Installing a released version


As a Python egg (via easy_install or pip)

You can install the most recent Werkzeug version using easy_install:

easy_install Werkzeug

Alternatively you can also use pip:

pip install Werkzeug

Either way we strongly recommend using these tools in combination with virtualenv.

This will install a Werkzeug egg in your Python installation’s site-packages directory.

From the tarball release

  1. Download the most recent tarball from the download page.
  2. Unpack the tarball.
  3. python setup.py install

Note that the last command will automatically download and install setuptools if you don’t already have it installed. This requires a working Internet connection.

This will install Werkzeug into your Python installation’s site-packages directory.
