The 1.1 version of akismet is officially tested and supported on the following versions of Python:
- Python 3.5
- Python 3.6
- Python 3.7
- Python 3.8
The preferred method of installing akismet is via pip, the standard Python package-installation tool. If you don’t have pip, instructions are available for how to obtain and install it. If you’re using a supported version of Python, pip came bundled with your installation of Python.
Once you have pip, type:
pip install akismet
Installing from a source checkout¶
If you want to work on akismet, you can obtain a source checkout.
git clone https://github.com/ubernostrum/akismet.git
From there, you can use git commands to check out the specific revision you want, and perform an “editable” install (allowing you to change code as you work on it) by typing:
pip install -e .
