Now let's get Cython installed. Think of Cython as a tool like Bison, flex, or GCC; it takes an input source and generates another that you compile and link:
- Fedora – Fedora comes with the yum package manager. So, you can simply run
yum install Cython.
- Ubuntu/Debian – As with Fedora, Ubuntu has a package available via aptitude:
apt-get install Cython.
- Mac – Install Xcode and the command-line tools. Then, run the following:
$ curl -O http://www.cython.org/release/Cython-0.18.tar.gz
$ tar zxvf Cython-0.18.tar.gz
$ cd Cython-0.18
$ sudo python setup.py install
- Windows – Although there are a plethora of options available, following this wiki is the safest option to stay up to date: http://wiki.cython.org/InstallingOnWindows.
