This part of the documentation covers the installation of the Koordinates Python Client Library.


Installing the Python Library is simple with pip. All you need to do is run the following in your terminal:

$ pip install koordinates

Getting the Code

The Koordinates Python Client Library is on GitHub.

Development occurs in the master branch, and releases are tagged and pushed to PyPI regularly.

You can either clone the public git repository:

$ git clone git://

Or, download the latest release.

Once you have a copy of the source, you can embed it in your Python package, or install it into your virtualenv/site-packages:

$ python install


We strongly encourage you to use the latest release of the Python Library to ensure you get the benefit of fixes, improvements, and new features. The library follows the Semantic Versioning guidelines, so all releases with the same major version number (eg. 1.x.x) will be backwards compatible.
