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


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 issues between your system’s package store and Pynguin’s dependencies - which can easily cause version conflicts with other Python packages.

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

$ pip install pynguin

Released versions are also available through our GitHub repository.

You can either clone the public repository:

$ git clone git://

Or download the tarball:

$ curl -OL
# optionally, zipball is also available (for Windows users).
