The installation of django-authority is easy. Whether you want to use the latest stable or development version, you have the following options.

The latest stable version

The latest, stable version is always available via the Python package index_ (PyPI). You can download the latest version on the site but most users would prefer either pip or easy_install:

pip install django-authority

# .. or with easy_install:

easy_install django-authority

Development version

The latest development version is located on it’s Github account. You can checkout the package using the Git scm:

git clone

Then install it manually:

cd django-authority
python install


The development version is not fully tested and may contain bugs, so we prefer to use the latest package from pypi.
