Working from version control or a tarball

To follow development or start experiments, checkout the complete code and documentation source with mercurial:

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/hpk42/pytest/

You can also go to the python package index and download and unpack a TAR file:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pytest/

Activating a checkout with setuptools

With a working Distribute or setuptools installation you can type:

python setup.py develop

in order to work inline with the tools and the lib of your checkout.

If this command complains that it could not find the required version of “py” then you need to use the development pypi repository:

python setup.py develop -i http://pypi.testrun.org
