Debian GNU/Linux

PATHspider is packaged for Debian and packages are made available for the testing and stable-backports distributions. If you are running Debian stable, ensure that you have enabled the stable-backports repository in your apt sources.

To install PATHspider, simply run:

sudo apt install pathspider


If you are working from the source distribution (e.g. cloned git repository) then you will need to install the required dependencies. On Debian GNU/Linux, assuming you have the stable-backports repository enabled if you are running stable:

sudo apt build-dep pathspider


This will install both the runtime and the build dependencies required for PATHspider, its testsuite and its documentation.

On other platforms, you may install the dependencies required via pip:

pip install -r requirements.txt

If you wish to build the documentation from source or to use the testsuite, and you are installing your dependencies via pip, you will also need the following dependencies:

pip install -r requirements_dev.txt

With the dependencies installed, you can install PATHspider with:

python3 install
