RSSerpent is written in the Python programming language. You must have a valid Python installation on your system in order to get RSSerpent up & run. The most universal way to install Python is to grab a installer from the official Python download page. An alternative approach is to install via a package manager:
# Arch sudo pacman -S python # Debian/Ubuntu sudo apt update sudo apt install python3 python3-pip
# Homebrew brew install python # MacPorts sudo port selfupdate sudo port install python
# Chocolatey choco install python # Scoop scoop install python
If you need to manage multiple versions of Python on your system, checkout pyenv.
If you are using Windows, you will need to set the environment variable
Currently RSSerpent does not support Python 3.10.
After successful installation, you need to run
python -V (or
python3 -V) to verify the currently installed Python's version, as the default Python version provided by some package managers might not be compatible with RSSerpent. Please refer to the documentation of respective package manager to install a compatible Python version.
Make sure you have git installed too.
