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

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://github.com/kennethreitz/requests.git
Or, download the tarball:
$ curl -OL https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/tarball/master # 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:
$ python setup.py install
