Obtaining and Installing Comet¶
Installation using pip¶
$ virtualenv comet $ . comet/bin/activate $ pip install comet
Comet is developed targeting Python 2.7. It depends upon:
- Twisted (version 11.1.0 or later)
- lxml (version 2.3 or later)

How you make these dependencies available on your system is up to your (or, perhaps, to your system administrator). However, the author strongly suggests you might start by taking a look at virtualenv.
$ git clone https://github.com/jdswinbank/Comet.git
After installation, you should check that Comet is working properly. The
Twisted framework used by Comet makes this easy with its
$ trial comet
No failures or errors are expected in the test suite. If you see a problem, please contact the author for help.
