Pint has no dependencies except Python itself. In runs on Python 3.6+.

You can install it (or upgrade to the latest version) using pip:

$ pip install -U pint

That’s all! You can check that Pint is correctly installed by starting up python, and importing Pint:

>>> import pint
>>> pint.__version__  

Or running the test suite:

>>> pint.test()


If you have an old system installation of Python and you don’t want to mess with it, you can try Anaconda CE. It is a free Python distribution by Continuum Analytics that includes many scientific packages. To install pint from the conda-forge channel instead of through pip use:

$ conda install -c conda-forge pint

Getting the code

You can also get the code from PyPI or GitHub. You can either clone the public repository:

$ git clone git://

Download the tarball:

$ curl -OL

Or, download the zipball:

$ curl -OL

Once you have a copy of the source, you can embed it in your Python package, or install it into your site-packages easily:

$ python install
