Quick install guide¶
Before you can use the Aeternity SDK, you’ll need to get it installed. This guide will guide you to a minimal installation that’ll work while you walk through the introduction. For more installation options check the installation guide.
The Aeternity Python SDK requires Python v3.7
Get the latest version of Python at https://www.python.org/downloads/ or with your operating system’s package manager.
You can verify that Python is installed by typing
python from your shell;
you should see something like:
