Installing / Upgrading

HPLeftHandClient is in the Python Package Index.

Installing with pip

We prefer pip to install hplefthandclient on platforms other than Windows:

$ pip install hplefthandclient

To upgrade using pip:

$ pip install --upgrade hplefthandclient

Installing with easy_install

If you must install hplefthandclient using setuptools do:

$ easy_install hplefthandclient

To upgrade do:

$ easy_install -U hplefthandclient

Installing from source

If you’d rather install directly from the source (i.e. to stay on the bleeding edge), install the C extension dependencies then check out the latest source from github and install the driver from the resulting tree:

$ git clone git://
$ cd python-lefthandclient/
$ python install
