Installation of Requests

This part of the documentation covers the installation of Requests. The first step to using any software package is getting it properly installed.

To install Requests, simply run this simple command in your terminal of choice:

Get the Source Code

Requests is actively developed on GitHub, where the code is always available.

You can either clone the public repository:

$ git clone git://

Or, download the tarball:

$ curl -OL
# optionally, zipball is also available (for Windows users).

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

$ cd requests
$ python -m pip install .
