Installation of Pynguin

This part of the documentation covers the installation of Pynguin, since proper installation of a software package is the first step to use it.

Using PIP

The easiest way to obtain Pynguin is by running this command in your terminal of choice:

$ pip install pynguin

We highly recommend that you do not install Pynguin in your system’s or user’s Python package store; instead we recommend to use a virtual environment. This prevents that you spoil your system package store with Pynguin’s dependencies, which can easily cause version conflicts with other Python packages.
