This part of the documentation covers the installation of Requests. The first step to using any software package is getting it properly installed.
Installing Requests is simple with pip, just run this in your terminal:
$ pip install requests
or, with easy_install:
$ easy_install requests
But, you really shouldn’t do that.
Requests is actively developed on GitHub, where the code is always available.
You can either clone the public repository:
$ git clone git://github.com/kennethreitz/requests.git
Download the tarball:
$ curl -OL https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/tarball/master
Or, download the zipball:
$ curl -OL https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/zipball/master
Once you have a copy of the source, you can embed it in your Python package, or install it into your site-packages easily:
$ python setup.py install
