Installation

Requirements

Installing Gstore

Gstore is a Python-only package hosted on PyPI. The recommended installation method is pip-installing into a virtualenv:

$ python -m pip install gstore

The command gstore will be available to you from the command line.

Unstable version

The master of all the material is the Git repository at https://github.com/sergeyklay/gstore. So, can also install the latest unreleased development version directly from the master branch on GitHub. It is a work-in-progress of a future stable release so the experience might be not as smooth.:

$ python -m pip install -e git://github.com/sergeyklay/gstore.git#egg=gstore
# OR
$ python -m pip install --upgrade https://github.com/sergeyklay/gstore.git/archive/master.tar.gz

This command will download the latest version of Gstore from the Python Package Index and install it to your system.

Note

The master branch will always contain the latest unstable version, so the experience might be not as smooth. If you wish to check older versions or formal, tagged release, please switch to the relevant tag.

Verify that now we have the current development version identifier with the .dev suffix, for example:

$ gstore --version
# gstore 0.5.0
