally. In order to build the html documentation you need to install Sphinx. Simply run:

$ pyg install sphinx

Again, you may need root privileges. Now you can build the docs. If you haven't already downloaded the source download it and open your terminal:

$ cd docs
$ make html

The docs are now in _build/html/

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
