Python easy_install – The PEAK Developers’ Center

Easy Install is a python module bundled with setuptools that lets you automatically download, build, install, and manage Python packages. That is to say – super easy installation of a long list of Python modules.

You can download it from here .

Installation on Mac OS:

1. Download the appropriate egg for your version of Python (e.g. setuptools-0.6c9-py2.4.egg). Do NOT rename it.
2. Run it as if it were a shell script, e.g. sh setuptools-0.6c9-py2.4.egg. Setuptools will install itself using the matching version of Python (e.g. python2.4), and will place the easy_install executable in the default location for installing Python scripts (as determined by the standard distutils configuration files, or by the Python installation).
