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.
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:
Python 3.7.y [GCC 4.x] on linux Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>>
The mimimum required python version is 3.7
Install the SDK¶
The Aeternity Python SDK package name is
aepp-sdk and it is available
via the pypi.org repository.
To install or upgrade run the command
pip install -U aepp-sdk
To verify that the Aeternity SDK can be seen by Python, type
python from your shell.
Then at the Python prompt, try to import aeternity:
>>> import aeternity >>> print(aeternity._version()) snapshot
To verify that the CLI is available in your
PATH run the command
$ aecli --version aecli, version snapshot
That’s it – you can now move onto the tutorial.
